Many high quality hookah sticks, only contain water , fruit flavoring, and Propylene glycol neither of which are harmful, and most definitely less harmful than cigarettes.
Propylene glycol, also called 1,2-propanediol or propane-1,2-diol, is an organic compound (a diol or double alcohol) with formula C3H8O2. It is a colorless, nearly odorless, clear, viscous liquid with a faintly sweet taste, hygroscopic and miscible with water, acetone, and chloroform.

The compound is sometimes called α-propylene glycol to distinguish it from the isomer propane-1,3-diol (β-propylene glycol).
The acute oral toxicity of propylene glycol is very low, and large quantities are required to cause perceptible health damage in humans; propylene glycol is metabolized in the human body intopyruvic acid (a normal part of the glucose-metabolism process, readily converted to energy), acetic acid (handled by ethanol-metabolism), lactic acid (a normal acid generally abundant during digestion),[12] and propionaldehyde (a potentially hazardous substance).[13][14][15]
Serious toxicity generally occurs only at plasma concentrations over 1 g/L, which requires extremely high intake over a relatively short period of time.[16] It would be nearly impossible to reach toxic levels by consuming foods or supplements, which contain at most 1 g/kg of PG. Cases of propylene glycol poisoning are usually related to either inappropriate intravenous administration or accidental ingestion of large quantities by children.[17] The potential for long-term oral toxicity is also low. In one study, in 1972, 12 rats were provided with feed containing as much as 5% PG in feed over a period of 104 weeks and they showed no apparent ill effects; no data on offspring was offered.[18] Because of its low chronic oral toxicity, propylene glycol was classified by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration as “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) for use as a direct food additive.

Yes. FDA issued a letter to the Electronic Cigarette Association inviting electronic cigarette firms to work in cooperation with the agency toward the goal of assuring that electronic cigarettes sold in the United States are lawfully marketed.  The agency intends to regulate electronic cigarettes and related products in a manner consistent with its mission of protecting the public health.
Hookah sticks come in a wide variety of flavors which is currently continuously expanding.
By law as of now you can smoke a hookah stick, E-cig, portable pen stick anywhere private or in public.  However in private places of business they are allowed to exercise their own discretion of permitting or prohibiting Hookah sticks, E-cigs, portable pen sticks.
Yes, although  just as some business will use their discretion as to whether or not to let people smoke their E- Cig/E-Hookah in their place of business we would presume airlines will follow suit.
Theoretically yes! but we do recommend asking permission at any business related establishment.
Please refer to last question and answer: We recommend asking permission before.

No, but you might run into issues with customs that will result in paying duties/taxes.

For some individuals it can be a great replacement as some do contain nicotine and can give that tinge that cigarettes give. As a person weans of the nicotine they can continue smoking hookah sticks without nicotine.

It is either because of the 5 sec auto shut off or it’s depleted of puffs.

They have the same attributes but hookah sticks have much better flavors.
As of now the best overall hookah sticks is the “Bastone” and in close 2nd “Imperial” as the second public choice.
Price ranges from $7.00 to $75.00 depending on the amount of puffs, quality, refillable, rechargeable.
Refillable hookah sticks are those which you purchase liquid separately to poor into the stick. FYI: refillable sticks are also rechargeable. Rechargeable sticks you buy the cartridges by the pack “to refill” your stick.
Yes, but only with the refillable sticks; you can purchase different flavors and then mix them into your stick.

If the light lights up and you are getting smoke, it should be working just fine.

Refillable hookah sticks/refillable e-cigs are more likely to be able to be fixed;depending on the severity of the issue.

FDA has not evaluated any e-cigarettes for safety or effectiveness. When FDA conducted limited laboratory studies of certain samples, FDA found significant quality issues that indicate that quality control processes used to manufacture these products are substandard or non-existent. FDA found that cartridges labeled as containing no nicotine contained nicotine and that three different electronic cigarette cartridges with the same label emitted a markedly different amount of nicotine with each puff. Experts have also raised concerns that the marketing of products such as e-cigarettes can increase nicotine addiction among young people and may lead kids to try other tobacco products.

FDA issued warning letters to five distributors of electronic cigarettes for violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA).  These violations included unsubstantiated claims and poor manufacturing practices.

Taste, in theory the actual devices are the same, the only real difference is typically the taste and nicotine content.

well it depends on the items you typically use to smoke your hookah. If you use hookah tobacco and regular quicklight charcoals, then yes hookah sticks are way healthier being that you take out the tobacco and any affects from the charcoals. If you smoke your hookah with coconut coals and regular tobacco hookah sticks are still better. If you smoke with herbal shisha and regular charcoal hookah sticks are better. If you smoke with vapor stones and coconut coals or the electronic charcoals then it is essentially the same thing because you are vaporizing molasses, no tobacco etc.  

the clouds of smoke are larger and you are able to mix your own flavors, so many say yes.

too much of anything is bad for you. It is recommended to rely on the reputable brands as they have the best quality control and only include water and fruit flavoring into their sticks (nicotine into some as well where noted).

no, but if you puff on it like crazy and blow into the smoke alarm while standing on a chair…it will, we tried it 🙂

people smoke cigarettes for the nicotine, hookah sticks and e hookah and ecigs offer the nicotine without the 4,000 other chemicals cigarettes have. Similar to the patch and gum, Hookah Sticks with Nicotine offer the nicotine the smoker craves while also imitating the motion, allowing for the smoker to fulfill their oral fixation.
