I've had a FlashFire igniter in my MAK since October 2015. The same igniter. No replacements. It works flawlessly and perfectly every time I push the ON button. I am STILL amazed at how quickly the fire in my grill firepot starts. 3 minutes tops. If you have not replaced your cartridge heater igniter with FlashFire, DO IT. JUST DO IT! It's one of the best upgrades you can do to your MAK Grill.
