Has anyone used MJG's new FireWire Initiators in a rocket, yet? https://electricmatch.com/products/see/6/mjg-firewire-initiator These are their new HAZMAT-free/license free initiators, and I'm wondering what folks have had for experience with them, thus far. If you've used them, I'd also be curious to hear how you used them (ejection charges, staging, main igniter, etc) and what electronics. -Kevin

 And one persons's experience with testing them.

I ordered a batch of the new MJG Technologies firewire initiators.  I tried firing one off of the telemega and I just got an open circuit (not enough juice from the 4.? V battery). I touched a new one off of a 12V battery and it made an impressive snap instantly. Worked great too off of a 9V battery so it should work fine on a stratologger.With my comprehensive experiment consisting of three trials, they work well but the telemega/ telemetrum will need a pyro battery with more voltage and thus current to fire. Regards, Eric
