ProTek RC "SureStart" Pencil Style Glow Igniter (AA Battery)
The product seems to be cheaply made. Fall apart easily. I ordered two of these to start my Schumacher Twin and it will not do the job. It refuses to hold onto the glowplug and slips off very easily.

It works. No muss no fuss. Used high capacity rechargeable from Walgreens. I just keep an extra battery in my pocket on race days. It works until it doesn't, then change the battery.

Good glow ignitor, works well with energizer AA rechargeables.

ProTek RC "SureStart" Pencil Style Glow Igniter (AA Battery)
FWIW, Alkilines and many of the off the shelf NiMh batteries don't provide the current an ignitor needs to really light up an element. I love the these small ignitors but the performance left much to be desired UNTIL I found these Awesome high discharge AA's on a cheap battery pack website. The capacity is only 1800 MaHr or so but they will put out 30 amps! Problem solved, they last a long time, multiple race weekends before a recharge. These pencil type of ignitors are all I own now. Just get the right cell. BTW in my experience, almost All of the plunger style ignitors don't hold the plug well. It's just the way it is. I personally have never needed an ignitor to hold onto a plug anyhow. Just heat the plug to start and remove. No need to let it sit and burn the life out of the element.
