Me myself, I HATE Zippo lighters. I've actually been using the same Bic lighter for almost a year now. You must just have bad luck.

Zippos also come with a lifetime warranty, so if anything needs to be changed out you mail it back to them and they fix it.

I've had quite a few over the years. Got to be geniune Zippo. You get what you pay for, for sure. My favorite is the "Armor" version of the brass one. 1.5 x'* thicker metal and has a nice heavy feel to it.

Bought this Bic at a gas station in Crestview, FL in October of 2010.

Like I said, if y'all are having problems with these kinds of lighters it'* 1) your fault because you're too hard on it. or 2) you have shitty luck.
