Default Idea for lighting natural coals.

Hey, so the situation is that my friends and I do not have a readily available stove, because we have to smoke in my friends room. His mom is not very fond of us smoking. Anyway, would it be possible to light a quick light, then when it is fully lit , put a natural on top of it; would this light the natural?
Thanks in advance,
Tim

if youre gonna use a quick light, use a ******* hookah quick light, it tastes like a natural.

if you want to light them and smoke indoors, get a hot plate from walgreens, its cheap. get the coil kind.

if you dont want to do that, get a propane torch.

if you dont want to do that, make that ghetto coal lighter from the DIY hookah stuff forum, that idea is quite high speed really.

yeah ill probably end up doing that, but just wanted to see if we have any alternatives seeing as how we just started out and that DIY one looks really unsafe to me.

Be careful, don't light your coals in your room, there has to be some ventilation

like others said its easier to just grab a single coil burner or stick to QL's. Yes lighting a naty with a QL will work I used to do it all the time, just make sure the nat fully lights too.

Those CH quicklights from john hold up very nicely, but if you light them indoors be ready to hold your breathe.

yea that would work, if not try heating one natural coal and another quicklight, then add to a pile of coal, and they will all be lit soon enough, if not get a powerful lighter and light the bottom of the coals then as you toke the shisha the rest of the coal, will light

Quicklights do light naturals but they take ages. You should just buy some ******* hookah quicklights.

dealextreme.com has great 1300C torch lighters. i use an flat burner. it works just as good as a coil. like everyone else, i recommend lighting in a easily ventilated area.



P.S. Mom's house, mom's rules.

OK so I was at walmart this afternoon, and almost bought me a Little Campstove burner, it was only 13 dollars, and the gas for the burner is only 3 dollars, and it last a long time, my parents use the stuff when camping (duh Camping stove), and it's real small, I'd go to walmart and see if you could get something like that, You don't even need an electrical outlet.
