How does a Talon/Clip-on Igniter Clip work?

The Talon/Clip-on Igniter Clip uses a high resistance nichrome wire that becomes so hot it glows white when hot and electrical current passes through it. 

When the Talon/Clip-on Igniter is clipped on to the firework the wire makes direct contact with the Visco fuse. Pressing the button on your COBRA controller to fire the cue causes the electrical current to heat up the nichrome causing the Visco to ignite.
