No.1 Butane gas is sprayed back while refilling.
The inlet valve of most Sarome butane gas lighters is equipped with an exhaust system for efficient refilling at low temperatures. Therefore, butane spray back will occur when gas tank is full. Read "How to refill fuel" in Support for further details.
No.2 What kind of butane gas I have to use for refilling my Sarome lighter?
We highly recommend you to use Sarome butane gas. Impure butane gas will clog up your lighter and other brands of butane gas with unknown pressures will affect the performance of the lighter.

A lighter consists of many precision parts and it must be used with the utmost care. When a lighter has been dropped, component parts may damage which causes misfire. Please return for service.
I think my lighter is gas leaking?
When a lighter is dropped or punctured, packing inside gas tank or inlet valve may probably damage and gas leakage is occurred. When lighter makes hissing sound, do not attempt to ignite but return for service.
What should I do when I want to keep lighter un-used for a long time?
