Default Electric Coal and a Vortex

So the big question I have is if anyone has used of these electric coal gadgets on a funnel or vortex bowl and if so what is the verdict?

the problem is getting them to america :\ there have been sooo many posts of electric coals. the problem is that the Chinese/Japanese use diffrent currancy so american money has to be wired and converted. i believe one member has one, or almost had one.

Nazar has them now actually. And yes they are the new smaller version that apparently works better than the more commonly known design.

Hajo I don't know what the verdict is but the assumption so far is that it will take two of the electric coals to properly heat the vortex.

Hajo, as soon as my two get here I am trying them on a Vortx and a phunnel. I think everyone here that pre-ordered them from Mahir will be posting about them. Cheers!

well i ordered one and im going to put it to the test, first im going to try it on my vortex with tangiers, then im going to switch to my phunnel and put baja since it take tons of heat. I most likely wont do a video review for a while or at least till i get use to it. Ill let you know how it turns out.

Two of them worked perfectly on a phunnel loaded with 06 AF grape. It took a few minutes to get up to heat but when it did it was beautiful. The best tasting smoke and monster clouds. Adding, I used no wind cover with two of them.
