    Question Best Glow Ignitor

    What glow ignitor do you guys recommend? I am looking for something reliable, long lasting at a decent price?

    I use a hot shot 2........it works well.....it has a nice long stem on it and it holds a charge for a long time.......I have had it for about a year with no problems.

    I appologize for the dumb question, but when everyone says "C Cell", is it really just a like a energizer or duracell C battery? Sorry never used a glow ignitor, just trying to understand...

    edzakery, stay away from the regular c cell ones they can't / don't produce the current necessary to light the glow plug!

    go with what forbes suggests a rechargeable one, most of them use a sub-c cell, not the same as a standard 'flashlight battery' so don't be confused by that...
