What is butane used for in everyday life?

Propane and butane are two very similar gases, both used widely for fuel, especially for heating fuel.Butane, while not as commonly used as propane, is nonetheless a very popular heating fuel.Butane is also used in things like camp stoves, and is also seen in many cigarette lighters, and as a propellant in some aerosols.It is represented in the NFPA-704 system in the same way as propane, and like propane is also classified as highly flammable (F+).Butane is, generally speaking, a cheaper fuel than propane; although since it is less common it is not always possible to easily find devices fitted to work with butane. On a per-volume basis, butane is a more efficient fuel than propane, by around 12%. This means that a similar amount of butane and propane will yield more energy for the butane.
