I really like the hobico hotshot thats rechargeable--I think it is a little more voltage than the ones that take a battery--I have 3 of them.

I use the AA sized heaters and I use energizer LSD 2050mah cells. Then I can charge a couple using an included wall charger or via my NiMH charger at .5A. One cell will get me through a break-in day, but I always carry an extra in my pit bag just in case.

Like this: https://www.amazon.com/Hobbypower-Ignitor-Igniter-Engine-Starter/dp/B075FH612K

Can usually be found on ebay for around $5.

The batteries are pricey'ish, this includes 4 2000mah AA cells:

Looks like they have some 2300mah AA cells available now too. Mine are all a few years old, but still work fine.

The "recharge" cells are LSD (low self discharge), so they hold a charge longer between charges. I always top mine off though before going out to bash, so can't say how long you can go really between charges if you don't use them. NiMH cells typically discharge quite a bit when not used. LSD's discharge themselves more slowly.
