Nice to see the thicker insulation on the white lamp lead.
I like these pre wired igniters and some of the ballasts that are the same, our European screw terminal ones and push in wire connector ones commonly arc and burn out at the terminal connections.

The white wire is the same gauge as the other wires though if the printing on them is correct

Linear fluorescent will never lose to LED!
I am not Anti-LED, as I have some in use at my house.

These ignitors burn out really quickly but it probably isn't because of the wire insulation. Higher quality ignitors use the same wires, and they last way longer.

Most of or igniters just burn out at the terminals but I have known European Philips and tridonic igniters considered to be a good make catch fire and cause fitting fires, I have an old pic somewhere of initer fires in control boxed you will ding quite eye opening
