Well, if carbon is carbon, I guess you can put a lump of charcoal in a ring and call it a "diamond ring."
No, charcoal briquettes are not activated charcoal. They will have some activity, but not like actual activated carbon or activated charcoal. But you can make activated carbon from them:
Thank you very much. You are absolutely right. It is sharing information with people like you that lead me to join this group.

I disagree with you, but to address Robin's concerns, there are very cheap sources of activated charcoal.

Charcoal briquettes often have other substances in them--like hydrocarbon accellerants--to help them burn better.

Activated charcoal from the pet store (used in aquaria) is better.
You are right.

I always thought I was prepping for economic collapse, or an EMP/MCE, but it has become very apparent that the greatest threat is the radical left. They are attacking any opposition on all fronts, verbally, mentally, and physically. They face ZERO prosecution, and if you fight back at all, they arrest you and prosecute you fully, while calling you a domestic terrorist.

pins and needles are just one of the multitude of simple - but SHTF crucial items - that are no longer made in the USA - the wire they are made from isn't even readily available >> it'll be a good trade item
