A Zippo lighter is a refillable lighter manufactured by Zippo Manufacturing Company. Zippo lighters are refillable lighters, that burn from a wick. Zippo lighters gained popularity as "windproof" lighters, able to stay lit in harsh weather, due to the design of the windscreen and adequate rate of fuel delivery. Some Zippo lighters are primarily seen as a collectable rather than an everyday lighter. Zippo lighters come in a wide variety of styles and designs, many being vintage or limited edition.
