How should I use an IQOS device?

IQOS is the new way to enjoy real tobacco: At IQOS, a specially designed tobacco stick with real tobacco ("HEETS") is heated to a precisely controlled temperature range of up to 350ºC using a patented heating system ("HeatControl ™ technology"). This creates a nicotine-containing tobacco aerosol with the taste of real tobacco ("tobacco vapor") that can be consumed.

To use IQOS, a HEETS tobacco stick is inserted into the heating system ("holder") and heated by a lithium battery at the push of a button. Once the optimal temperature has been reached, the HEETS tobacco stick can be consumed. The duration of consumption corresponds roughly to that of a cigarette.

For more details and information on how to use IQOS correctly, see Getting started.
