What does IQOS mean?
IQOS is not an acronym but a brand name, created to denote an innovative product.



There are currently sold three versions of IQOS, the older IQOS 2.4. and the newest IQOS 3 and IQOS Multi. From the tobacco use point of view, all are the same. New versions have improved battery usage and battery life. You can find all the information needed in the Reviews section. Also, there are many articled about it in the IQOS 3 section.

IQOS 3 Multi

Absolute innovation comes with IQOS 3 Multi with re-use. This is a single piece of equipment into which the HEETS cartridge is directly inserted and can be used repeatedly for up to 10 uses. Clearly developed as a reaction to competitive GLO to eliminate its only benefit without having to wait for recharging. Its size has been reduced so it would fit in the hand perfectly. Due to the smaller size, it has a smaller battery so a faster USB-C charging had to be added.

IQOS 3.0 and MULTI

The two most recent versions of IQOS, branded as 3.0 and MULTI with re-use. Both versions were introduced in attractive metallic colours. The first one resembles the current version, but the charging time has been shortened by 15%, the novelty will be the IQOS Multi with re-use, which aims to take down the competing GLO.

IQOS 3.0

The successor to the current version of 2.4 Plus comes with brand 3.0 and in several attractive colours, mostly gold. The concept of a separate holder has been preserved, but the charger is inserted from the side, it will not be necessary to seek the right angle as it is held by a magnet. Thanks to this, the new IQOS will not be compatible with the previous accessories. The other is a charger with a modern USB-C connector. The charging time was shortened by 15% and the duration has been doubled by 24.700 cycles. The holder will still need to be charged after each use, but its charging has also been cut down to 3 and a half minutes.

The new IQOS 3 now only has one button, because Bluetooth has probably been removed due to insufficient usage, which we probably will not regret because the application has never been officially released for download (if you are interested.

IQOS 3 comes in four basic colours - gold, blue, black and white, and not only the top cover but also the charger cover is replaceable so you can come up with your own colour variation which suits you best.

About IQOS Multi Device

IQOS which is an advanced smoke-free product uses sophisticated electronics to heat tobacco in order to release flavors and nicotine.
While the idea of heating tobacco (instead of burning it) has been around for more than two decades, it took years of research and development to create a product that is satisfying to adult consumers. Around 7.3 million consumers have already chosen to switch from cigarettes to this product: our tobacco heating system IQOS.
At the heart of IQOS are sophisticated electronics that heat specially designed heated tobacco units. IQOS heats the tobacco just enough to release a flavorful nicotine-containing tobacco vapor but without burning the tobacco.
Heres the key point: the tobacco in a cigarette burns at temperatures in excess of 600C, generating smoke that contains high levels of harmful chemicals. But IQOS heats tobacco to much lower temperatures, up to 350C, without combustion, fire, ash, or smoke. The lower temperature heating releases the true taste of heated tobacco. Because the tobacco is heated and not burned, the levels of harmful chemicals are significantly reduced compared to cigarette smoke.
What is there? A nicotine-containing vapor not smoke that makes IQOS a smoke-free product that is appealing to smokers. How does IQOS work?
IQOS is a tobacco heating system available in two versions. The first has three main components a heated tobacco unit (called HEETS or HeatSticks), an IQOS holder, and a charger. The second is an integrated product that combines the holder and charger and allows multiple uses without recharging the battery.
Both work in the same way: a consumer inserts the heated tobacco unit into the IQOS holder, which contains an electronically controlled heater.
The consumer pushes a button to turn on the heater, and then draws on the heated tobacco unit to enjoy the real taste of heated tobacco. Once the heated tobacco unit is finished, the consumer removes it from the holder, and then it can be disposed of safely in a waste bin. After each experience, the consumer recharges the holder by inserting it into the charger. Play

The heated tobacco unit contains a uniquely processed tobacco plug designed for heating, not for smoking. The tobacco plug is made from tobacco leaves, which are ground and re-constituted into tobacco sheets, called cast-leaf. These sheets are then crimped and made into a tobacco plug.
The holder, into which the heated tobacco unit is inserted, heats the tobacco via an electronically controlled heating blade. The blade simultaneously heats the tobacco to temperatures up to 350C, while monitoring its temperature to ensure a consistent taste experience and to avoid burning. It also has an over-heating protection mechanism, which turns itself off if necessary. The holder supplies heat to the heated tobacco unit via the heating blade for six minutes or 14 puffs, whichever comes first.
After each heated tobacco unit experience with the original three component heating system, the small battery in the holder needs to be recharged by inserting it into the charger. The charger itself can be recharged from household power sockets. The integrated version must be charged after ten consecutive uses.

