After over a decade on the market, S.T.Dupont has redesigned its smallest and most affordable lighter, the miniJet.
The miniJet 2.0 features a simplified ignition mechanism that S.T.Dupont says improves the flame and longer sides to help the lighter better through wear and tear.
S.T.Dupont says the new version is good for 20,000 lights. While the miniJet and miniJet 2.0 are the same shape and price, an easy way to tell the difference is the air inlet in the center of the body, now shaped like a flame as opposed to a horizontal line on the original.
The miniJet and its larger brother, the maxiJet, are known for their single side-squeeze action ignitions. S.T.Dupont introduced the original miniJet in 2007.
It will be offered in 11 colors on debut with prices starting at $150, the same base price as the original miniJet.
Davidoff of Geneva USA, which distributes S.T.Dupont in the U.S., says the miniJet 2.0 will begin shipping on July 10.
