We sell a variety of brands of charcoal. Hookah Charcoal is most commonly found in two types: Natural & Quick Light a.k.a Self Igniting. We carry a variety of brands in both natural and quick lighting charcoal.
The most traditional style of hookah charcoal is referred to as natural. Natural charcoals are is most often pieces of pyrolized wood, wood dust, or compressed coconut shells. Because natural coals contain no chemical lighting agents, they require a steady source of heat such as a torch or table top burner to ignite.
The main benefit of quick light charcoals is convenience and portability. Self igniting coals can be ignited with a lighter, wic, or even a simple match. Made of compressed coal dust, quick-light coals contain an accelerator (typically sulfur) to finish igniting the entire coal from an original spark. Because of the chemical starters in quick light charcoal, it is recommended to let the coal burn for a few minutes so that all of the accelerator has burned off.
We sell several options of coal burners that make it easy to ignite your coals. These work just like a stove top burner. The main benefit of a dedicated burner is the ease of use and clean up versus igniting on the stove.
