Got a z-plus insert for zippo from countycomm( great service and very happy with 99% of the stuff I get from them)

Not very happy with this. hard to fil and flame does not shut off when you release the button

I would also not rely on any type of piezo-ignition lighter that does not have water-resistant seals on them (including this one). Zippo cases are not meant to keep out water, and piezo piles don't like getting wet.

Three things about the care and feeding of these sort of lighters:
1) Make sure that you are using the correct adaptor.
2) Fill at a 45 degree angle or vertically with the can uppermost.
3) Don't turn the lighter up too high. What your seeing is gas coming through the feed pipe from the reservoir under pressure. The higher the pressure, the longer it takes to shut down. So dial the regulator screw on the bottom down a touch. That should cure the problem.
