Just picked up a Prince cigar lighter in HKG. Will be headed back to SIN tomorrow.

Can anyone advise if it's ok to transport it in checked baggage?

I took a trip to the Philippines earlier this year and from what I remember the rules were as following:

- Torch lighters are NOT permitted at all

- Common lighters (such as Bics or Zippos) containing fuel are NOT permitted in checked baggage but are allowed as carry-on items. Lighters not containing fuel are permitted in checked baggage as well as carry on.

If its a jet lighter then you'll have to mail it back. I don't know the regulations on normal ones though.

You mean, you can't bring one on the plane? I brought one back from overseas but made sure I emptied all the fuel. Brought it in a carry-on.