How to proceed with an IQOS malfunction

Verify that the holder is correctly and freely plugged into the charger, always with a light towards the opening. Never pull him with force.

Is IQOS warm or IQOS not pulling?

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 IQOS 3 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.

Freeze IQOS? We do not recommend it

There are various mad guides on the Internet that you should put IQOS into the freezer, for example. We do not recommend these solutions, IQOS does not like the cold, it damages the battery, and we think it is only wetting the contacts for short time, which will not solve the problem.

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.

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.

IQOS heating problem | Why isnt my IQOS heating properly?

If the device is dirty your IQOS may not be heating up properly. If too much debris accumulates inside the holder it can prevent the heating blade from making full contact with the HEETS stick, which will result in an unsatisfying HEETS experience. You need clean the device at least once a day. Cleaning the holder removes and tobacco build up inside the holder and on the blade. Moreover if the holder is not making contact and engaging properly the device will not heat properly.

The IQOS flashes red and stopped charging, how to fix or claim Does the IQOS charger or holder flash with a red light?

This may be a defect that you remove at home or will need a complaint at the IQOS Store, a sales representative or an IQOS PopUp stand.

IQOS Tips

How to improve HEETS quality and What are IQOS heets problems
But because almost no one will want to run to reclaim the box, try our tips.

- It is important to have a cleaned heater, especially scratched sediments from the root of the slab.
- You can insert the cartridge after turning it on in the warm-up holder, the hot plantain goes through the tobacco like butter.
- You can try to rub the tobacco part of the cartridge between your fingers, be careful not to break it, it's easy, it is only one centimeter long, the rest is a filter.
- Try blow out the cartridge from the side of tobacco, some users are saying, it stretches better.
- The refill can be snapped during the coating, rotated by 90 and reintroduced, sometimes more smoke starts.
- Some users are recommending freeze HEETS. After several hours in the freezer and then warming at room temperature, it is supposed to be wet.
- Whoever remembers socialist cigarettes, he remembers licking the side of the cigarette for moistening. It works well with HEETS, just do not overdo it, if you do, the smoke is as hot as from the boiler.

Keep in mind that this is very individual. Someone does not smoke without freezing, another swears that HEETS never has a problem, others claim that they are defective pieces in each box. Write us the comment about what experience you have!

How to take care of IQOS in winter and protect it from cold and frost
During the winter or the cold autumn nights, every electronics deserves more attention. IQOS is very for delicate to temperature changes, we recommend you take special care of it. Like any battery-powered electronics, IQOS does not like frost and cold. During use, I have noticed that the smoke is cooler better and gives even better enjoyment, but the charger itself, like a cell phone, can be damaged in winter.
Normally, you can see that the heater starts blinking red - just warm it up, return it to the charger and let it recharge it again. Usually, it is ready for use again in a minute.


- Keep IQOS at an acceptable temperature, better than in the bag keep it in the pocket on the body.
- During heating IQOS warms up your hands, pay it back and return holder to the rechargeable base soon.
- Do not leave IQOS in unheated areas, in a cold car or outdoors on the table.
- If IQOS gets cold, do not heat it quickly, for example on heating.

How to activate and adjust vibration after charging the holder
Once you've connected IQOS to your Bluetooth mobile phone, you can set up additional features. However, in the latest version, the vibration settings of the holder are missing after charging in the base. We advise you to turn on the missing property.
After long development, IQOS Connect was finally completed. The previous version, however, for devices with the latest firmware (especially limited editions) offered vibration settings after recharging the holder but not published. By using our instructions, you can still activate the vibration.

IQOS Pairing

Does the IQOS produce smoke?

No, because the tobacco is only heated so there is no persistent smoke like a regular cigarette.

How long does one HEET last?

Your HEETS will last approximately 6 minutes.

How many HEETS are in a pack?

There are 20 called HEETS sticks in a pack.

I cannot insert the HEET into the holder.

Make sure that the heating chamber is clear from any debris.

What are the different HEETS flavours?


