I mainly us CH nat's, or I use starlite nat's. I never use QL's anymore. They all suck IMO.

Do you use Quicklites? Japanese Silver tabs? Natural wood? I only use Natural coals.

What brand, what size, if natural - material used (lemon wood, olive wood, cocoshell, ect) and formation type (finger, bulk lump/chunks). I use the CronicHookah or starlight natural coals. I have used a few other types and these two brands are more consistant in size of the coals and the heat distrovution than any of the others I have used.

Both makers of coals make square coals. The Cronic Hookah coals are a bit larger than the starlight. They both have unifom sizes, so all of the coals are the same size. ************* is the best when it comes to uniformity though IMO.

And last but not least, how to you light them and how many in a session do you use? (not placement but grand total)

I light my coals with either a propane campng stove which i dont like. Or I use my wallgreens single coil electric burner. I love the single coil burner. It lights the coals perfectly!

When i use them, I use 3 coals at a time. In a 1 1/2 hour session i will use 6 coals. So depending on how long we smoke, depending on how may people i have over i wil go through a lot of them. The more people smoking the faster the coals are burned. Then again, i usually change the coals as soon as the smoke starts to thin out. The flavor will still be there, but just not as thick of a cloud as i like.

I use three coconaras, fully burned red on stove--flipped at least twice--on a 32" KM with a vortex bowl.
The coals are positioned in a triangle around the outer edge of the vortex bowl and are not moved during the smoke session.
I find that if the pack and shisha is good, ,then the smoke session can go nearly two hours with full flavor and only a minor drop in smoke density around an hour and a half.
However, when using my egyptian clay bowl I only use two cn's as the bowl is much smaller and three would be way too much heat. This is complicated though, as CN's can't be moved--they break if you try and pick them up--which makes the hole punch design critical for this setup.
I haven't found anything better than CN's, although I really do want to try natural wood eventually . . .

pixelz and I have been a fan of exoticas, I've used ******* Hookah charcoals for a long time and I love them. But pixelz loves exoticas, so that's primarily what we use. Ordered a box of Coca Naras, anxious to try them out.

I use AF naturals, Coconaras, CH nats, or Cocobricos. I refuse to use QLs they taste like pure ash. I have been liking AF nats. They are great for the price. They are like 60 $6 on John's site.

I use Coco Nara's, CH Naturals, and CH QL's - all are cubes and relatively the same size.

I usually use 2 Coco Nara's or 3 CH Naturals/QL's...They all last about 45-60 minutes, which is a typical session for me. I use the $10 electric stove to light the Coco Nara's and CH Naturals and a torch lighter to light the CH QL's.
