This is a really good and strong glow ignitor. It holds a charge for a really long time and heats plugs faster than most others that I have used!)

You wont find better, it is without a doubt the best igniter on the market and it seems to stay charged for a very very long time, if your in the market for a glow driver you cant go past the super hot shot 2. I cant recommend or praise it enough.)

I keep it charged but over the race weekend, i've used maybe 300mah total for charging. Great to know I should never have a car not start.)

Hobbico Super Hot-Shot (5000mAh NiCD)
Outstanding ignitor that lasts forever. Mine has been used to start 3 cars on a race day (plus random others that needed one in a hurry) and has never been drained below half way. Only issue I've ever had is with people walking away with it. It is fairly big so I'm grabbing the Hot Shot 2 for normal use and keeping the Super for backup.)

@Brian Drake, it does lock onto turbo plugs, just not OS turbo plugs, it locks on the Novarossi plugs.
Lasts forever. I don't have to charge it for a month. Best ignitor out there.)

Hobbico Super Hot-Shot (5000mAh NiCD)
This and the long shot 2 are probably some of the best ignitors out there. I've had and use these ignitors for my nitro cars and nitro airplanes and has never failed me yet. Simply a great product.)

Hobbico Super Hot-Shot (5000mAh NiCD)
Last glow ignitor you will buy. It fits on my turbo plugs. It does take a long time to charge, but that is the price you pay for a 5000 mah battery. The only way it could be better is if it had a meter on it so you knew if the plug was bad. I give it a 5 out of 5 because it does exactly what it says, but the meter would be a great improvement.)

Hobbico Super Hot-Shot (5000mAh NiCD)
Pretty sweet that its a 5000mah battery and that should last along time. The only thing is that it wont lock on as it says with turbo plugs just standard. Doesnt matter much since I dont drive with it in the cool head but its worth mentioning.

In the end its worth the money and the biggest battery I know of so far.)

Hobbico Super Hot-Shot (5000mAh NiCD)
The last glow driver you will ever buy. check your body clearance around the motor and the area where you have to access the glow plug, some of the truggy bodys with molded rollbars along the roof line will push the Super Hot Shot over a bit. in that case you would need the long Hot shot 2 with the extended reach.)
