If your thinking of connecting your igniter directly to the batteries without a power panel, don't do it. You will blow the glow plug immediately. each battery pack is 7.2 volts and a glow plug is designed to light at 1.2 to 1.6 volts (approximately). You need to have a power panel to drop the voltage to these usable levels.

Heres a pic of a power panel. This one is attached to my OFNA starter box. As far as connection it, thats not too tough, even if you buy one seperate from you starter box. There is bascially a red and black wire coming from the panel that you need to wire into the battery's power. The panel itself takes care of reducing the voltage to proper levels. It also lets you vary the output of the glow igniter. No recharging an igniter, or worst losing one. This is by far the best glow igniting system.
