Alfresco is always on the forefront of modernizing their grilling technology. Their ignition system is certainly one of these components. Early Alfresco AGBQ Grills used a AA Battery push button ignition then they moved onto the 9 volt two or four spark module (depending on the grill) ALX2 used both 9v Battery and electronic ignition (depending on the year) and now in the ALXE, the ignition system is completely electronic.
