IQOS Frequently Asked Questions

What is IQOS?

IQOS is an alternative for adult smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke and want to enjoy real tobacco taste without many of the inconveniences of cigarettes, such as ash or smoke. It is not for people who have quit smoking or have never smoked.

IQOS is our most advanced smoke-free product that uses sophisticated electronics to heat tobacco instead of burning it to release a flavourful nicotine containing vapour.

Does IQOS produce smoke?

No, IQOS does not produce smoke because it does not burn tobacco. It generates a tobacco vapour that is what you see when using IQOS

Can I use cigarettes with IQOS devices?

No you should not. IQOS device has been designed to work exclusively with HEETS tobacco sticks, and vice versa.

It is only by using both together that you can take full advantage of the benefits that the system provides and that have been proven by PMI Science. All our studies are based on the use of IQOS with HEETS tobacco sticks.

What is the difference between cigarettes and IQOS?

IQOS provides real tobacco taste without fire, ash or cigarette smoke, and less smell.

IQOS generates a nicotine containing tobacco vapour. IQOS emits on average 95% lower levels of harmful chemicals compared to cigarettes.*

Switching completely to IQOS is likely to present less risk to your health than continuing to smoke. However, IQOS is not risk-free and is addictive. If you are concerned about the health effects of smoking, your best option is to quit tobacco and nicotine use altogether.

Getting started with iQOS

1. Load Open the iQOS Pocket Charger by pressing the hatch button 1 then load your iQOS Holder into the iQOS Pocket Charger and ensure that iQOS Holder contacts 10 are face down. The iQOS Holder button 8 must be facing the hatch button of the iQOS Pocket Charger, then close the hatch manually.
You should not put pressure on the iQOS Holder while inserting it in the iQOS Pocket Charger. If you feel a resistance and persist your iQOS Holder will be misaligned and will not charge. If misaligned, your iQOS Holder will not charge. To remove it from the iQOS Pocket Charger, just pull it out firmly, align and load it back into the iQOS Pocket Charger.

2. Plug Take the USB cable provided, plug the USB end into the iQOS USB Power Adaptor, and plug the micro USB end into iQOS Pocket Charger Micro USB Charging Port 5 . Then, connect the iQOS USB Power Adaptor to an electrical outlet. You can also connect the USB end of the USB cable to any USB port to charge your iQOS Pocket Charger and iQOS Holder. However please note that charging via a laptop or a USB receiver will significantly increase the charging time.

3. Switch ON/OFF and charge Now that your iQOS System is plugged into an energy source, you must switch ON the iQOS System by pressing the iQOS Pocket Charger power button 4 for 3 seconds. iQOS Pocket Charger LEDs display 2.1 + 2.2 will be activated and you will see on the iQOS Pocket Charger that LEDs are blinking green, this is to inform you the iQOS System is charging. Your iQOS Holder will be charged and ready to be used in up to 6 minutes. Your iQOS Pocket Charger will be partially charged after around 45 minutes and fully charged after around 90 minutes. To switch OFF your iQOS System press and hold the iQOS Pocket Charger power button 4 for 5 seconds. The iQOS Holder and iQOS Pocket Charger will switch to OFF mode and it means that no automatic heater clean will be performed at this time. A partial charge of your iQOS Pocket Charger is enough for a few recharges of your iQOS Holder but it will not be enough to recharge your iQOS Holder 20 times.

4. Your first HeatStick (sold separately) Only use HeatStick with the iQOS Holder. Never use a cigarette or other products/objects, doing so will void your ‘Warranty’. iQOS Holder works exclusively and uniquely with HeatSticks. Never light a HeatStick with a match, lighter or any other flame source. Heatsticks are made of a filter and a tobacco plug. After use you may notice some spots or discoloration on the HeatStick. This occurs during the course of normal usage.

How to use iQOS?

First thing to do Remove your charged iQOS Holder from the iQOS Pocket Charger. Insert a HeatStick into your iQOS Holder tobacco-side down. Never twist or remove a HeatStick before fully pulling up/out the cap 12 from the iQOS Holder. Doing so will severely damage your iQOS Holder’s heater. Check that the HeatStick is inserted correctly by having the HeatStick filter aligned with the top of the iQOS Holder cap

1. Press and hold the iQOS Holder button 8 for 2 seconds, then the iQOS Holder button LED 11 will blink green to heat the tobacco plug at the optimal temperature for up to 20 seconds.

