How to Refill a Cartier Butane Lighter

Mikhail Polenin

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.
