When you're looking for a hookah charcoal option that is easy to light and starts up in no time flat, look no further than our collection of quick-lighting hookah coals. With varying recipes made from both wood and coconut shells, each piece of charcoal is coated in a chemical accelerant that self-starts with the touch of a flame. Requiring no special equipment to light, quick lights provide convenient, easy-to-use hookah charcoal that allows you to enjoy your shisha no matter where you are.
Quick lighting charcoal is most commonly made out of wood gathered from fruit trees, however, some hookah coal brands offer quick lights made from coconut shells.
Quick lighting hookah coals are coated with a chemical accelerant that allows each piece to be lit quickly using nothing but an open flame (like from a candle lighter or torch). The convenience offered by quick light charcoal is unmatched, however, the chemical accelerant may interfere with the flavor of your shisha. Natural hookah coals do NOT contain any chemical accelerant, so they are only able to be lit using an electric coil stove or charcoal burner. While less convenient, natural coals tend to burn longer and more evenly than quick lighting coals and often provide a cleaner tasting, more accurate flavor profile to your smoke session.
When using quick lighting hookah charcoal, you will only need a flame lighter and a pair of metal tongs for the lighting process. Using your tongs to hold each piece, hold the flame to the edge of the coal until it begins to spark. Your coal will begin to self-light and will be done after 2-3 minutes, or until all sides are completely grey-ish orange.
