Importing lighters from China
Lighters are a new type of daily products that developed rapidly in China in the 1990s. At first, the lighter was only used to light cigarettes, candles, paper, etc., but as people in Europe, the United States and pursuing outdoor sports, camping and other leisure lifestyles continue to upgrade, The use of lighters has gradually increased. has expanded, such as camping, barbecue, gas stove for lighting and other purposes, consumption has also increased rapidly. A lot of lighters are imported from China
After matches, lighters became popular and used as a means of ignition for hundreds of years. They are usually divided into three categories: metal lighters, plastic electronic lighters, and plastic grinding wheel lighters (abbreviated as "grinding wheels"). According to statistics, the annual global demand for lighters is about 20 billion, of which more than 95% are plastic lighters.
China has become the largest lighter production base in the world. The annual production of lighters accounts for more than 2/3 of the world's total sales. With the rapid development of the market economy, the export volume of lighters in China is increasing day by day, and the amount of lighters in a city with a population of one million people is very high. The city consumes 700,000 lighters every month. China is the largest consumer of lighters in the world with an annual demand of about 9 billion lighters

Lighter manufacturing is an entrepreneurial industry, and China has become the world's largest manufacturing base and export base. The world's lighter production center has been moved to China. China has obvious labor cost advantages. Every year, more than 15 billion lighters are produced in China, of which more than 6 billion lighters are exported. A relatively complete plastic lighter industrial group has been formed including the supply of raw materials, component production and product assembly. The most important production bases are Ningbo (mainly producing plastic electronic lighters), Guangdong (mainly producing plastic rotary lighters) and Wenzhou (mainly producing metal lighters). However, the industry is very competitive and has a high degree of marketing
There are more than 1,000 domestic manufacturers of domestic lighters, and there are about 30 manufacturers with a production capacity of more than 100 million. There is currently no government authority or a national industry association. In 2005, Ningbo Lighter was founded. Industry Association 70% of the world's lighter production comes from China, which has become the main exporter of lighters.
Almost all lighters in the world are imported from China

What is a lighter?
A lighter is a small fire device. Mainly used for making fire, smoking, but also for cooking and other fire. The main components of the lighter are the ignition mechanism and the gas storage box. When the ignition mechanism in the lighter operates, it transfers the spark to the gas zone to ignite the gas. The ignition mechanism is the most active part of lighter evolution and also the most complicated part. According to the characteristics of the ignition mechanism, lighters can be divided into 6 types: steel wheel lighters, piezoelectric ceramic lighters, magnetic induction lighters, battery lighters, solar lighters, and microcomputer lighters.
The gas used by the lighter is a flammable gas. In the early days, gasoline was used. Today, butane, propane and liquid gas are mostly used. After pressing, they are filled into the air storage tank, and when they are released into the air, they absorb heat and evaporate quickly, and expand quickly, making them easy. Early lighters were derived from flannel needles. When the trigger is pulled by a spring, a spark is generated on the flap and ignites the dry leaves. It can be said that the origin of modern lighters is the tinder box of Europe in the 16th century and the tin box of the same name. Both of them work on the same principle and both use a sparking iron to ignite the sparks to ignite the fire. The difference is that the fire iron from the tinder box is tied to a chain on one side, while the fire iron box is completely integrated.
