Propane vs Butane Torch Cost/Pricing

Discussion in 'Smoking Accessories Q&A' started by NBAhoops, Mar 24, 2016.

  1. Bernzomatic blue Plumbers Torch is $3 for the large blue can refills (14.1 oz)
    Low quality butane in a 24 cans 300 mL pack is $55


    24 cans x 300 mL = 7,200 mL of fuel ($55)
    14.1 oz converted to mL = 414
    7,200 / 414 = 17.4 (cans of propane)
    17.4 x $3 = $52.17

    This would mean that butane and propane pretty much cost the same price ?
    Can someone please confirm is this is correct or completely off. i am needing to purchase a new torch tomorrow. thx
     
  2. A single big blue torches will last longer than a case of butane in my experience. But butane torches are better at preventing oxidation and they look better than big blue

  3. The propane ones are louder to if your doing late night Dabs
     
  4. yeah the looks and portability/size of it are some of the main reasons I'm wanting to switch to butane but i just can't justify if its a lot more costly to refill over time as i will be using it a lot. Sound level is not an concern.
