I remember awhile ago, I had a buddy who used to smoke and after using the cigarette lighter he would tap the lighter against the ash tray to get the ashes off it. When he would sometimes light his cigarette, some of the cigarette would stick to the filament of the lighter and he would attempt to knock it off. After doing this so many times, the lighter bean shorting out and whenever it was pushed in to heat up the coil, the coil would short to the outer shell of the lighter and blow the fuse.

Just something to think about.
