Yeah, if the coals keep going out, it is not your fault at all, and if you bought such a large quantity you should be able to try one from each and if they suck, you should be able to get different ones. The CH QL's I have burn all the way through without even being touched, or being on the bowl - know because I accidentally lit them on the stove, I though they were natural.
You also sound like you know what you are doing, so I'm not gonna say anything involving "are the coals all the way lit" and stuff like that.
