Guess What Starter I'm Using

Guess What Starter I'm Using


Just for fun -- can you guess what kind of starter I'm using here? Watch the unusual start timing of each successive start. Lamp starts quickly the first time (cold), takes a long time on the second start, and then starts quickly the third time. Also notice the lack of a "ping" on the first start.

This is an off-the-shelf starter, so no guesses of manual start or homebrew devices allowed!

Glow starter, which mimic the behavior of a thermal starter (The ping is only during several of the strikes instead of each start of preheating and striking [Each closing and opening). Also, in 0:24, the preheat time was less than a sec, not realistic for a thermal starter).

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
