How long will a Zippo wick last?
Wicks should be replaced once or twice a year. Each wick is almost four (4) inches in length, so after 2-3 trimmings youll need to replace the wick. The wick should be changed if the lighter does not lighter properly or if the ignition process has to be repeated multiple times.
