What is IQOS?
IQOS heated tobacco products are the perfect alternative to smoking for those that are looking for an authentic tobacco experience to replace traditional cigarettes.
These devices gently heat tobacco to release nicotine without burning the tobacco, which eliminates the harmful combustion process that occurs during traditional smoking.
Heated tobacco kits are ideal for smokers that enjoy the taste of real tobacco, but without the smoke.
Unlike with vaping, these IQOS kits do not use liquids or coils, these heated tobacco devices produce a vapor from warming up the tobacco to provide a cigarette style familiarity with reduced risks when compared to smoking.
Heat-not-burn technology by IQOS has revolutionised the way we think about tobacco.
The IQOS uses a specially designed leaf tobacco ideal for being warmed up and not burned, these are called HEETS and are available in a wide variety of flavours such as robust tobaccos and menthol tobaccos.
When compared to smoking, the IQOS heated tobacco devices produce 95% fewer harmful chemicals during the heating process in comparison to burning a traditional cigarette.
How do heated tobacco kits work?
Through a process sometimes referred to as “heat-not-burn", these heated tobacco devices simply warm up the real tobacco to product a vapor without the harmful combustion process.
These kits are rechargeable, similar to reusable vape kits.
Specially designed heated tobacco sticks (HEETS) are made to be able to be heated by these devices without burning the tobacco.
The IQOS Pocket Charger (the main hub that stores and charger your holder) once fully charged contains 20 uses for the IQOS Holder (where the HEETS tobacco sticks are inserted for use).
Simply insert the Holder into the Pocket Charger after each session to recharge the Holder. Once the Pocket Charger has used its 20 charges, use the IQOS AC Power Adaptor with IQOS USB C Cable to recharge the Pocket Charger.
We recommend cleaning your IQOS Holder in-between sessions before recharging inside the Pocket Charger to keep it clean and fully functional at all times. These kits come with a handy IQOS cleaning device as well as IQOS cleaning sticks.
Whilst the Pocket Charger does not require a full charge to function, it’s recommended that the device is fully charged before the first use.
IQOS Duo 3 kits:
The new IQOS Duo 3 has been finely tuned to suit the needs of adults looking to quit smoking without missing out on the taste of tobacco.
These kits are available in a variety of colours, so there’s something for everyone in the range.
Always ready, the IQOS Duo 3 Holder can be charged once in the Pocket Charger for two sessions before it needs to be recharged again, making it the ideal choice for chain smokers looking to quit with a product that can be used consecutively before needing a recharge.
Designed with convenience in mind, the new IQOS 3 Duo has the fastest and most powerful IQOS Holder within the series of IQOS products – at least 2 minutes and 20 seconds faster than when charging an IQOS Holder inside the IQOS 2.4+ model.
Checking how much charge the Pocket Charger has remaining is nice and simple, pressing and releasing the Pocket Charger button will present a light pattern. Four LEDs indicates that the Pocket Charger is more than 75% charged, whilst 1 LED indicates that the Pocket Charger is low and needs to be recharged.
To ensure the person(s) purchasing an IQOS device is over the age of 18 years old, customers are required to provide information which will be input into the IQOS system database. This information is stored by IQOS as part of the warranty on the device also.
Information required by IQOS includes your full name, date of birth, home address, email address, and telephone number. This data is essential for the purchase of an IQOS device and one cannot be purchased without information for the IQOS system.
