1. Set flame adjustment near (-) lowest position.
2. Remove filler valve cover (if applicable).
3. All air must be removed from gas tank in order to fill to maximum capacity.
4. Fill with lighter in an upside-down position.
5. Put nozzle tip directly on valve opening, and press down firmly for 4-5 seconds.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 if necessary. Butane spray-back may occur with some lighters
when full. If the lighter is not equipped with a gas viewing hole, use the following steps
to ensure the gas tank is full:
a. Hold lighter in an upright position.
b. Depress the filler valve with a ball point pen or small screwdriver until hissing stops.


MECHANISM – Avoid carrying lighter in an area susceptible to lint and dust. A clean lighter will operate more efficiently. It is recommended that compressed air be used periodically to keep the lighter free of dirt and carbon build-up. Never move the electrode (sparking wire) on an Electro-Quartz lighter, as this would cause misfires.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to use Colibri premium butane, and be instructed how to refill properly. Colibri premium butane is specifically designed for Colibri lighters. The canister is pressurized at 45 psi, and is the cleanest available. Use of other brands of butane with unknown pressures and levels of contamination will clog the butane feeding system, and affect the performance of the lighter.

FINISH – Because Colibri cannot control how a lighter is carried and used, the finish of a lighter is not covered under warranty. To preserve the finish, do not carry with coins or keys, as they will scratch the outer  surface. Clean the outer surface using only a soft, clean dry cloth.
Colibri lighters carry a one-year limited repair service warranty. This limited warranty covers mechanical parts only and excludes damage resulting from accident, misuse, tampering or abuse. The outer case finish is not covered by this warranty.

For Warranty Service:
1. All warranty repairs must have properly filled-out warranty coupon or dated sales receipt.
2. Out-of-warranty repairs are billed accordingly. Estimates available upon request.
Exchange offers require pre-approval.
3. Clearly print name and address, and enclose inside of package with lighter(s).
4. Enclose $7.50 for shipping and handling.

Shipping Instructions:
1. Bleed the tank. Do not ship the lighter with gas.
2. Place lighter in original gift box, and return in a sturdy cardboard outer box.
3. Insure package with carrier and send to:
