Anyone tried using a Piston Launcher to improve altitude?

Hi guys,

I came across a device called a piston launcher on apogeerockets.com
These can increase the altitude of your rocket by 10% so if your rocket has an expected altitude of 200m add this on it will be 220m approx

Here is the video here

My question is can they work on high powered launches or would the heat they generate be too much for the tube connected to the nozzle?

is it something that is only suitable for LPRs?
