Kaloud revolutionized the hookah game with the creation of the world's first heat management device: the Kaloud Lotus. Since then, they've released improved versions of their original HMD, their own line of silicone hookahs bowls, and yes, even their own line of natural coconut hookah charcoal! Made with some of the highest quality ingredients and coconut shells that money can buy, everything about Kaloud Aura hookah coals lives up to their premium branding - even the packaging! Each piece is created with a "half-moon" shape that fits perfectly inside a Kaloud Lotus - as well as most other HMDs - and allows for optimal heat levels throughout every session. When it's time to perfect your HMD smoke sessions, look no further than the long-lasting, great-tasting flavor made possible with Kaloud hookah charcoal.
Kaloud only makes natural coconut hookah coals, so you'll need to find your nearest electric coil stove or charcoal burner to light them. Place your coals directly on the coil or burner and turn it to the highest setting. Once the coals are halfway lit, use a pair of metal tongs to flip them over so the other side can finish lighting. Depending on the size of the coal you're using and the power of the burner, these coals will be fully lit after approximately 7-15 minutes, or when all sides are entirely red-orange.
The Kaloud Lotus was the world's first hookah heat management device and is designed to be a replacement for aluminum foil when smoking. The Lotus is placed directly on your hookah bowl, no foil required and offers cleaner tasting sessions alongside easier heat management. It also acts as a wind cover for your hookah coals which helps prolong the life of your lit charcoal. You can find Kaloud's collection of heat management devices here.
Kaloud Aura coals last an average of 60 minutes, however, this can depend on several factors such as frequency of pulls and the airflow wherever you are smoking.
Kaloud Aura coals are designed using a "half-moon" shape that is specifically designed for use in heat management devices like the Kaloud Lotus Plus. We recommend using 1-2 pieces of charcoal depending on your shisha of choice. Due to the specific shape and size of Kaloud Aura coals, most heat management devices cannot accommodate more than 2 pieces.
