Default Who makes a good glow starter?

I am trying to get my O'Donnell Z01T truggy back up and running and my old glow starter fell apart years ago (threads stripped). I just bought a Duratrax glow starter new through Amain and it is defective right out of the box. Does anyone make a reliable professional grade glow starter or am I stuck going through cheap stuff for life?

I really like my Dynamite Lipo Glow Plug Ignitor and it hasn't given me any issues in the past year. Only downside it doesn't lock onto the glow plug :-(

The dynamite lipos are nice, but they have a horrible failure rate. I've seen many lots of non working ones on ebay. I really like the hot shot, and also the losi twist-on. The older dynamite sub-c igniter works just fine. Make sure to cycle the battery every now and then and always keep a spare.
