How to Refill a Cartier Butane Lighter

Cartier produces very fine lighters of a unique design, sometimes even from precious metals. Cartier butane lighters have valve caps on top of the refill sockets to protect the valve from dust and other environmental factors that might degrade its quality and ability to keep pressurized gas inside. Do not use any other gas but butane to refill a Cartier lighter.

  1. Take a flat-head screwdriver and remove the valve cap with the large groove in it.

  2. Flip your Cartier lighter upside down and remove the cap from your fluid canister.

  3. Place the gas canister so the nozzle faces down and press onto the Cartier lighter's exposed fill valve. Replace the valve cap after you finish.


  • Always hold your lighter upside down while you refill it. Refilling your lighter in another angle might spill gas, which proves hazardous near heat-emitting objects and electrical appliances.
  • Keep your lighter canister out of reach of children. Butane gas has very strong neurotic effects that can damage a person's health.
