Default Coco Brico Review Now please?! :P

Hello All I'm new here,

I see many reviews for the same products but I can't find a review for Coco Brico, maybe I'm not searching properly but I cant find a video review... someone somewhere has to do one now because I'm having trouble locating Coco Nara coal in the uk but I found a couple of sites with this coco brico stuff so review this damn shizzle someone!

moving to general hookah forum, more results there, as this is not a review but a request for one.

Cheers!

Yeah, that was me

Im lightning 3 of them up right now,
Odourless, they ash nicely(not all over the place),
if u dont touch them, they will stay in one grey cubicle.

They last longer than CH natties, in my experience.

And they are huge, twice the height of CH coals.
Havent used any other cubic naturals to compare them with.

I have done a video review but am having trouble uploading it. youtube keeps telling me it dosen 't recognise the format!! Anyway, They are huge but I cut them in half. Impossible to break by hand but a junior hacksaw does the job. Tried them whole to begin with but had issues with heat management. I find three halves do the trick for most bowls for a good hour or so.

walaikumasalaam esteban!

Yes they certainly seem like like they are comparable to coco nara coals...but in the uk coco naras cost a lot more to get hold of so I just need some evidence that they really are as good (or even almost as good) because coco brico is so cheap here in the uk it is not even funny. Its like it would be too good to be true if it were kind of the same thing as coco nara!

Hey, sorry, I totally forgot to do that review! i will do it later, probably tomorrow, but not sure.
but i want to answer your questions right now ...

How long does it take to get them fully lit?
with my burner, it takes about 10 minutes
Are they truely smokeless, odourless (geruchlos) and tasteless?
they are totally tasteless and smokeless. while lighting they have a strange smell, but when you smoke with them this smell is gone.
Do they affect the shisha compared to quicklites?
no, they dont effect the shisha, since there is no taste or smell of the coals
Does the coal allow the production of big fluffy white clouds?
yes, it does. you can check out my other reviews, im smoking with cocobricos all the time.
How long do they last?
the package says 2.5 hours, but i never smoked longer than 90 - 100 minutes with the same coals
What is the ash like?
very fine and little ash, i will show you later ..
Do they break up, if you move them around?
no, they dont.
Can you break them by smashing them with tongs?
no, you cant smash break them with the tongs. they are very massive ... but normally you dont need to break them. they have the perfect size
if you want to break them, you can light them completely and break them with your tongs then.
Do you have to use a windcover with them?
you can use a windcover, but normally you dont need one. i sometimes use one at the beginning of a session to get faster a huge amount of smoke.
the better question would be: "is there enough heat with these coals", and i would say yes. better than any quicklite and i think better than coconaras, too.

Cocobrico vs. Coconara
we dont have coconaras here in germany, but i already got them. i have to say, that cocobricos are better. the heat is much better than with the naras and they are cheaper, too!
84 pcs of coconaras are about $13 ... a 1 kg box of cocobricos (what is 72 pcs) cost about $4 (2,90)
