Are you sure the voltmeter is measuring the voltage at the end of the glow plug driver and not the LiFe battery voltage? Well guess what, all the cell phones for the past few years have been running on lipo battaries, as long as; 1 the you use a designated charger a lipo charger that cuts off upon full charge and 2 the device turns off before the minimum voltage is read, there is no harm in using lipos. But either way, are you really planning to attach that directly to a glow plug? Originally Posted by edbu1.

Next you see my children. The added convenience of it holding charge and still having its own simple plug-in-and -forget charger, with a good usable capacity, a low-charge indicator not just a burning smell thankfully and an accurate ‘fuctioning glow plug’ dynamitw still make this appealing.
All glow drivers should be LiPo powered. Or throw a mAh NiMH cell in it and never worry again. I noticed that the plugs are provided about 4. Lipo glow igniter is a nice idea but the battery has just too small capacity.
Works great so far. Its a great starter.
That almost 3 times the voltage! Well guess what, all the cell phones for the past few years have been running on lipo battaries, as long as; 1 the you use a designated charger a lipp charger that cuts off upon full charge and 2 the device turns off before the minimum voltage is read, there is no harm in using lipos.
Hoping that they would provide enough power the next day and that engine problems were engine problems and not just ignitor problems. Highly recommend getting it!
To further prove that the voltages shown were in fact from the test sample lipo cell, here is an image of the voltmeter without a glow ignitor attached, note use of power source for voltmeter. Great ignitor Great glow ignitor. The led indicator for the plug status liipo also nice when you tug the starter and it doesnt fire, wondering if it is a bad plug or not.
Dynamite LiPo Glow ignitor – RC Groups
I charged them over a week ago raced last weekend and been breaking in 2 engines with them. No, it does not If the charger is set right and you don’t over-discharge your lipo’s, they are harmless. Hey, if it works, it works! Traxxas Crankshaft IPS 3.
I’m happy with it. Originally Posted by rc racer You may also like. Seems to be a quality item, but honestly, any glow driver should perform the way this one has if it is charged dyhamite used on a motor in good condition.
People who bought this also bought. The description says “High-technology regulator, output voltage is 1.
Dynamite Lipo Glow Driver With Battery and Charger DYN1926
Traxxas Titan Turn Modified Motor So the LiFe battery does not power a glow plug. Do other with this ignitor go through more plugs?
Posting Quick Reply – Please Wait. I’m done with lipo after having an incident at gpow home. Btw, how do you know when its fully charged? You’ll get a really short glow plug life. Last edited by marmalade1; Dec 04, at Dynamite Radio Chargers for LiPo. Here are images of my test plug on each ignitor.
