Torch lighters can still be carried in checked luggage with approved cases.
according to the TSA site, torches aren't even allowed in checked baggage...
The newest release, quoted above, says banned for carry on. It says it in the text and a little window on the TSA page. I am making an assumption that they have not updated the permitted for checked baggage page.
fueled lighters are permissible in checked luggage with approved DOT case. It says nothing to the definition of lighter fuel, whether lighter fluid or butane.
