Default Update on Electric hookah heater

I made this review if you don'r remember: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/video...ls&videoid=243

Well, I tried it with some buddies last night again and after a while we noticed that smoke seemed to be coming out of the handle, and it tasted awful and smelled like burning plastic, which leads me to believe there is metal connected throughout the dome area down to the handle which is just covered in plastic, and as it gets hotter, it starts to melt!

So I guess my review changes from "hmm it's kinda neat" to "nuke it from orbit with fire."

HOWEVER it still makes an AWESOME coal heater. Since you flip it upside down there's more open space for the heat to escape from so you don't have to worry about shit melting... still 50bux though so your milage may vary

I'm starting to think that the only attempt to smoke without coals that is worth while is the shishaart narghile I posted about a while ago. These electrical gizmos never seem to work as advertised.

I have one of those, Its really easy to use you just flip a switch. My only problem was heat management.

and its funny because all I use mine for is light coals too now.

I'm sure they could, with a little engineering work. There's "vaporizer" wands that are similar in concept, but I can't say how well they work for their intended purpose, let alone how they might work for shisha, as I've never had one to try.

the e-cig is basically a tiny heater that turns on when air is sucked in. I bet if the work was put into it, you could have an electric heater that has a constant temperature but can detect you puffing on the hose and raise the temp for that time.
