Yes it works better if refill bottle is upside down, and you need too press hard since most lighters are cheap and have poor seals.

You don't have to, but it usually works better that way. That's assuming the lighter is designed to be refillable.

I have a model 35002 triple torch Colibri gear lighter and I need instructions on how to refill it with butane.


There is a small nipple on the bottom of the lighter. That is where you put the canister on to refill.

How do I refill a "Ready Aim Fire" propane lighter?


There should be a small fitting/nozzle on the bottom of the lighter. If you pick up a can of compressed butane (big brand is Ronson) you can refill it with that. All you have to do is position the can nozzle onto the lighter fitting and an press for about 10 seconds. It will then be full. Lighters won't always work right away while it is cold. Warm it up in your hands if you need it right away.

Refilling a dunhill lighter


All rechargeable lighters have a refilling nozzle (usually at the bottom of lighter).
All the good quality gas refill cans have the nozzle adapters inside sovering cup.
Brake off the nozzle adapters off the cup and try to fit them onto lighters refilling nozzle.
When found the best fit adapter, put it onto gas refill cans nozzle and holding the lighter and can upside down connect all nozzles together and push together.
As these nozzles are made for mass production lighters, tey do not fit perfect and some gas leak will occure.
Anyway- few seconds will be enough to refill any lighter.
In case if your lighter do not refill by explained action, the refill nozzle in your lighter is damaged or faulty.
Hope it does help.

Do not forget to rate, please.

Dunill lighter - how do I fill it with butane?


  1. Ignore that other load of tosh.
  2. Do not refill your lighter immediately after using it. You should allow enough time for the lighter to cool off.
  3. The flame height adjuster on the bottom of the lighter should be set to minimum by turning CLOCKWISE with a small screw driver. The smaller, usually Phillips head, screw is for dismantling the lighter and should not be touched. The adjusting screw is a larger screw with a standard (slot) head. Some lighters come with a key to turn the adjusting screw. Some models have an adjusting wheel that requires no screwdriver. Please DO NOT FORCE the adjusting screw. If it is hard to turn in one direction this most likely means that the adjustment screw is already at the (-) or (+) limit. Try turning the other direction.
  4. Push the refilling valve with a screwdriver to let out the air inside until no hissing sound is heard. Hold the lighter away from your face. Air inside the fuel tank prevents butane gas from being injected into the tank and causes the lighter to malfunction.
  5. ALWAYS refill the lighter in an upside down position to avoid injecting air into the lighter.
  6. Shake the butane gas refill can, press the stem of the refill can directly onto the refill valve on the bottom of the lighter. Keep them in a straight position and let the gas go into the lighter for about 5 seconds. Repeat for a shorter period if needed.
  7. Allow 3-4 minutes to let gas and lighter components reach room temperature.
  8. Turn the flame adjuster counter clockwise to reach the desired flame height.
  9. Hold the lighter away from your face and body and ignite it carefully. If there is no flame, repeat the refilling process.

  10. If you experience gas leakage with a hissing sound while refilling the lighter, either you are not holding the lighter and gas can in a straight position or the stem of the gas can is not suitable for the lighter. In this case you need to use an adaptor which is usually supplied with the gas can.
  11. Premium butane is required to ensure optimum performance of your lighter. Lighters require the cleanest butane available at a pressure of 45 psi. Recommended using Premium Triple Refined Butane Gas that are packaged in 10-13 oz. cans with a metal fill tip nozzle. Non-premium butane with plastic fill tip nozzles are not recommended as they may cause inconsistent ignition and performance. Impurity of the gas can cause clogging of the burner valve or malfunctioning.

    WARNING: PLEASE, ALWAYS KEEP YOUR LIGHTER AWAY FROM THE REACH OF CHILDREN. USE COMMON SENSE IN HANDLING YOUR LIGHTER.

    Troubleshooting: If you are having problems with your lighter, make sure that:

    You are holding the lighter upside down while refilling. If you did not hold the lighter upside down, there will be air inside the butane tank. You will need to let the air out and try refilling again.

    The flame height is properly adjusted.

    You are not using cheap or incorrect fuel.

    There is no dirt or debris in the lighter. Try blowing forcefully into the top part of the unlit lighter.
