When fully charged, it should be 12.6v or more. Also depending on the cable length & cable used to your ignition source, low mAh won't have the current there to heat the nichrome. I use light duty speaker cable, not the heavy one, but the regular type & can run it at 20metres without a problem.

For boosting power, try using a voltage amplifier circuit or a plasma lighter circuit as they use only 3.7v, but give a high voltage output (electric arc that burns) or if you are using cheap throw away batteries, i suggest building a small joul thief circuit. You may want to add a capacitor to store more energy & smooth out voltage.
Just get a fucking gel cell and be done with it. Christ... it’s not rocket science. Well, the ignition part anyway.

A gel cell ? Lithium Polymer 3S 11.1v (LiPo) is the way i go & it's very efficient, but i was just giving examples for a question which needed an answer.
Lead/acid sealed cell. But fine... the fancy lithium would work too.
My remark is about all the wazoo electronic crap some are trying to use a watch battery to fire an igniter with. Waste of time and money. It IS kinda amusing tho.

BTW... never heard of the “Joule Thief” circuit. Cool. Thanks!
