Using the Bernoulli principle, a windproof lighter uses a higher velocity to eject gas, which creates a lower pressure on the appropriate portion of the lighter's airflow path to "suck" more air into it and with the gas of the lighter. Mixing, violent reaction, burning, the high temperature formed by the flame makes the gas expand more, the pressure increases, and the flame is ejected at a higher speed. So it is not easy to extinguish. If the fire is extinguished, the high temperature metal mesh will ignite the fire again.
The simple description is: 1. Increase the jet of air to provide sufficient flammable gas; 2. Increase the heat accumulation and provide the ambient temperature for continuous combustion of the gas, which is done through the filament (at the spout).
