camera flash is free if you got an old camera and wire, it also is better

but really theirs only a few ignition methods theirs not much we can do but point the obvious which were not supose to do and $2 is awful low

if you're looking for cheap, yeah, use the camera flash feature. But I never liked the amount of time it took to warm up and all that. I would say spend the 8 on a replacement bbq igniter.

If you payed to build a nice cannon, why are you skimping on the ignition? Seems a waste.

lantern lighter would be a good buy. Only about 3-4 bucks

stun guns are about 25 though

if you are looking for a 2 dollar ignitor go with hte lantern lighter...although lantern lighters tend to eat flint like crazy and you have to change them sometimes because they get all crappy
