Dual Ignition

Unread postAuthor: muddyspudman » Tue Feb 13, 2007 4:10 pm

Hello all,
How do I go about a dual ignition with a Bbq lighter. or is it even possible? I think my spark is to small. is that possible?? I have seen these dual spark chambers but I think I would need a better ignition system.
Any ideas??

+ i heard about a battery powerd bbq lighter????
can't find one.

Yes, you can do two gaps with a piezo BBQ sparker.

It doesn't matter how many gaps you have (1 or 50) as long as the TOTAL GAP distance isn't more than about a quarter inch (might be a bit more than that, if you got a good piezo). My cannon has a spark strip with 5 small (fingernail-width) gaps, and a BBQ sparker will jump all 5. Lights up propane just fine.

Just wire the gaps/electrodes in series. Here's a diagram. The "+" should be hooked up to the terminals on the sparker - doesn't matter which one goes where. "---" is wire, "o" are gaps:

Hello you,

Any ideas???
