Do they spark? Call up John and talk to him about it. Im sure it'll straighten it all out for ya....
+1 to this. I think by now Speel would know the difference between a coil burning off smoke and the coal itself. Easily found by simply lifting the coal off the coil. And as for environment, he's not doing anything different from when he lights Coconaras. He's not hiding in a closet with poor ventilation. I say try more from that same box and see if any others react that way. Afterall it is a man made manufactured item, meaning nowhere near perfect. It's possible QLs were dropped in the wrong box at manufacture as well. Good luck figuring it out Speel.
