S.T. Dupont MaxiJet Fluo Green – Accessory Review

The MaxiJet is one of S.T. Dupont’s single jet-flame lighters.  The design of the MaxiJet has a contemporary look, highlighted by its ergonomic, curved design. There is also a smaller version known as the MiniJet, a slimmer version known as Slim 7, and a wider single-flame option known as MegaJet.  The MaxiJet, MiniJet, and Slim 7 are three lighters that are a part of the Fluo Collection.

Regarding the lighter itself, the Fluo Collection ones are functionally the same as the core line offerings.


Dimensions: 2.5 x 1.5 x 0.47 inches
Weight: 2.26 ounces
Finish: Matte Black/Green Lacquer
Price: $265.00/SRP


The lighter itself has mostly a black matte finish.  The fluorescent finish is on the side squeeze ignition mechanism.

The other side of the unit features a fuel window.

The top of the unit has a closed aperture, through which the flame comes out when the lighter is ignited.


Squeezing the side ignition mechanism ignites the MaxiJet lighter. The squeeze opens the aperture at the top of the lighter, and the flame is released. At the time the aperture opens, there is a distinct click, as demonstrated in the video below.

The lighter has a safety mechanism that prevents the aperture from opening and the flame from being released when it is held upside down.

The bottom of the unit contains a mechanism to refill the lighter with butane. Adjusting the height of the flame is done by using a flat-head screwdriver.


Like any S.T. Dupont lighter, this one has excellent quality construction and feels very well-made. The curvature on each side of the MaxiJet gives this lighter a nice ergonomic feel, and the matte finish enhances this feel.

Igniting this lighter couldn’t be easier – you simply squeeze the sides while the lighter is held straight up. The flame is quite precise when used. The safety mechanism works as long as the flame has not been released. If you take the lighter, ignite it, and then turn it upside down while the flame is in action, the safety mechanism will not work.

While S.T. Dupont has said the MaxiJet is wind-resistant, I’m unsure how resistant it is. I put this lighter in front of a fan and room air conditioner, and the flame had a tough time keeping intact.

I like the MaxiJet’s closed aperture. It could be a little difficult to clean if dirt gets under the opening, but in general, I find the closed aperture has more positives than negatives.

Refilling the MaxiJet is also quite simple. The fuel valve is located at the bottom of the lighter. I refilled the lighter with S.T. Dupont fuel with multiple successive pressures of three seconds. Once filled, I got about nine cigars use from a fuel tank—this was a mix of small and large cigars that required different amounts of touch-ups and re-lights.

As for the butane for the MaxiJet, S.T. Dupont recommends using their butane for compatibility and optimum performance. I did not attempt to deviate from S.T. Dupont’s recommendations here.

I’m not a big fan of fuel windows because they are generally hard to view. In the case of the MaxiJet, this is one of the better ones I have seen on a lighter. The flame adjuster does require a screwdriver.  The direction the flame adjuster needs to be rotated is clearly marked. Some lighters do not denote this well.


For about one month, the S.T. Dupont MaxiJet Fluo Collection Green lighter was used daily. During this period, the lighter was durable and performed consistently. The unit not only has a nice look and feel, but it’s clear this is a high-quality lighter. Most importantly, the unit is easy to operate and flawless. I would like a bit more fuel capacity, but it’s a nice tradeoff for the small size.

The Fluorescent Green color combined with the matte finish works great. It gives the lighter a sleek and very modern feel to it.

In terms of the price point, this is a $265.00 lighter. While S.T. Dupont makes lighters in a much higher price range, I would still put this unit in the same category as Rolex watches. I believe S.T. Dupont makes some of the best lighters in the industry. If you are looking for a luxury item that excels in use and performance, the S.T. Dupont MaxiJet Fluo Collection Green gets an easy Buy recommendation.
