I won a Dynamite Lipo Ignitor at X-Fest this year (door prize) and wished I had bought one sooner!

A+ product.

I have both the super hot shot (the d cell one) and the Dynamite lipo ignitor and must say that dynamite igniter lights my plugs up like a light bulb.

They are both good but if I had to choose I would go with the Dynamite Lipo igniter.

A lot of people use the hotshot one...I have a nice blue one(don't know the maker) which I can switch cells in I swapped in a zapped 3900 I had from back in the day and it works like a charm and holds a charge forever...I still have about 8-3900's So I will be using those batteries in my glow ignitors until they all quit

Its really hard to beat the Hot Shot. I dont like the ones with removable cells as it relies on the threaded area to carry current to the tip. They never seem to glow as brightly as one thats not servicable. The ones Ive had with meters always seem to have the meter crap out within a year which makes them pretty worthless. My buddy has been using the same Hot Shot for years and he doesnt really take very good car of it either. Mine is about 2 years old now and still going strong but I will probably get a new one next year just for piece of mind and its either going to be another Hot Shot or the Dynamite lipo one. Im not quite sure yet if the lipo one is worth the extra coin though.

Is there a twist lock type ignitor that locks properly onto turbo plugs? Hotshot/mugen ones can't lock onto picco or o'donnel plugs.

i would have to say that the lipo dynamite ignitor is the best ive ever owned. It charges automatically and shuts off when its done. Also runs at 1.5v or higher so it will heat the plug hotter than any nicd or nimh battery would. and its only $20 from horizon.

Why does everyone like the igniter to lock in place? I like to defeat this feature. When you push it down on the plug you also push the chassis onto the starter box. When it fires its simple to take back off, just raise your hand. Don't know how many times I have seen someone have a stuck in place igniter when in a hurry.

If you are not using a starter box I can see the need.

Just wondering.

It's annoying when you have an angled engine mount. Still works fine by pushing on it, but if it locks that would be easier.

I like the ones that twist. The one with the handle and spring I take the handle off and remove the spring then put a little rubber and around the tip to keep it closed. Then just push on and it's done.

Default Charging the Dynamite lipo glow ignighter

Does anyone know if you can charge it using a regular computer lipo charger (of course set to the correct settings).

The reason why I ask is because I have problem finding it with a 240V charger and "euro plug".

In any case, maybe someone that have the igniter can have a look and post what is written on the dedicated charger?

Default Pushglo

Anyone tried the 'PushGlo' yet? Just seems to be a great alternative which doesn't need charging anymore. Onboard mounted, small in size and uses only a little of your Rx battery. Thinking of going that way, just wanna know if anyone has used them before?
