Questions & Answers

Is it 220 or 221?

Asked by Jack May 16, 2018
6
Answers

I presume you meant "110 or 220"? If so, it's definitely 110V (a.k.a. 120V) with a "normal" 3-prong wall plug (NEMA 5-15). Wattage is 550W, so no risk of popping a fuse or breaker.

How hot does it get

Like an electric stove element on high (it glows red).

Is the started compatible with Vision Kamado ceramic grills?

I wouldn't let this thing touch the actual grilles (grates), and there's no reason that I can think of to do so.

How to use it with the grill?

Answers

You just stick the loop in your pile of charcoal and plug it in. Watch out! It gets as hot as an electric stove element on "HIGH".

How many volts does it carry?

Asked by TCake June 5, 2016

Answers

It operates on normal household 120V power @ 550W (so, around 4.5 amps).

Will this work on enough charcoal to fill the coal grate?

Asked by Juststarting November 27, 2017

Answers

The starter only lights the fuel it's actually touching, which in turn lights the fuel around that. Even when using chemical starters, you should only be trying to light the "heart" of the fuel pile, in furtherance of the aforementioned chain reaction.

how many amps is this product

Asked by chele August 12, 2017
3
Answers

We can divide the given wattage (550W) by the voltage (120V) to get the current in amps (~4.6A).

Not lasting as long
I have had these for years and the only time they would break is if I forgot them and left them out in the bad weather. My most recent one stopped working the other day and I have taken real good care of it. Lasted less than 9 months. What's the deal? I know it only has a 90 day warranty, but will Home Depot replace it for free if I return it now?
