You can only refill it if it has a refill nozzle. Look on the bottom, if you see a little brass colored ring with a tiny nozzle inside, you can refill it. Must be the coolest bic in the world.

You don't.
That's the major selling point of a "disposable" lighter. You use it. It quits working. You shake it. Nothing happens. You toss it, and buy another one for a buck.

Personally...I'm not big on "throw away". I use a Zippo.

When I was young I would take a few "disposable" lighters and go out to the desert where I set a small fire in a dry stone riverbed. I would set the lighters down next to the fire, go about 20 yards away and shoot them.

:shrug: I used to refill them with the multifill tipped butane refill cans.

find one that fits the nozzle of the lighter, open the valve by pressing the button, and push the can down.

I dunno how much it ever refilled it, but I do know I had one bic lighter for quite some time

Bic lighters are refillable, you just need to get the right nozzle attached to the canister. Although I must say I'm rather puzzled as to why you want to refill one of these given that it costs very little to buy a brand new one. What colour is the lighter? Does it have some kind of rare funky design?

You can make any disposable lighter refillable. All you need is a refill valve from a old refillable lighter, a small drill bit and some two part epoxy.

I usually use the piezoelectric lighters because eventually the flint in Bic lighters will wear down but they last quite a while as the flint is quite long.

You just drill a hole in the bottom and glue in the valve with the two part epoxy, I've done it many times.

refillable lighters

Hello all,

I too have and still do refill BIC lighters.

You first need to push the pin on the bottom of the lighter in. (too hard to pull out the pin so you'll hear the pin rattle a bit.)

Using an butane refill canister, choose the tip that is the widest to cover the diameter of the hole on the bootom. The smaller tips just waste your butane, so wider is better.

hold the butane canister and tip against the refill hole on the bottom but lean over ensuring the butane comes out instead just the gas/air.

You can feel the lighter become heavier from the filling of butane, fill as much as your comforatble with. ( Don't be stupid and try to fill it completely be rational)

Once filled, quickly put your finger over the hole to prevent butane from flow out of the lilghter.

Apply push pin or tac into hole.

Make sure that it's not leaking, I usually take it over to the sink and fill my palm or small cup with water, submerge the bottom of the lighter (NOT THE WHOLE DANG LIGHTER). Just the bottom and look for tiny air bubbles.

No bubbles= no leak..

That's all folks.

Might I add, that if you have children please don't leave a lighter or matches where they can reach them, Protect our children don't be a dumb ass and leave a modified lighter, the would probably try to pull the tac out.


(BE CAREFUL)


happy lighting

The simplest way: go to store, purchase a new Bic lighter, enjoy.

They are called disposable because they are meant to be disposed of when they are empty. A can of fluid is the same price as a new lighter. If buying a new lighter is that much of a problem, stop smoking and save the money!!

Toss it, in the trash! Then buy another. They are designed to be disposable, not refilable. Could be dangerous to refill and/or cause injury. Ask; what price this lighter?

Have you ever seen a leaking lighter ignite inside somebody's pocket? Don't be stupid. Buy a new lighter and cast the old one in acrylic resin and put it on the mantle.

what someone else said about them blowing up in your pocket is so true, it is not something you would want to happen, believe me.

before you throw that lighter away, you can get one last glorious shower of sparks from the unimaginably long flint inside that thing - as long as you have another lighter, too.

Take the metal bit on the top off, then grab onto the spark wheel, and carefully pull it out, making sure not to let the flint go shooting across the room - it's under a ton of pressure.

Now, taketh yon flint and the spring underneath, and stretch the spring out a bit to lengthen it before wrapping it securely around the flint. Give it a couple wraps, then twist the two ends together well - yeh don't want the flint sliding around. Now, go to a place with a hard, fireproof floor or wall - brick, concrete, asphalt... you get the picture.

Hold the spring from the very end, away from yourself. Using another lighter, or a torch if you have one, heat the flint until it glows bright orange throughout.... then throw it at the ground/wall and beholdeth! A huge shower of sparks, which will make you want to do it again and again! Time to save those flints....

these tweakers i used to hang out with once removed the pin and some of the surrounding plastic out of a refillable lighter and placed it into a bic.

i guess if you smoke enough meth, and you can figure out how to do anything.

