Default Lighting Fumari Odorless Coal + Questions

Can I light this coal with a BIC lighter or candle lighter torch?

I'm a newbie to smoking hookah again after "Big Blue" broke on me about 8 months ago. I forget, how long with decent air circulating through the room would it take for the smoke to dissapate? With a window open and closed?

Thanks much.

From http://www.fumari.com/hookah-charcoa...ss-charcoal-96

It lights quickly when set atop a kitchen stove and additional pieces easily light by being placed on already burning pieces.
I've never used these coals before, but I'd say if the site says you need to use a stove, then you probably need to use a stove.

As far as the smoke dissipating, it's usually gone for me within 30 minutes to an hour, and doesn't really linger at all if you have a window open. The smell will last longer, but if you're smoking a good smelling shisha then it really doesn't matter - it's like you had incense or something.

you can put them in a pan on the stovetop, or use a butane torch

They are Japanese easy lights (real Japanese, not Chinese imitation) so they work like Golden Canaries or Abu Hitam charcoals/cokes if you've used those before. You technically can light them using a lighter but it would take forever and I'd feel sorry for your thumb. A stove is a better method.

The benefits behind them are that they can light off of other coals so there's no need to use a stove for a second round of charcoals and they have little to no odor when lighting so they're more friendly for indoor smoking. Their ash doesn't block airflow causing them to go out as much either like other charcoals and imitation easy-lites. They are smaller however and don't last as long (~30 min) nor do they put out as much heat as say CH charcoals or Coconaras (which is actually better for some tobaccos).

I use my coconaras on an electric stove, takes 1 and an half min longer then a coil burner, so it should work for these coals

A butane plumbing torch would be your best bet as far as a lighter. However, I would recommend hitting up Walgreens for a single coil burner.
