Dude... I've been there. I once hooked my glow plug clip to the starter terminals on my power panel by mistake... The starter terminals go straight to the 12 volt battery. I tried three glow heads before I realized my mistake.

The Cox battery box is two D cells in parallel, giving 1.5v at twice the current... Always worked a treat. If the glow head didn't glow too bright with the 1.4v that comes out of a NiCad glow driver, you probably needed a new head anyway.
