Wanted to compare the old standard Bic with the Clipper lighter. On the one hand, we have the Bic. And on the other, the Clipper. Am I being too corny? IMG_0130 by Hanzo posted Jul 18, 2017 at 17:03 How are they similar? Both are lightweight and inexpensive. Both can be considered disposable. Both light easily with a non-adjustable flame. Both are fine with my dominant hand, so to really see how they feel, I used my non-dominant hand. Not sure if that is a fair test. For most things, I am ambidextrous. Tried it without and with gloves.

The Bic body is plastic, while the Clipper is nylon. So the plastic will burn while the nylon is more heat resistant. After running through the tests, the Bic was warmer to the touch. My disclaimer is this is a small sample size. The Bic's shape is more uniform, making mods like wrapping duct tape around it more easy. The Clipper is round but with a protuberance for the flint striker, making it not uniform in shape. The Bic's striker wheel is round and has a child safety (which is easily removed). The Clipper's striking wheel is more squared off with no child safety. So with gloves on my non-dominant hand, the Clipper is easier to light. The Bic is not refillable, making it truly disposable. The Clipper is refillable, so it could be not disposable. IMG_0138 by Hanzo posted Jul 18, 2017 at 17:04 I do not know if you can change the flint in the Bic, but you can with the Clipper. Not only that, the flint and striker is removable so you could use it like a Spark-lite.
