and as mentioned, its exactly like the shisha vac. just in my case....a short trip up to the attic to find it and not $250.
The way you start it is not going to prolong the session any more than the 5 minutes it would take for the bowl to heat up naturally. Any change in session length would have to be another factor.
I have experiences in which a friend will try to start the bowl with long drags from the hookah and they end up scorching the tobacco. Wetter tobacco is more resistant to this but it is a possibility.
