Unread postAuthor: killerbanjo » Sun Mar 25, 2012 6:17 pm

Hi all, just wondered if this will work ok for a hybrid. I belive it outputs 22kv but cant find any more information.

What sort of mix do you think i could get it up to?

Thanks, Ed.

I've used them at up to 10X with no issues.

Cheers mate, did it not ignite at a higher mix or have you just not tested it?

If you keep the spark gap small it will be ok right up to 30x at least.

Less. As small as you can make it; that's how I have mine anyway.

Sorry for double post but i think i might have a duff igniter :( I think i am doign it right, and have tryed many new and old batterys 1.5v and some rechargable 1.2v ones, Can somone with one of these see if im doign it right?

Pictures from eee pc webcam... sorry :roll:

This is where the battery goes in - the half metal ring connects to the inner ring
Image

Wire gets locked onto the half ring by plastic nut
Image

Button screws on, spring makes contact with the inner ring and when button is pressed the + side of the aaa battery is connected to it (the ring - and the wire i attached)
Image

On the bottom the end of the wire is placed close to the output. Button is pressed and nothing happens at all, no noise, no spark.
Image

Please help :roll:
