Question might be a stupid question but...

It was on my mind lately. Do you think a coffee cup warmer / cup warmer would get hot enough to light a natural coal? I ask, because right now I have my setup in the basement far away from a stove-top. I could probably rig one to supply more voltage to the warming plate hence getting hotter. Has anyone tried this?

yeah that's what I was thinking. I was also thinking like a portable stove of some sort. I could probably find some sort of hotplate to work for my needs.

Get a single burner from Walgreens. It is the best hookah investment I hae ever made. I think it is only for $10 or something like that.

I prefer to use my single coil burner i bought at walmart for like 7 bux. I use it because I have a glass top ( big no no for lighting coals) and I don't want to hold a butane lighter on my coals for 10 minutes. I'd rather be getting my hookah ready while the coals light themselves. (Under my supervision of course! Don't leave your hookah coals unattended!!)

It might work if you take off the protective platter and expose the underlying coil. I dunno if the coil gets red hot, I doubt it does. I assume you'd need red hot to get the coals going.

If you wanna hack on something to rig up some coils, electric hair dryers have nice small-sized coils that do get red hot. Just bust an old dryer open and cannibalize the parts. Toss the blower into your spare parts bin or somn. Reassemble the coils & power controls into the fire-proof decorative container of your choice =)

I got one of those campfire stoves today with a bottle of propane for $10 at Kmart. It works great and I can use it wherever I go with friends.