I am new here and I only registered to post a reply here. There is a way to refill a bic lighter if you are very determined (or just hate spending money on new ones)

You need the following items.
Empty Bic lighter (free and found lying on the ground all the time)
A torch lighter with a brass refill nozzle ($5.99 max at any gas station)
silicone ($1.99 at auto parts store) [can substitute JB weld]
Drill bit as big as the refill nozzle ($3.99 hardware store) [can substitute x-acto knife if you have about an hour to spare]
Flat headed screw driver (if you can't find one, chances are you should be worrying about bigger and better things)

-Discharge the gas from the torch lighter by pressing the small metal nozzle in the middle of the refill nozzle.
-unscrew it and take it out
*if the tube going into the lighter is bigger than an inch cut it down to about an inch
-make sure ALL the gas is out of the bic - as in try to light it about 10 times no more flame is present your good to go
-drill out the round hole in the bottom of the bic (your refill nozzle shouldn't be any bigger than that round hole preferrably the nozzle should be a hair bigger for good fit)
-put silicone around the threads of the nozzle
-insert into bic and screw in very tight BUT not too tight; too tight and you'll crack the bottom piece and your back to step one
-let the silicone dry and apply more to around the outside of the nozzle as needed for an air tight seal
-fill with butane
-enjoy

One problem....

If you're going to spend six bucks on a torch lighter why not just use it?!

if you have a small hand held torch lighter that no longer works or you dont use, take it apart and use the section where you refill it with butane. now take the bic you want to keep for ever flip it upside down looking at the botton of lighter there is a circle that is indented to the right or left side of the circle take someting metal sharp and is no bigger round than the piece you took out of the torch lighter. heat it up and stick STRAIGHT it through the bottom of the bic lighter until you feel that it has gone completely through the bottom. now take the piece from the torch lighter place it in the hole you just made make sure its not gonna fall easily inside the lighter. now take some super glue and run a bead all the way around the piece to be installed slide it the rest of the way in and run one more bead where the two pieces come togeather. keep held up side down until glue drys. dont tilt the lighter glue will run and you wont be able to fill it up. to much glue and it takes forever to dry. to big of a hole and lighter will leak butane. once completely dry put some butane in the lighter hold it close to your ear so you can hear if it is leaking. if its not leaking fill it the rest of the way up and there you go the bic refillable lighter. I would practice this on other bic lighters that your not attached to before the one that you actually want to keep. hope it works and good luck.

Hello there fellow web dewds. I am writing to you as I cannot create and account because my email service is apparently full of FAIL and LAME! How ever I was google searching today on how to easily remove the pin from a Bic lighter to refill it to keep my lazy butt at my computer and not have to go out. Well low and behold I found your site with detailed instructions. So I figured I register and say thanks! But I cannot. And thats ok because I never use forums anymore but I would like you to at least see the job I did and yes, this way does work. Here is the link to the picture on my facebook...



And just to make it easier on you should you decide to post that picture here is the thread on your forums I am refering to...

Thanks again for the forum full of RAD and REALLY COOL!

Like the guy said in the first place it's a lighter he and his girlfriend are attached to it has sentimental value to them. Which is the same reason I looked for an answer to this question. Plus how many of you have an orange hooters lighter from a very special visit to Vegas with a loved one.

---------- Post added at 07:04 AM ---------- Previous post was at 06:51 AM ----------

Also I would like to add, although it may seem pointless to go through the trouble when bic lighters are only about 2 bucks, but how much do you smoke and use a lighter? If you're like me, I go through one in about a week if I don't lose it or get pocket jacked by then, but that's roughly 50 lighters a year, give or take, and to me that's just a whole lot of uneasily recyclable plastic waste that goes into our landfills. I even made an art project solely out of used bic lighters once, it was pretty awesome, haha, irrelevant to this, but I thought it was interesting.

I've often wondered how to do this myself and I have a couple bic disposables in my possession that I wouldn't mind keeping around. Good questipn Finley.

This thread reminds me of something I notice a lot on message boards or Q&A sites and can't figure out the rationale behind. What is the thought process behind someone answering a question such as the OP's with an answer like "Buy another one, it's called <u>disposable</u> for a reason" and feel that they're helping. I see this a lot on threads where someone says, "I smoked/snorted/ate [random chemical/substance that they aren't supposed to consume] and have a drug test coming up. Is there anything I can do to speed up the excretion of the metabolites?" and the never-ending flood of "don't do drugs you idiot! That's the only way to pass the UA" come in, even when people can see that the person posting directly before them posted the exact same thing.

You see, using this thread as an example, isn't it painfully obvious that buying another lighter isn't a solution to the problem? He could buy every lighter in the world, and yet the lighter he considers special and worth keeping will continue to remain empty. Same goes for the guy who knew he had a drug test hanging over his head but still went on the cocaine binge. The time for "not doing drugs" has obviously come and gone. Why post redundant, uninformative responses?

Anyone have a clue to this? And "if it bothers you that much, don't read the replies" won't help because again, not only has that opportunity slipped away but it's also irrational because i'm not psychic.
