Clipper Lighters: Why are they so popular?
A Spanish Company, Flamagas, invented the Clipper lighter. The company has been around since the late 1950s. With the advent of different types of high-performance plastic, the company created several new materials and eventually came up with the world's first plastic lighter – Clipper. Clipper is the brand name of a refillable butane lighter. The Clipper lighters are generally produced in Barcelona, Spain, and others are manufactured in Chennai – India, and Shanghai – China. Clipper is popular for its range of lighters, gas refills, and other accessories. The first Clipper lighter was made in 1972 but is popular in more than 80 countries today. Its production is close to 450 million units annually and can easily be called the world's bestselling lighter.

A lighter's flint shortens over time and needs replacement. However, the frequency of flint replacement varies depending on how often the lighter is used. The good news is that flints are affordable, and replacing flint is quick and easy. Replacing flint is a simple process. First, the user has to remove the poker and unscrew the bottom to remove the old flint. After that, they should drop the new flint inside and screw the bottom back into place. And that's it. It is all ready to be used. No technicalities, no hard-n-fast rules. If you purchase a pack of flints, it will likely last you for your entire Clipper lighter collection.
