Default Glow plug igniter battery

Can I use a charger with an output of 3V to charge a Sub C 3000mA glow plug igniter battery. Will it damage my battery or is it fine

Most Glow Igniters use NiCD batteries so you're charger will need to support that type. I use my Hitec or Venom charger set to NiCD at 1 amp. It will charge my igniters to 1.5 volts.

If you can afford 28 bucks, get this lipo battery and charger for your glow plug.
I bought one, and holy cow, what a difference on how bright your glow
plug lights up.
