A hot plate for $10 bucks from Target or walmart.

This is what it looks like:

A blowtorch is pretty good too, but kinda pricey.

IMO a gas stove is best. It lights the coals faster

I use a blow-torch.

Just heat them up on all sides until they glow really nice and red then flip then and repeat on all four sides. This method has worked for me through all the boxes i've had.

Torch, Gas Stove, Electric Stove ... In that order

I use an electric stove, here is my vid on the coals

Here is a video review of Exoticas, and How I light them ...

This is what I use.

Although WAL-MART doesn't list it on their site, I bought it there for $13.
The bottles usually are $3 apiece and last me almost a month.
