Default glow plug starter advice...

i am new to nitros and i am shopping for a glow plug starter... i am looking at an AA battery powered one cause it is small... the more common is the D battery powered and i am wondering which one does everyone recommend... i have no idea how long a rechargeable AA would last in the device compared to the D powered one...

get a rechargeable one...

and the ones with the meter on top are good to have, they let you know weather or not the glow plug is working
