Have always used the standard blowtorch for this.  Haven't burned down any houses.  Yet.

Over lunch today I learned that your answer is the best of the two.  A mini blowtorch,  a soplete, will work and that would possibly guarantee a regular supply of fuel for refills.

My friend uses a grill lighter but I just put it under a broiler. Making sure the custard is very cold . I have to use a dish which I know will not crack by the high heat,.....the colouring and caramelization is less even than with a torch  but (in my opinion) this is still a very practical method and can be done in a pinch.
