Bit of a specialist deal, cheaper with revolut/Monzo.


I got this to change a couple radiators and for sous vide (less risk of making meat taste of gas with this). It has been great and takes gas bottles from tools ration etc. On a side note the difference between MAPP and propane is around 200deg so may not be worth there premium


I understand you can get it almost (I understand around 45) this cheap at builder merchants if they play ball but but I wasn't having any luck.

Good torch but I prefer the small nozzle as it gives me more control. If I was doing a lot of 28mm+ I would be more likely to use this one. Very good price.
will they ship uk for this price?
Or get a copy for £29.99... ebay.co.uk/itm…8PK
Seems like you can't change the nozzle like the cheap model I have.
Can't see the shipping costs, imagine they might be a bit much?

This looks like it includes shipping. It doesn't however inc any vat or admin fee if caught by customs.

On my shipping it said vat and customs paid so either Amazon are mis labeling or it's not due.... if anything is due Amazon charge it prior to shipping so you should be fine

But it's only 7£ less? This has the brand, changeable tips, lifetime warranty and Amazon cover (even if it is US)... all for copies but if it's a substantial saving

Excellent timing as my Super Fire 2 ignition has become intermittent.
Anyone know the difference between this and a Super Fire 2??

From my research they are exactly the same just a different badge on them for different markets. Threads state they are from the same factory and no different, I have briefly used both and can't see a difference either.

I am no expert this is based on research as I was looking at getting the Super Fire 2 and ended up with this instead.

The sure fire 2 seem loads more expensive, so I assumed there would be a difference. Thanks.
