Reuse an Extended-Reach (Disposable) BIC Lighter

Reuse an Extended-Reach (Disposable) BIC Lighter
There’s not much to it, but this video demonstrates a trick I use to refill long-handled, disposable lighters. Depending on where you live, this might save a few bucks over buying a new one and may even make you the hero at your next BBQ.

  1. Great idea just not easy as you showed it and I would just recommend throw it away. Or best yet buy re-fillable. Tried changing these just not work. Frustrating and waste of time.

  2. Boredom Therapy would like to feature this video on our website which has an audience of millions each day. Can you get back to me at when you have a moment? Thanks!

  3. Got a 4 years old BBQ lighter, rarely used it but it still works. Any danger of keeping a lighter around that old? And where do you guys store it? The BBQ lighter I do see some sticky dried liquid around the push button area, maybe fuel leaking?

  4. Thanks for this information. The old Bic has died on me, so I will have a crack at this to keep the old one kicking along for longer.


    When opening the long lighter, avoid opening up the casing near the trigger section. That portion contains several moving parts that are difficult to resemble. So, BE CAREFUL and only open the lighter up enough to extract the fuel unit.

  6. I'm so late to watching and commenting on this video, but I have to comment anyway. This is something that bugs me so much! They're so heavy duty made that it doesn't make sense that they're not made to be refilled. I hat throwing them away and It's bad for the environment.

  7. Only after spending £2.99 on a Bic megalighter, couldn't believe it says non refillable, most of my reason for buying it was to refill,Bic what are you playing at???
