I'll agree with Losbuenos so far as that a lantern lighter isn't a very good ignition source, except for a *very* simple hairspray combustion. A piezo is a step up, but if you're going to spend the $12 on a piezo, spend $6 more and get a taser. You can get a taser for $18 including shipping from www.preventsecurity.com . It'll last forever, and nothing lights up propane like 100,000 volts....

Peace,
Pete Zaria.
