At risk of hogging the thread, I've just seen a list with igniters starting at 25p each. OK add VAT and carriage and buy thousands.

Hello,

I've been to the leading Chinese igniter factory and the leading Czech igniter factory personally. Czech igniters are not made in China, copies might be however.

My advice...
If you're looking for ultra reliability (ISO9001 etc), buy Czech.
If you're not bothered and want them to a price, buy from China.
If you need them locally, I guess you take what you can get, otherwise mail order?
