I hooked everything up expecting to be disappointed. I thought that it was all good in theory, but it surely wouldn't work in practice. Making a hot fire would surely be more difficult that turning on an LED.
In the first attempt, I took the pictures and I am all sorts of no good at taking pictures. Shanelle assisted in the second attempt by taking some excellent pictures. I hooked everything up and told Shanelle what to expect and then flipped the switch.
It takes about 3 seconds for the igniter to get hot enough to fire. I'm just using a 6 cell AA pack of NiMH batteries. The total voltage is 8.4 volts - quite a bit lower than the preferred 12 volts. It's nice that the igniters were willing to give me joy on the 8.4.
