Robitronic bringing the power to Glow Plugs
Robitronic is ready to juice up your glow plugs with more power than you’ll likely know what to do with. Their new LiPo Glowstarter is said to provide a full days worth of glow igniting goodness from the 3.7v, 1200 mAh LiPo battery. The ignitor has a built in voltage regulator that brings that 3.7v down to a more appropriate 1.5v, so you don’t burn out your glow plugs prematurely. It also has a built in charging jack, a LED plug condition indicator, and includes an overnight wall charger. Robitronic says that the 1200 mAh LiPo will provide power comparable to a 3600 mAh NiMH.
