    that's weird, cos it really sounded like the piezo ignitor from an old lighter

    big top secret spark thing
    are you 5 years old and think we were born yesterday?
    that is a electric stove lighter running on a AA battery

     its obviously justy a piezo igniter from an old lighter there is no capacitor
    its even tagged "piezo" and if thats not obvious enough i dont know what is
