    Default Ronson Tech Torch (Micro Torch) Review

    What: Ronson Tech Torch (Micro Torch)
    Price: $~29
    Place: Wal-Mart



    I picked it up at my local Wal-Mart near the plumbing/lighting section.

    I filled it up with some Vector butane. I didn't bother using the Ronson butane it came with. The tank holds over 20g of fuel. So this bastard will last a long time between refills.

    It's a well built torch. It fires up every time. It has a flame adjuster and a heat adjuster. It also has a button to lock the trigger once you fire.

    It also comes with the instructional manual and 2 soldering tips.

    The only gripes I have about it is that the trigger is short & smooth. I wish it was longer and textured to provide better grip.


















    Verdict:

    I've had it for over a year and it's still kicking ass . If it's anything like its little brother, it should be a very reliable piece of equipment. It's priced in the same price range as most micro torches online and on cigar websites ($20-$30 range).

    I like the soft flame,,,bet it would last a couple of years with a full tank and just using the soft flame approach. Methinks I might have to get one.
    A mind is like a parachute. It works best when open.

    Nothing wrong with the Ronson. I just have a huge bottle of Vector butane.


    I don't know the exact dimensions, but I've included pics of the torch in hand for comparison.
