If you get a good bbq ignitor (one for a bbq) and not one from a lighter, it should work for a long time before it fails. You can do alot more with a bbq ignitor than a flint one (multiple sparks, remote igniton over a small distace, can use on different guns) Often it is not the ignitor that has failed, its just the electrodes getting covered in gunk and not allowing a spark to jump.
