I've been around RC a long time so reasonably familiar with plugs & starting. These el-cheapo clip-ons are essentially a NiMH cell direct connection, I don't think there is any other magic inside other than some have a mickey mouse meter in the end. There are much better driver units which not only regulate off of larger voltage lithium cells, but also sense plug resistance & adjust power on the fly, but they cost more. What I'd really like is to reverse engineer & have one dedicated per cylinder. Bottom line is the simple clip-ons work reasonably well. One cell per cylinder.
