A Zippo always works
The function of the wick that hangs in a reservoir of fuel is characteristic for this lighter. By rotating the wheel alongside a flint the sparks will hit the wick. As such it will light up. A wind catcher is fitted around the wick. As such the Zippo has been wind-resistant for dozens of years, even before storm lighters emerged.
