I’ve bought 3 of these, but before I received them I discovered some commercially made electronic BBQ (gas cooker) igniters in my local hardware store. These operate off a single AAA or AA battery (depending on whether it is a two output of a four output model).
The dual output AAA battery model will create a reliable 0.5 inch pulsed spark.
With the built-in press switch and battery holder they are perfect for my orange cannon project, and reliably ignite an AeroStart (ether based diesel starter) mixture.
Now, what am I going to use my 3 Spark Gap Igniters for?
Yes it will. It is very similar to commercial electronic BBQ starters.
No public wish lists :(
