I was out yesterday and saw Ronson "ultra refined for maximum care" universal gas lighter refil.. it's the one in the yellow can.. Butane UN1950. "Highest quality butane for lighters" - now i know ronson at least used to make very high quality lighters so i dunno..

I recently bought meself a turbo flame lighter and heard using crap butane damages em.. Plus when i harvest I absolutely must must musht make some BHO. never had it and want some so so badly..

This ronson stuff was 0.85 for a pretty big can.. is it any good for BHO? if it is im going back to buy a boxful of it :rofl:
Does being on fire count as fixed?
If I owned an opticians, I would get the sign printed in a blurry font.

I wouldn't recommend them mate. It might be purer but how pure? Atleast with Newport and Colibri it states zero or near zero impurities and Newport is guaranteed to have less than 50ppm of non volatile contaminants.

Alright Captain, Ronson isn't the best butane you can buy (London, Colibri, anything else which says zero impurities), but I would imagine it's ok to use for BHO (god, I love that stuff :rofl: )
Hope this helps mate,
Gerald

ETA-Just seen Gunna's post - aren't opinions brilliant :yep:

I have edited my post Gerald, perhaps you saw my first draft whilst I was editting it. I don't recommend the use of anything besides Colibri, Vector and those brands that have the Near Zero Impurities logo, such as Newport amongst others.

Our Benchmark

Butane gas lighter refills and the 'Near Zero Impurities' benchmark.


To generate heat for butane powered thermal products, not requiring a conventional flame. (Examples are windproof, turbo and flameless cigarette, pipe or cigar lighters, miniature blow torches, miniature soldering irons, hand warmers, hot food containers, performing dolls, toy trains, hair stylers and curlers, portable smoothing irons, mobile thermal jackets, hot cushions, medical warmer belts).

For all such thermal products the butane lighter refill must not have an impurity content above 50 parts per million (i.e. one part in 20,000 parts) because a higher impurity content MAY DAMAGE THE EQUIPMENT BEYOND REPAIR.

Unlike Keen (World Marketing) Limited other makers of branded butane lighter gas refills DO NOT publish the stable impurity levels of their products which may be because their unstable impurity levels increase to several hundred parts per million.

The Near Zero Impurities logo has become the quality assurance standard in butane gas manufacture

These famous brands of lighter gas are all manufactured to the Newport system and are permitted to use the zero impurity benchmark.

Colton
Cora
CTC
Davidoff
David Ross
Dunhill
IMCO
K2
London
Newport
Sarome
Silver Match
Unilight

I haven't corrected you Gerald; you already mentioned that brands with the Near Zero Impurities logo are best. We just disagree about Ronson being okay to use. Your view is that it should be okay to use if it states that it's ultra refined, where as my view is that nothing other than those brands that have the Near Zero Impurities label should be used. Atleast you're guaranteed for the impurities to be less than 50ppm under the NZI standard.

By the way, I should point out that the list of brands that I gave in my last post is quite old. Each manufacturer can change the composition of their butane at any time, so always look for the Near Zero Impurities logo.

As stated, look for the 'near zero impurities' label on the cans. I use these free delivery too :P

You could try this!, from the Knowledge base!!
Mirror Test

Take a mirror or piece of glass and spray some liquid butane into it. A good amount. (You may need some pliers to press the nozzle in) Wait about 5-10mins for the butane to evaporate and check the mirror for a white residue like the kind pictured. The residue also smells bad. Don?t confuse water condensation for residue. Also even Colibri leaves a very slight residue, but it doesn?t smell. Check for Smell.

(First mirror picture is of a clean mirror, second of the butane evaporating and last one is the white residue from Bernz-o-matic brand butane)

Hope that helps!!

E2A; sorry the links to the pics dont work but they do in the knowledge base!!
