6V Battery-Powered Gas Light Igniter with Mantle Burner

6V Battery-Powered Gas Light Igniter with Mantle Burner


KnightLighter™ 6V Battery-Powered Gas Light Igniter with 2 or 3 Mantle Burner

Using the KnightLighter™ Automatic Gas Light Igniter, along with our proprietary mantle burner modification, makes your 2 or 3-Mantle gas light automatic.

Cut your gas costs and carbon footprint by adding our Electronic Ignition System (for all gas lighting) to your manual gas light!

The KnightLighter gas lamp igniter cuts gas costs and carbon dioxide emissions by 50% by keeping the lamp off during daylight hours. Savings can amount to $165 to $250 or more per year, depending on the price of natural gas. Greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by almost 2000 pounds per year for a typical 3-mantle burner, just by keeping the gas lamp off during the day.  

Using an integrated flame sensor, the gas lantern reignites automatically if the wind blows the flame out. If it's too windy to ignite, the gas supply is turned off after several ignition attempts.

Knightronix gas light igniters have been designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. since 1999.
