I bought this one, but it's pricey. http://lightningtrigger.com/. I couldn't find anything on lightning triggers when I was doing my search on them except for this one. Being that my husband and I are constantly on the road, I keep missing all the good storms, consequently I haven't had the opportunity to try it out yet.

I have the AEO trigeer and it works very well. You will get the big lighting bolts but you will also get the distant lightning flashes. The rule of counting how many miles the lighning is away from you by counting the seconds between the bolt and the thunder is pretty accurate but lightning will also sometimes strike ahead of a storm and will sometimes strike from the ground upwards so be careful.
