1. Self-extinguishing lighter: This type of lighter requires continuous and purposeful and active action to maintain the flame. Once the action is stopped, the flame is automatically extinguished.
2. Non-self-extinguishing lighters: These lighters do not require intentional or active motion to maintain the flame, but require action to extinguish the flame.
3. Flame height: The linear distance from the head of the shield to the top of the visible flame. If there is no shield, it refers to the linear distance from the end of the exposed wick or the top of the valve port to the top of the visible flame.
4. Windshield: All or part of the gas valve port of a gas lighter or the air pipe of a liquid lighter.
5. Gas box valve: A part of a lighter that controls the release of gas.
6. Outlet: The location where the fuel gas is released.
7. Fire-fighting: Different flame heights under continuous burning conditions.
8. Sustained spontaneous combustion: non-human intentional movement causes the flame to spread, such as falling to cause ignition and continuous combustion.
9. Explosive fire, splashing fire: a droplet burning phenomenon in which a gas lighter does not concentrate the liquefied gas and escapes from the main flame.
10. Flame: Visible to the naked eye under normal light conditions or slightly dark and producing heat, often accompanied by flaming fuel burning results.
11. Ignition: Ignite the flame in a specific way using the ignition device and fuel release system built into the lighter.
