I heard they don't last for very long, around 10 mins, and I think they got much more shit than QL or Natural coals. I wouldn't try it.

If you can do 10 mins with one coal, you need 6 coals for an hour of smoke. So with 100 coals you can do 100/6 = 16-17 sessions of an hour, if they last for 10 mins.
This is for bbq coals ofc.. with normal coals you can have more sessions.

It depends on how many coals you use per session. I usually use 2 natural coals for one smoke session. So that would make 50 sessions. But in a lot of reviews I see ppl using 3, sometimes 4 coconara's, so that would be 25-34 sessions.

I ordered a box of bamboocha too. I had them before, nice coals. I think 60 in a kg. And a 3kg box is €6,49. So 180 coals for €6,49 (in Germany)

It depends on what kind of coal you're using. If it's all natural charcoal with nothing added (quicklight charcoal) then you'll be fine. It's no different from bulk lump charcoal used for hookahs.
But like others have said, you will have alot of ash and they won't last very long.

So that would be not a option i want to relax when i'm going to smoke hookah and not heating every 10 minutes some coals.
are there any top brands in the coals scene ?
Like KM is a top brand ( for allot of people )

and how long does a normal hookah coal keep the shisha going

I don't know if Exoticas are available over there (that's my preferred coals), but I hear good things about Cocbricos which I know are.
Look for a decent coal to last about an hour or so.

I'l try some coals out. thanx for the tips i def. going to buy those bamboocha if they are that cheap. and i'l search for them exotica's ^^

i'm still looking for a good vendor in europe. for the shisha and hose.
