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.)

Always works; period. I have a couple of those fancy dancy LiPo glow igniters that claim they are the best thing since they deliver a constant 1.5v.... Save your money. Use one of these. The twist lock is simple and holds tight. I've never had the battery die on even a long race day. It simply works.

If you have another charger that charges Lipo & NiCd batteries, I suggest getting a charge lead for these like these: PTK-5240 or LRP65826. This is a 1500mAh NiCd you can safely charge it at 3-4 Amps. If you were around back in the day when we used round cells (NiCd or NiMh) you will know you should always fully discharge your round cell and then charge it back up. These adapters will allow you to keep your battery in better condition and charge it much faster. (just my 2 cents.))
