The IQOS cigarette is a Heat Not Burn device from Philip Morris that heats the tobacco instead of burning it and thus offers a lower-polluting smoking experience and thus a good alternative to cigarettes or e-cigarettes.

The IQOS Australia consumers have a special code of behavior. To use the IQOS, the HEETS Tobacco Stick is required instead of the liquid in an e-cigarette. This is offered in different flavors.

The IQOS device is currently available in two different versions: The Starter Kit 2.4 and the Iqos 3. Both types are suitable for “vaping”, but the successor model 3.0 is more robust and technically better than the Iqos 2.4 kit.

How does the IQOS cigarette work?

The user must ensure that the holder is sufficiently charged. Then the tobacco stick is simply inserted into the device and “steamed” by pressing the button. This process is known as Heat Control Technology. This creates vapors that can be inhaled by the smokers. The IQOS Australia consumers have a special inhaling style.

The IQOS must be charged regularly in order to be able to use it. Cleaning is also necessary from time to time. In addition to the typical smell of cigarettes, the yellowish discolouration of fingers, teeth and walls does not appear.

What is the difference between IQOS and an e-cigarette?

While an e-cigarette requires liquids, the IQOS uses HEETS tobacco sticks. These are heated evenly and thus the taste experience remains constant. The e-cigarette also produces a lot of smoke, which can annoy passers-by and which is largely absent with an IQOS. The IQOS device is also not subject to the smoking ban, as no tobacco is burned, and use in a restaurant is therefore also permitted in most cases. However, it is advisable to ask the staff for permission.

The smoker needs a holder which shape is reminiscent of a cigarette. In addition, the HEETS Tobacco Sticks, which contain the tobacco and must be replaced with each use, are important. The purchase also includes a charger, the so-called pocket charger, which is also a kind of storage box. A special cleaning set is also included to clean the device at regular intervals.
