Default Crazy Idea for lighting coals.

So we were smoking at my friend's house one night and I had to go to the bathroom. As I was in the bathroom I came across the flat iron hair straightener and was thinking:
Is it possible to light up coals using a flat iron hair straightener?

1. no i dont think it is hot enough
2. why? if you have a stove
3. it would be dangerous and not as solid as a coil stove.

why? and i would be willing to be no. you need at least 450* f probably to light the coal since it is basically wood and im pretty sure that much heat would destroy hair. now a hot air gun (which is a hair dryer on steroids) would probably work if it was turned up

straighteners can give up to 450f... i have one at home here that produces 428 *f

But even if it work, it will take hours to light

I think best and fastest way to light coals is : use a butane torch (a really big one... with blue flames of 20cm ( 8 inch) and light it up a bit... then use a hot air gun.
I light my coconaras is about 2 minutes like that

If you want something you can keep right next to where you are smoking, they sell single coils at wallgreens for 10 bucks, and they work pretty well. Not as hot or fast as a regular stove, but still.
