What's the mAh for a standard C size battery? Ie: duracell, energizer...

Just seeing if I could use one in replacement of my glowdriver batt.

Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!

A duracell standard Alkaline C-Cell (MN 1400) is 7750mAH at 1.5 volts. This should work fine as a disposable replacement for your glow ignitor.

7750mAH!! WOW! the lil guy that's in there now is 1800mAH. Sweet deal.. now I've gotta figure out how to rig it.

Thanks

Do you think 1.5v is too much for a plug?? The one in the driver is 1.2v

No, it's not too much. In fact, in the "old days" before the invention of modern glow drivers the guys used to bring those old square dry-cells to deliver glow current. Those were also 1.5 volts.
