Buy a butane container
Butane is readily available in the market under different brands and quantities. You should always go for a branded can of butane since it is safer, as compared to a low quality bottle, which may be a little cheap in price. Butane fuels come in pressurized containers and most of the times instructions about usage and storage are printed on the can.
Find a safe place
Proper storage of butane is very important because it can be dangerous if handled carelessly. Therefore, it is imperative that you keep the butane container away from children. Good quality butane containers have the ability to withstand high temperatures, and can be stored well even if you live in a warm area.
Store in a cool and dry place
A butane container can be stored anywhere in the house but needs to be kept away from direct sunlight, which can raise the container's temperature to unsafe levels. The butane container should be placed in a dry and cool place, away from any heat source.
Do not store butane in your vehicle
While keeping the container in your car can be convenient if your lighter runs out of fuel, it is not recommended at all because the temperature in a vehicle is often on the higher side.
You should always store the butane at home. If you are going on a long trip then the best option is to refill your lighter before leaving as it is likely to last at least a month and a half.
Keep an eye on the tip of a butane canister
In order to avoid leakage, you should check the tip of the container whenever you refill your lighter. If the tip is damaged, you should properly dispose the container and purchase a new one.
