Exclamation ******* Hookah QL's Exploding?

So last night i was lighting a CH QL with a lighter, and about 30 seconds in i thought it was just about done, but i left it on a little longer. All of a sudden it started to crackle pretty loud for about 3 seconds, and then "POP" the coal exploded into two. Has this ever happened to anyone with these coals?

I've never had one explode, only the occasional popping when I torch them outside.

I've had a few pieces shard off as it's lighting but never splits in two.

i had one nat explode when i was moving it (i guess i did grab it a bit firm but the coal was a flawed one) but its only one out of the probably 800-1000 coals ive used from john give or take, no one said hookah was safe

They're the best damn QL's on the market IMO...just light them outside put them in something ceramic (I use an old soup bow)l and bring them in. That's what I do

This is an issue with all compressed coals and moisture in the air actually. If they get too humidified then the binders become weak. The reason that sometimes a QL can explode like that is because there will essentially be a fissure in the coal and the combustion elements cause a sudden burst igniting the vaporized chemicals that are in that space in that fissure.
