The sound of Dupont
There is one thing that clearly distinguishes any other lighter Dupont and sound. The "ping" Dupont is something that immediately highlights the wearer. In this video you will appreciate.
What causes it? When the Ligne 2 a design flaw (yes, a failure) made there is more friction between two moving parts of the top of what was planned was designed. The fact is that customers liked both the resulting sound has since tried to keep this "ping" so characteristic.
Every now have to change the protector of the burner, so it is recommended to buy official spare parts. On the other hand, while butane can be recharged with a common charger, the Dupont house also recommends their own officers chargers.
It is also advisable to be careful when handling the valve on the bottom that regulates the intensity of the flame.
