So my single tier brew stand has propane burners. NO automation here. NO gals valves. Just turn the ball valves on and manually light the burners. I would like to use some igniters but not the pushbutton BBQ style ones. Are there electric ones that do the same thing via a battery? Where and how much?

Thanks all.

Can you mount the electrode in the flame? Seems like it would melt...

Oh, and I found one cheaper...

The electrode will not melt in the flame, the challenge is getting it positioned so the spark can light the burner off. Usually the method is to hit one of the burner openings at the edge with the spark. Another item that can give you trouble is fuel/air ratio, lean mixtures are hard to light, adjust air shutter until you just see a hint of yellow in the flame tips, that is optimum mix.
