Flints

I have a Vector Emperor lighter that uses a flint as a starter. Anybody know where I can buy replacement flints? Do the Zippo flints works in these? I found the Vector flints at BargainHumidors.com but they nearly $6 to ship $3 worth of flints.

Thanks, Reb. But I'd just soon order a pack or 2 for spares. Where are you getting yours?

I bought a five-pack of Ronson flints at a local Menards. You can spot them in a yellow plastic card that hold them on the rack. The actual flints are little red cylinders. Disclaimer: I haven't had the need to replace a flint yet but I was told they work just fine.

Zippo and Ronson flints are interchangeable.
