    It seems like its main purpose is for the making of fireworks, the kind that explode and make pretty colors, not the kind you use to fly.

    Although I agree that it would be nice if you could us a fire charge in your hand and get a fireball, instead of it being a very expensive and one-time use flint and steel.

    I think you might be confusing fire charges with firework stars.

    I would support adding fire charges as a throwable item as long as it was accompanied by a decent cooldown.

    It would be so fun once you got a good supply of gunpowder and blaze rods :D

    Me?  I guess I left out a step, but fire charges are made into firework stars, which make the fancy type fireworks.

    I think there should be a cooldown of 3 seconds

    What if it acted as a temporary fire aspect?
    You would craft your sword or axe with a fire charge, you would get a 5 minute enchantment for fire aspect. 
    simple as that

    With the addition of crossbows and them being able to fire fireworks making them shoot fire charges would be great.

    This is a great idea, as fire charges are useless when compared to flint and steel. They should be throwable, with a cooldown like the enderpearl

    Maybe fire charges could be used inside of the firework recipe (not the firework star recipe) to increase damage? Fireworks as ammunition in crossbows does not make crossbows an alternative to a decked out, power V bow. This could change that (of course not making it too overpowered). It would make firework ammunition worth gaining and using.

    Here's how I think throwing Fire Charges should work:

    - They have the same cooldown as the snowballs in the combat snapshots

    - Same range as a snowball

    - They should also set blocks on fire, activate portals, campfires, and ignite TNT
