Hookah charcoal comes in various shapes and sizes. When buying charcoal there are few things to consider including cost, ingredients, and particular usage. The most common type of hookah charcoal are quick light charcoals such as Swift Light and Starlight charcoal. These charcoals tend to ignite easily. They often come in two different sizes 33mm and 40mm and are disc-shaped and last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Smaller hookahs, specifically small hookah bowls, require 33mm charcoals because they simply will not fit larger charcoal sizes. Larger hookahs on the other hand can fit 40mm charcoals. However, many hookah smokers elect to use two or three 33mm charcoals on bigger bowls. While quick light charcoals are popular for convenience they don’t always ash gracefully or burn very long.
