Default CH quicklites

Anyone else have a hardtime getting these things to light with a lighter? I tried to get these to light up with a lighter and they wont light. I had to use my gas stove, and even then it took a litle bit for them to light up.

Also, when using th CH coals, they tend to fade off failrly quickly. They dont go out, but the heat goes away pretty fast, these tings are supposed to last atleast 30 mins or so right?

The first few I used they didn't seem to last too long, but now they last me about 30-40 minutes depending on how many people i'm smoking with. You just have to be willing to throw another set on there. As for lighting, usually once I light up a corner decently it spreads and lights up with ease. I did have one in my current box that would not light though..

try using a torch lighter, or try to use just the orange/tip of the flame from say a bic lighter. I got my first box of CH QL a few days ago and so far so good. I am pretty sure the accelerants are mixed into the coals so it should spark up, rather than some QL brands who only have an accelerant coatin on the outside of the coal : /

Maybe there damp so require more heat to spark up. Although CH quicklights are the best QLs, natural coconut coals are still better, more heat and they last longer. If you get a coil burner and put the naturals on while you setup your hookah they should be ready when you are

Ok, so the coals will burn a lot faster with more people smoking on it? I dont have a problem with throwing more coals on, i just figured 12 coals in a 2 hour session was a bit much. Also, the box i bought probably was sitting on the shelf at the store i bought them at for a while. I will have to only buy them from john from now on. I also did have about 8 people smoking on it. Great heat at first, great flavor. But the coals burned down failry quickly.

i can see 12 coals in 2 hours under certain circumstances. what kind of bowl and how many coals at 1 time, 3 at a time at 30 minute sessions with people constantly hitting at it sounds reasonable.

These coals last pretty long when I use them. Usually have 3 coals on my phunnel, and have three friends on it. About 30-40 minutes, at that rate its pretty good IMO. I love these coals!

3, a med egyptian, and 2 large phunnel bowls. Like i said we had a lot of people smoking that night. I was just stoked that i was able to keep the flavor consistant and the heat was doing good. but i think it was the amount of people that were smoking on it that did it, not the coals.

This was exactly the case john. People constantly hitting it . lol. I used 3 coals at all times. Kept it nice and heated. I just made sure to move the coals constantly.

I just light these with just a bic lighter outside and starts in 10-15 seconds.

And I usually use 3 coals at a time and they last me 50 minutes or so. Then again its usually just me and my roommate smoking.

I'll use 3 on my small funnel and 2 on my vortex with a windcover and I'll get at least an hour out of them but usually I'm a solo smoker.

Hayter: How in the world are you not able to get CH QLs to light with a lighter? These things are a little volitle on light up, but I usually get the propellant going in under 5 seconds...

Dont know, as i stated i think the box i bought was on the shelf for a long time, so it might have had moisture get to them, or they are just old. They work well on the stove after about 2 or 3 mins.

Mine scare me, I use a extended light to light mine lol. Its like a fireball, but they are good to go in less than 30 seconds. I think your coals are just simply old, my friend had some coals laying around and they took forever to light for QL's.

Usually i hold the lighter for ~15 seconds under 1 corner. Than move it around to the next corner, and it gets started, than blow gently on it so it gets going.

Than i set it down on its edge, and light the rest, than throw them on at the same time

I just have mine on a shelf in ziplock bags, although air seeps into them cause there are small holes and its annoying. But they have been flaring up as I like to say, perfectly fine though.

The box says they are a natural absorbent, so maybe on top of your refrigerator they are absorbing stuff? Idk anything is possible, but my coals are awesome planning on buy more soon!

CH QLs are definitely the best QLs on the market. However, the heat does die down after moving the coal(s) or ashing them.
