I'm not sure how much faster these things are but everyone seems to like the single coil burners from target or walgreens or some place that would sell camping supplies

Dude, throw them on a burner, go setup your hookah, and by the the time you're done, you should be ready to smoke.

Yes, but put them in a pan to protect the top (it's a glasstop, right?). Coco's take FOREVER to light, but I do as dakingkevin23 says. Start the coals first, then set-up the hookah. By then the coco's should be lit.

Trust me, the wait may seem long at first. But once you start smoking, its worthwhile ^_^

Just like Kevin said, just prepare your hookah while the coals are warming up so it won't seem as long.

BTW, after a while, warming up the coals won't seem so long. I've been smoking with naturals for months now and they don't seem like they take too long to warm up since I'm so used to them.

you could speed it up by throwing a windcover over the coals too, but be careful, that windcover gets really hot.
