It is perplexing to me that they would go out? Unless you are only heating up for a minute? Be patient and give them 5 minutes to light all the way through. They will last you close to an hour.
i have found that when i use cocos that they last longer than an hour they take forever to burn haha. i thought it was a problem that the bottom was turning black but continued smoking with them cause they're amazing now my fears have been abolished. god i love the information coming from this site. even when im not looking for it.
