Default A couple of questions !

I've decided to buy a hookah.

Now there are some things that i cant find on hookahpro.
Ive got a couple of questions about. a hookah and shisa

1. if i use the electric coal thing does it make it healthier. ?
2. Is the electric coal thing compatible with all hookah's ?
3. Should i get two elctric coal things for more heat / smoke
4. What is the experience difference with herb shisha and tabaco shisha ?
5. I want to smoke with 3 or 4 friends and sometimes alone. do i need a autoseal hookah or is it better to go for a 1 hoose hookah ?
6. Does the smoke, damage the room, as in smell and colour change.
7. My budget is 150 euro's / 190 dollars
8. Is it true: the more hoses the less taste and smoke you get when you smoke alone. and how does it work if you smoke with friends ?

Those are my questions i did found most of them here. but not in combination for what i want.

Short story
I have a small lounge room. and i want to smoke there inside with 2-4 friends.
and i want to smoke alone. i also want to smoke on my balcony.
I really want to smoke more healthier so i prefer electric coal and herb shisha.

i love this hookah http://www.hookahhub.com/image.php?o...&image_id=3339

I probley said some really noob things here. so yea sorry for that : )

Greetings from The Netherlands

1. if i use the electric coal thing does it make it healthier. ?
Yes, definately. You don't inhale chemicals from the coals. Although Natural coals are more healthy than Quick Light coals, Electric coal is probably more healthy than Nat coals.

2. Is the electric coal thing compatible with all hookah's ?
I think it depends on the bowl instead of the hookah. I don't know how big an electric coal is. Maybe you get too much heat with too small bowls or few heat with too big bowls. But I don't think it will matter.

3. Should i get two elctric coal things for more heat / smoke
I guess one is enough

4. What is the experience difference with herb shisha and tabaco shisha ?
Herb shisha doesn't contain Nicotine, so herb shisha is not defined as tobacco, but as 'herbs'. If you want to smoke healthy, go for herb shisha. The taste of normal shisha tobacco is better as heard from many members that tried both.

5. I want to smoke with 3 or 4 friends and sometimes alone. do i need a autoseal hookah or is it better to go for a 1 hoose hookah ?
Depends on what you like. I like hookahs with only one hose, so I only got 1-hose hookahs. If more friends come over, they take their hookahs with them (also 1-hose) so we got 2-3 hookahs with 2-3 hoses.
If you wanna buy your hookah for smoking with friends, rather get a 2-hose or 3-hose hookah, with autoseal is better, or else you are pulling air.

6. Does the smoke, damage the room, as in smell and colour change.
I don't think so, not sure.

7. My budget is 150 euro's / 190 dollars
Should be fine for a hookah + some tobacco/coals (electric coal)

8. Is it true: the more hoses the less taste and smoke you get when you smoke alone. and how does it work if you smoke with friends ?
If you got a hookah with autoseal, there is a ball in the hose which prefents you from pulling air out of the other hoses, so only smoke. If you have a hookah with 3 hoses (auto sealed) you should get the same taste/smoke as a hookah with only 1 hose, but a session will be shorter because you are pulling more than with one hose.

I hope this helps, I don't have any experience with electric coals, maybe check some youtube vids about it. Good luck!

@Blaat thanks for all the awnsers. i watched 3 youtube video's about that electric coal.
the reviewers were pretty positive. and the taste was stronger. the only negative thing is. that it doesnt produce much smoke. and they adviced to get two.
so i think i'l give it i try!

Hmm yea my friends dont have hookah's...

And yea the "herbs" i like smoking " healthy " but does it make that big a difference in health. soms peeps here on the forum say it has 0.05% nicotine in it thats acceptble i guess


when im back home from work i'l pm you for that marktplaats add.
and some other dutch related questions

thanks! for the quick reply

I'm not sold on the electric coal thing, as I haven't seen a lot of great reviews.

As far as Herbal Shisha, there hasn't been any real research into the health differences between Herbal and real Tobacco based shisha. I would say most people find that smoking the actual tobacco based shisha's are more enjoyable (better flavor and such), and the only big difference I'd see is any nicotine buzz you might experience.

As far as hose number and autoseal, I'd say that a one hose pipe will work great for 95% of people. Unless you have a really massive group of people (5+), one hose should suffice as you want to sorta take your time smoking. It should be more about atmosphere and enjoyment rather then just hoovering as much as possible. The issue with autoseal hoseports is that they are usually pretty restricted, and you cannot purge the hookah should you want/need to.

As far as the smoke's effect on the room, the smell may last for a short term (day at most), but then it will fade. I smoke in my room quite often and there has been no lasting effect, compared to say cigarette smoke.

Hmm yea most people say get two, but does that fit and what about the wires. ?
So herbs or tabaco. it doesnt make a big differnce with health etc... ?

@Jedispam do you have experience with more hooses on a hookah
I still dont know if 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 hoses affects the quality i have two models i really like.

1. http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...-4-Black-L.jpg

2.http://www.hookahhub.com/image.php?o...&image_id=3339

Ah thanks for the info!

So as it seems now i could give electric coal a try and buy some real coal and test what suites me best. thats applies also for the shisha...
and a 1 hose or 2 hose is perfect for just lounging. i dont smoke with more than 3 + people at a time.

How can i see wich product has auto sealing ?
I really like the hookah below but i can't see the specs

I think all new hookahs have auto seal, not sure though, you can send them an e-mail.

If you are smoking with 3-4 people, 2 hoses are fine, especially when you are smoking with ppl who are not used to hookah.

I'm not sure what brands have auto seal other than Mya. The auto seal is a nice feature on a hookah with multiple hoses.
