I'm surprised at the reviews elsewhere complaining about the poor quality. Either they got duds, or I got lucky. As discussed elsewhere, if you're complaining about it not working at 10K ft, complain to a physicist or chemist, and let them explain what's going on. My Helios works great. What do I like about it? Lights every time. Burns hot. Cap opens all the way. I'd probably buy the $15 tall skinny one some other company makes, but the cap only goes 90 degrees. Deal killer. I wish it was smaller, though. The rubber edging doesn't seem to serve any useful purpose, and it makes it bulkier. I wish it was metal, because I'm often melting the ends of ropes and 550 cord, and I'd like to press the end against a piece of metal when I'm done to flatten the melted cord. Sorry to those that have had bad luck. I slipped mine to my brother at his wedding (he had to use it to light the uncooperative unity candle), and I'm buying another one now -- that's how I found these reviews. I wish there was a decent competitor on the market, but there doesn't seem to be.
