You refill it just like a butane lighter, you get the can of butane for lighters (I've used Colibri and Zippo brands) and just plug it into the bottom and press and hold for a few seconds.

One fillup lasts me a whole race day easily, unless two or three guys are sharing the iron with me, then I might need to refill once or twice during the day. A can of fuel gives me a bunch of refills, maybe eight or ten to a 3 dollar or so can of butane.

Sounds good.
What about buying a 7.2V iron and give it 12V?
I think a friend of mine has done it.