2. When the iQOS Holder button LED remains solid green, you can enjoy your HeatStick for up to approximately 6 minutes or 14 puffs.

3. After around 5 ½ minutes, the last 30 seconds before the experience ends, the iQOS Holder button LED will switch to a solid orange .

4. When the iQOS Holder button LED goes off, the experience is finished. If your iQOS Holder turns itself OFF while you puff, it is to prevent overheating of the HeatStick. Heavy or rapid puffing will cause the iQOS Holder to automatically reduce the heat or to shut down. Should this happen, remove the used HeatStick, dispose of it, and recharge your iQOS Holder. It is normal for your iQOS Holder to become warm during use as the HeatStick tobacco plug is heated by the iQOS Holder’s heater.

5. Remove your HeatStick from iQOS Holder Now that your experience is over, you have to remove the HeatStick from your iQOS Holder. This can be done in two steps: the first Step 1 is to pull up the cap 12 from your iQOS Holder until it stops; the second Step 2 is to pull out the used HeatStick from the cap.

HeatSticks can be disposed of with normal waste. Be informed that you can also completely remove the cap 12 from your iQOS Holder body 9 to remove a HeatStick. If you do so, please pay attention to align the cap with the iQOS Holder button 8 when you put the cap back onto the iQOS Holder.

You can switch OFF your iQOS Holder experience at any moment, to do so press and hold the iQOS Holder button for 3 seconds, it will then switch OFF. You can’t resume it and you must dispose of the HeatStick with normal waste. Then load back your iQOS Holder in the iQOS Pocket Charger to be recharged.

Please note that the removal of the HeatStick will not end the heating process of your iQOS Holder. Since your iQOS does not burn tobacco, there will be less odour on your clothes.

Removing HeatStick fragments

Sometimes a part of a HeatStick will remain stuck in your iQOS Holder cap 12 . Most of time, this is happening when you do not pull the iQOS Holder cap before removing the HeatStick. To remove it, please do the following:

-1 Pull out the cleaning hook from your iQOS Cleaner long brush
-2 Completely remove the cap from the iQOS Holder.

If required, the iQOS Holder cap can be cleaned by immersing it in warm water for 5 minutes. This will completely remove residue which can build up over time. Always ensure clean warm drinking water is used and that the cap is completely dry before re-using it with your iQOS Holder.

-3 Insert the cleaning hook into the Holder’s cap, then clean using a twisting and an up-and-down motion. Remove the cleaning hook from the iQOS Holder’s cap, gently tap both sides of the iQOS Holder’s cap to loosen and release any tobacco fragments. Repeat until clean.

Is IQOS warm?

Especially in winter, but also during the cold summer nights, the holder can easily cool down, it is very sensitive to temperature changes. Take it in your hand and, if it's cold, warm it up and then try charging it again.

If the holder is properly plugged in, the cover is closed and the red light is on, connect the charging base. Sometimes it signals one or two dots, but it is already exhausted.
Try resetting both IQOS parts, reset the charging base by pressing the Bluetooth button and the switch, reset the holder after discharging by holding down the button for a long time until it goes out.
Clean the holder at the bottom, the touchpads get dirty sometimes and do not fit properly on the connectors, with plain rubber for example. You can blow up the base where there may be dirt, dust, or scraps of tobacco.
The last advice sounds strange. Wait until you will have withdrawal symptoms. I know a lot of examples where the device start works normally after a few minutes (sometimes hours), and then it works simply as if nothing has happened.

IQOS complaint

Nobody wants this last step. But if you are sure, that you checked and tried everything and nothing worked, you should complain the device. The IQOS complaint can be done in branded shops, pop-up stalls, and the Geco or Valmont shops while you wait. IQOS is exchanged for one piece per piece without more fault detection.

Complaints at IQOS brand stores and in pop-up stalls in shopping centers.
Complaints by calling the IQOS Customer Center.
While claiming you just need to have an IQOS device registered to your account, you do not need a bill or a box. Only have one defective device, the worker will fill in the protocol with you, the Complaint Department will later disconnect the original device from your account and attach new ones. The operation takes only a few minutes.
