Carlos, if you are talking about the inserts that convert your zippo into a torch lighter for cigars I have and it works great. I think I paid around $12 for it at the local B&M.

There is three versions I think. One is a Zippo and it's a real torch. The other is two versions of the same insert and one is set up as a pipe lighter. Both have a soft flame like the Old Boy. They are called Thunderbird. Let me go looking for the maker name.

Vector is the maker. Here is a link.

Is this the one you have Mike?

I haven't used the thunderbird insert but I do have one of the Zippo Pipe Lighters and I really like it. Seems to work extremely well but it does seem to use more fuel than the normal Zippo insert.

I have the Thunderbird pipe lighter insert. I really like it, its reliable, and has a good flame. One suggestion though would be for them to move the gas valve. when you open the zippo it starts feeding gas, this can really waste alot if you are someone who will click it open and closed. Other than that the best twelve bucks ive spent in a while.
