What does anyone have to say about the "Micro Torches" that run off cigarette lighters?

Bill, Ferree's shows a special bunsen burner type fitting where the propane tank "lays down" --- I though it was pretty expensive. : )
-------------------------------------------
I gave all the Ferree's Tools torch items a lot of thought. I ordered their L60 torch ($17), but it hasn't arrived yet. I was debating between the L60 and L56 for $52.50, but after talking to a Ferree's rep went with the L60. The latter is good for frequent use, which doesn't apply in my case.

I got the Triton resistance soldering tool for a couple of reasons. I read somewhere that a flame "may" damage key plating. I have no first hand experience, and I doubt this is true otherwise torches wouldn't be used by repair techs. I've scorched the wood on a piccolo, using an alcohol burner, but I think the "trick" is to direct the flame more across the key than directly at the key on the assembled unit. This is easier to do with a bunsen burner or L60 than an alcohol lamp. I think the Triton is good for seating pads. Just connect its probes across the cup, squeeze for a short count, and done (I hope).

I think the L60 and Triton are easy to hold and control, whereas the propane tank bunsen burner sits in its stands, and you need to work in relation to its fixed position.
