Right, yes the e-match will be exactly the same an e-match without the special plastic shroud. I wasn't aware that type were called Consumer Match. Different e-matches do vary in their electrical current requirements and how much the tolerances wander around over certain batches. However as a general rule, 1 Amp through an e-match will make it reliably ignite (in reality the current is usually much lower but you have to account for the outliers). This is an area where a decent quality e-match like the JTEC ones we sell come into their own over the Chinese / cheapy versions. Also worth noting that the JTECs are lead free and so are fine for confined space use (indoors etc) and also are incredibly friction insensitive. Take a piece of sandpaper to the JTEC e-match vs a Chinese one and you'll see what I mean. Cheers, Andrew.
