Glass Alcohol Lamp


The wick-type alcohol lamp has a glass body with aluminum cap and aluminum snuffer cover. The hexagonal shape is designed to help reduce the risk of fuel spillage and fire if the lamp is knocked over while in use. Assemble your lamp by removing the wick from the glass body (a bent paperclip will do this easily) and inserting it through the hole in the cap. The wick should protrude about 1cm from the top of the metal cap. Spread out the wick fibers similar to the photo. The snuffer cover is designed to extinguish the flame. It is not tight fitting and will not keep alcohol from evaporating if stored in the lamp between uses. Remove fuel from the lamp and store it in the original fuel container between uses of more than a few hours. 

For best results, we recommend using denatured or ethyl alcohol (also called ethyl alcohol, ethanol or ethyl hydrate) with an alcohol content of 90% or higher. You can also use isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol with an alcohol content of 90% or higher.
