Best Shisha Heat Management Devices (HMD) including Kaloud Lotus, AOT Provost, MIG Razor, Steamulation, Starbuzz NAR, Meduse Hotwave etc.

Charcoal holders or Heat Management Devices (HMDs) are gradually replacing aluminium foils. The charcoals are placed inside the HMD and the HMD is placed on top of the shisha bowl instead of using aluminium foil.

Heat Management Devices control the heat transfer to the shisha tobacco by opening or closing the openings at the side or at the top of the HMD. The most widely used HMDs are Kaloud Lotus and AOT Provost. Below is a list with the most known Heat Management Devices.
