Default Hookah foul at work

Today I was trying out some new coals, one I heated them I proceeded to pick them up with tongs and place them in the tray. Half way though, they exploded all over the carpet between my legs. Photo attached. Guess I won't be carrying this brand.

No better test for a product like hands on! Well good thing you got the bad ones early. What are you going to do about the carpet? Repair it? Perhaps, just leave it be. Either way, I hope it doesn't happen again

What brand was it.....Thanks for taking one for the team. I had a similar experience with exploding coal. It was those Easy-lite brand jap coals from Rolland company.

to tell you the truth the box has all arabic writing on it. I don't even know what brand it is! I haven't seen them sold by any vendors online though, Yellow and black box.
As far as the deposit, we'll see what happens when I leave but who knows I am hoping to stay here for years to come. It doesn't bother me as the office is a complete dump

wow, we use to carry a cheap egyptian quick lite brand way back in the day. it was called el pharoah instant lite. (im pretty sure its not for sale in the u.s. anymore) 3 out of 10 coals would explode when you used them. when they didnt explode it was a great coal, but when they did it was a race to put out the pieces before they would burn through the floor. I would always use my windcover when using these coals. the windcover blocked the coal fragments from going everywhere. everytime they would explode i would hear a loud "pop" sound. we never ordered that brand again.
(yes, i continued to use the coal even though they exploded, we couldnt sell them anymore and i just coulldnt let them go to waste or throw them away)
I hope no one has to deal with exploding coal, it runins your whole hookah session, especially if the piece of coal lands in your lap, not fun at all.

the abu hitam coals have english as well as arabic text on the box. I would be suprised to see these guys exploding regardless. They are probably, in my opinion, the best japanese tabs you can get.

That picture doesn't do the damage justice. It's just crater carpet now.

the last box i got was pretty bad quality. they broke apart all over and didn't stay hot that long. juno brought a box of golden canary which lasted much much longer and were much more stable.

Odd. I've never had in issue w/abu hitam coals. I have heard the GCs are pretty good however.

We'll see, man. I'm thinking of seeing how much a box costs.