- Amber A rounded and rich tobacco flavour
- Sienna Intense and full bodied tobacco flavour
- Yellow A smooth and finely balanced tobacco flavour
- Turquoise A mild menthol tobacco flavour
- Blue A very intense menthol tobacco flavour

What temperature does the IQOS heat up to?

The temperature is crucial and the IQOS heats up to around 350C. It heats up enough to allow the tobacco to produce warm vapour but not quite high enough to actually burn the tobacco.

Tobacco filling - HEETS

Tobacco is heated in the holder, which you need to return to the base after each cigarette and charges for another use for about 4 minutes. It is similar to a smaller electronic cigarette but does not heat the liquid, IQOS works with real tobacco. The HEETS filling user must press on the holder, where is heated blade created with gold and ceramics. By holding the IQOS button it starts to heat and then after about 15 seconds starts heating the tobacco for 6 minutes or for 14 puffs. As soon as the charging occurs, the holder vibrates and shuts off after another 30 seconds. The cartridge is removed by removing the upper part of the mouthpiece and discarded.

The Holder should be cleaned once a day with the attached egg-shaped scrubber with the built-in brush, that removes a small amount of tobacco. During heating, nicotine impurities are also deposited, so once a week clean device also with alcohol sticks that you can buy at every HEETS seller.

IQOS HeatControl Technology

IQOS is a tobacco heating system composed of 3 key elements: Holder, Pocket Charger and specifically designed tobacco sticks. IQOS is designed exclusively for adult smokers who want to continue enjoying tobacco products.

The Holder has a unique heating blade made of gold and platinum, coated in ceramic, and contains cutting-edge electronics which regulate the heat for a consistent experience every time.

IQOS heats tobacco rather than burning it. Special electronics in the Holder heat the tobacco in the tobacco stick to temperatures below 350C without burning it. Generates a flavorful nicotine-containing aerosol. Real tobacco taste without fire, ash or cigarette smoke and less smell.

Tobacco reaches precisely controlled temperature range, below 350C degrees. The device generates an aerosol with real tobacco taste without fire, ash or cigarette smoke and less smell. The aerosol contains lower levels of harmful and potentially harmful chemicals than cigarette smoke.

How does IQOS taste?

The taste of menthol is very standard. The taste is simply different. Heated fillings have oddly smell - like going past a bakery, where the baker just tell to the students that they lightly burned the morning rolls in the oven. But from the first moment, the bitterness of burned tar smells and ash are missing. Once you have done this, you will pull out the hot block and drop it into a crystal-clean ashtray. After a minute no smudge, perhaps only the smoked HEETS still resemble baked bread.

How smoking works without burning

Cigarette IQOS, abbreviated as I Quit Ordinary Smoking, is a product developed by Philips Morris, a producer of, for example, Marlboro cigarettes. The manufacturer himself says he has set himself the goal of reducing the health trouble for his customers.

Inserted HEETS filling is heated to about 350 C, compared to burning in a conventional cigarette in the range of 600-850 C. During heating, nicotine from the tobacco begins to release along with glycerin, its inhalation is then very similar to the classic taste of cigarettes, but the smoker exhales a pure, odorless steam which at the moment dissolves.

How to determine the battery status in the holder

The holder of the passionate smoker daily goes through about twenty charges, the battery is frequent charging adjusted. During use, its life will, of course, be shortened. Whether it's okay to find out easily:
Recharge the holder in the IQOS charger
Remove it from the charger and prepare the stopwatch (for example in your mobile phone)
Turn on the empty holder normally without HEETS
Simultaneously activate the stopwatch
Time is measured till full discharge when the holder itself goes out
If the battery is OK, you will reach approximately 5:40 to 6:00 minutes
When the end of battery life approaches, the holder can be used normally, but it starts to blink in red instead of normal white when charging.

The battery in the charger and holder is guaranteed by law for 12 months. IQOS has not been on the market for even a year. Philip Morris has yet solved all of the problems with the instant exchange without any problems. It is not yet clear how the post-warranty service will be solved after a two-year warranty. Experience from abroad suggests that IQOS is exchanged even after the warranty.

The contents of the IQOS sales package

IQOS is available in 2018 mostly in the form of dealer sales, which will showcase it during the meeting and teach the customer about handling and functions. Another option is to buy IQOS in newspaper stand or IQOS Stores.
