Most discussions about hookah charcoal are limited to the type and shape or form. There is a perennial debate pitting quick light charcoal against natural alternatives. The other conversation is centered on the common shapes: cube, flat, cubette, finger or stick, cuboid, hexagon or hex, circle or disc, and quarter circle, among others. It is necessary to delve beyond these differentiators if you wish to find the safest, the most reliable, and the longest-lasting quick light charcoal available in stores today.
Pertinent Facts about Quick Light Charcoal
Instant or quick light charcoal is preferred by many hookah enthusiasts for the sheer convenience of lighting them up in a minute or so, if not earlier. There are numerous brands of quick light charcoal and you may choose any size or shape you want. Some shisha enthusiasts prefer the silver hookah charcoal. Popularized in Japan, this type of quick light charcoal is coated with silver. Before you get to these specific variants, let us first understand the composition of hookah charcoal.
Composition of Hookah Charcoal
Hookah charcoal can be natural, synthetic, or a combination of organic and chemical substances. For instance, coconut shell is widely considered as the safest base material for hookah charcoal. Bamboo is also used by some manufacturers. Fruit trees such as citrus, especially orange and lemon, along with olive wood and other plants are also widely sourced. Some companies use sawdust as the primary raw material for hookah charcoal. The main component is supplemented by binders and other substances to form the shape and size you get to see in the finished product.
Coconut shell is inarguably the best raw material for hookah charcoal, followed by bamboo and then wood. Sawdust is not really the most desirable raw material. Chemical substances or synthetic ingredients should ideally be avoided. There are natural binders such as starch that can be used instead of chemical adhesives and other additives. All shisha lovers should know about the composition of hookah charcoal for every brand they consider. You should not confine your preferences to size alone.
Quick Light Charcoal | Organic vs. Synthetic
Natural charcoal does not catch fire in a second. The material takes time to get heated up. Most types of natural charcoal take minutes to start burning. The time required also depends on the severity of heat a piece of natural charcoal is subjected to. A standard cigarette lighter may not be able to light a relatively large size of natural charcoal. The heat source is not potent enough. This compels a user to turn to a charcoal burner or some special lighter. Quick light charcoal has a coating that speeds up this process.
Almost all brands of quick light charcoal use some kind of accelerant. This does imply every brand uses a synthetic ingredient or harmful chemical. Some companies offer natural charcoal made from coconut shells or other organic raw materials with a quick light feature. The choice should not be between natural and synthetic or organic and chemical. The choice should be between natural charcoal taking a long time to get ignited and organic quick light charcoal that can be lit in just a few moments.
Advantages of Coconut Shell Quick Light Charcoal

- Coconut shell is a safe natural raw material. It does not produce the kind of tar and other toxins that many combustible materials generate when burned. The smoke is thus not harmful compared to burning chemicals and even the likes of sawdust.
- Coconut shell quick light charcoal is usually bound using natural starch. Chemical adhesives, additives, and other synthetic ingredients in hookah charcoal exude hundreds of derivative compounds, most of which are hazardous.
- Coconut shell quick light charcoal does not have any flavor or taste. The smoke is almost odorless. There is no aftertaste. All these features make coconut shell quick light charcoal a perfect heat source for hookahs. The flavors in your chosen shisha tobacco are not adversely affected by natural charcoal.

- Coconut shell quick light charcoal can be ignited easily. It can last much longer than chemical induced charcoal. Instant light charcoal comprising chemical accelerants burn faster and tend to go out in thirty to forty five minutes. Coconut shell lasts much longer, easily more than an hour for medium sized pieces, and up to an hour and a half for large sizes.
- Coconut shell quick light charcoal offers an even burn. Shisha connoisseurs are well aware of the uneven heat generated by instant light charcoal. This is why the pieces need to be moved, rotated, and replaced with fresh charcoal over time, often during the same session. Bid adieu to this problem.