How to buy lighters from China
Everyone who smokes cannot live without a lighter
Types of lighters can be divided into cotton lighters, gas lighters and electronic lighters from the point of view of fuel and structural characteristics. Lighter Cotton Oil: Uses gasoline as fuel, and ignites calcium steel wheels. This type of lighter is obsolete
Gas lighter: using liquid butane gas as fuel, using friction steel friction calcium carbide as an ignition source, the flame size can be adjusted
Electronic lighter: using two pieces of piezoelectric ceramics and a carbon film resistor, through a mechanical structure, a certain pressure is applied, so that after the two ceramics are touched, they emit a spark to ignite butane gas . This is a fairly advanced lighter. When buying a lighter, first choose the types of lighters you like, and then you can choose according to the following requirements. The electrical part should be bright and clean in color, and the alumina layer should not be white, have serious stains and peeling. The fuel tank should not leak. The flame adjustment and bottom base adjustment should be flexible and control the flame. In addition, looking for whether the design of its appearance is exquisite and unique, you should pay more attention to the inspection of several aspects:
Chinese lighters are mainly exported to the following countries: Japan, the United States, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France, South Korea, Taiwan, Italy, Austria, Brazil, Hong Kong, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Australia, the Netherlands,
Lighter imported from China: Instructions for safe use: The lighter is just a lighter, not a toy
The first step for many friends to get a gas lighter is to open a fire test. In fact, the correct way is to hold the lighter in your hand for at least 30 seconds. The reason is that the lighter is transported and stored, and the air room temperature is sure to be the ambient temperature. Hold for a long time so that the evaporation process of the liquid reduces the adverse effects caused by the temperature difference, so that the combustion is smoother; Second, don't go on and on, lighters are not toys, gas fires require process
Lighter is a consumable thing, so pay attention to maintenance! Flint gas lighters require cleaning the ignition port regularly. This is because the dust caused by the friction of the flint will fall around the ignition port. The spark port of most gas engines is very fragile and can only be blocked once; In addition, the combustion gas engine should not be cleaned with liquid, do not try to repair it yourself! The structure of the gas part is very complicated, especially because many parts are small without special tools, they can't be installed after disassembly Adjust the temperature flame to refer to the instructions exactly! Clean gas must be used! It is recommended to use special gas cylinders. Although special gas cylinders are also sold as fakes, big cities are generally guaranteed. If you want to use regular gas cylinders, you can clean them. The simple way is to squeeze the mouth of the cylinder before inflating. Once, if it is odorless, it means the gas is good, here is a special reminder, you can't smell it directly, don't bring the lighter directly to your eyes and body, the lighter has a pressurized tank. which can cause burns to the eyes or body. Do not place the lighter in direct sunlight
Lighters imported from China generally fall into the following categories
Lighter: There is a special manual igniter. This fuel consists of petrochemicals and is commonly used to light cigarettes, pipes and other smoking containers. It can also be used to light paper, oil rope, candles, lanterns or other flammable materials
Note: The lighter cannot be used as a candle, flashlight or other items that burn for a long time.
Liquid gas lighter: This type of lighter has an obvious outlet pipe and its internal fuel composition is liquid hydrocarbons such as hexane. The standard vapor pressure is 24°C and cannot exceed 34.5 kPa.
Gas lighter: propane, its standard pressure is 24 degrees Celsius, more than 104 kPa.
Post-mix lighter: This type of gas lighter mixes and burns air and fuel after ignition.
Mixed front lighters: the fuel gas of these types of gas lighters is mixed with air before burning.
Disposable lighter: This type of lighter is filled with fuel during production and cannot be recharged.
Rechargeable lighter: This type of lighter can be charged with an external gas tank or placed in a new fuel tank.
Adjustable Lighter: This type of lighter provides a device that can freely adjust the height of the flame.
Non-adjustable lighter: This type of lighter does not provide a means of adjusting the height of the flame and the burning height is predetermined by the manufacturer.
Auto-Adjustable Tube Lighter: This type of lighter provides a device that can automatically increase the height of the flame from vertical to tilted. This device is designed for pipes.
Self-extinguishing lighter: This type of lighter requires continuous purposeful and active action to maintain the flame after ignition. After stopping the operation, the flame is automatically extinguished.
Non-self-extinguishing lighters: This type of lighter does not require intentional or active action to maintain the flame, but requires action to extinguish the flame.
Flame Height: The linear distance from the shield head to the top of the visible flame. If there is no shield, it refers to the linear distance from the end of the exposed wick or top of the airbox vent to the top of the visible flame.
Windshield: Fully or partially enclose the gas lighter gas box valve or liquid lighter gas tube.
Gas Tank Valve: The lighter controls the gas release component.
Outlet: the place where the fuel gas is released.
Different flame heights under continuous burning conditions
Continuous Spontaneous Combustion: Unintended actions cause flames to spread, such as falling, causing ignition, and continuous burning.
Explosion, splash fire: is the phenomenon of droplet burning in which the unconcentrated liquid gas jumps from the gas lighter and separates from the main flame.
Flame: Visible or slightly dim under normal lighting conditions and produces heat, often associated with glowing fuel combustion . Ignition: Use the lighter's internal ignition and fuel release system to ignite the flame in a specific manner.
