Zippo Logo – Zippo is a lighter created by George G. Blaisdell in the year 1932 , in Bradford , Pennsylvania . Often the design of the lighters Zippo is rectangular with a hinged top cover. Unlike plastics that are disposable lighters, Zippo lighters are refillable with a special gas mainly containing naphtha, however function equally with any flammable liquid such as gasoline , kerosene , etc., although this will cause that discards waste in the form of smoke and the flame is not homogeneous.
Zippo lighters gained popularity as windproof staying lit even in adverse weather. They became popular in the United States military , especially during the Second World War and the Vietnam War , where all lighters produced by Mark joined the ‘war effort’. They are also known to have a lifetime warranty: if a Zippo lighter breaks, no matter how old or how many owners have had, the company will replace it or fix it for free. The only part of the lighter does not guarantee the finish of the outer casing.
The way we are built that makes it very difficult to extinguish the flame by blowing or moving. The proper way to turn off the cigarette lighter is to close the top cover, which deprives the flame of oxygen. Closing the lid quickly produces a loud and easily recognizable sound of ‘Click’ by which these lighters are known. Currently the prices of these lighters range between $ 12.95 and $ 85.00 U.S. dollars , depending on how rare and how materials have been used in developing the product. The highest price paid by one of them was U.S. $ 18.000 in a fair bidding of Tokyo .
