Dangerous - DO NOT BUY,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)

I cannot stress enough - DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT - It is dangerous
Mine developed a fault the second time I refilled it. I turned it on and hit the button to light it and then I was holding a fireball. I was holding it away from my face at about waist level and the resultant fireball was big enough to burn my eyebrows, beard, eyelashes and hair.
Luckily I didn't burn anything else as I instinctively shook it which put out the flames. I have been very careful not to say it exploded as it didnt. Closer examination revealed that the seal between the middle plastic fake metal section and top plastic section had broken, so the gas leaked out and when I hit the ignighter the massive amount of gas leaking out all went up at once.
I noticed it was pretty cheap looking when I got it and was very plasticky. I think it's fair enough to say that this is one to avoid. Go with something a bit pricier and more well built.
I have kept it so if anyone from amazon wants to get in touch I'll gladly send it on for inspection so that this dangerous product can be withdrawn from sale.
