Best ignitor on the market! Let it charge over night, and 9/10 it won't die at the track will be buying a second one as a back up! Amazing stuff!

I have tried alot of different Glow starters in my days, but this one is a never fails product. It is probably the most durable and also the most reliable glow starter money can buy. Im sure if you look around the pits, you will find that this is by far the most popular product in pit lane.
