My advice - Get the classic. Yes, the piezo ignitor on it is nearly worthless. Mine only works when my hiking partner tries it as I'm saying "That's not gonna work; here's the stri..." However, most piezo ignitors are pretty unreliable, and you should always have a striker or some other ignition source anyway. It's also pretty obvious when it's boiling, so I don't think the indicator is worth paying for. The classic Jetboil is a great piece of equipment - very fuel efficient, lightweight, and compact.
