You may have just purchased your first IQOS. There is much more to it than you realize, from charging the Charger, charging the Holder, loading HEETS, cleaning, and maintaining – this guide will show you how to do it all.
Introduction To IQOS
IQOS uses HEETS, which are specially-made tobacco sticks. The IQOS system heats the HEETS to produce a nicotine-containing vapor. It produces a cigarette that tastes like real tobacco but is up to 95% cheaper than smoking tobacco. Cigarettes produce tar; IQOS doesn't. You can check heets online.
Other benefits to using IQOS instead of smoking cigarettes:
- A pack of 20 cigarettes costs less than half as much. Heets are priced at PS5 per 20-pack.
- On average, it emits 95% fewer harmful chemicals.
- Average 98% less carbon monoxide production (CO)
- It does not produce tar.
- No stains left on fingers
- No fire, no ash, no smoke.
- Better breath and lung function
- Available widely
What's Inside The Box?
From left to right
- 1 x IQOS Originals Duo holder – This is where you put your HEETS tobacco sticks
- 1 x IQOS Originals Pocket Charger – Charges your Holder and stores enough charge to buy an entire set of HEETS
- 1 x Dual Cleaning Tools
- 1 x Box Cleaning Sticks
- 1 x Power Adaptor
- 1 x USB Type-C Charging Cable
Step 1 – Check & Charge
You will first need to verify the charge on your IQOS duo charger. Locate the Charger button at the top of your Duo Charger. Hold the button down for four seconds. The IQOS Duo Charger's status light should appear to be extended. If there are no lights, your kit needs to be charged before you can use it.
Use the Type C USB charger with a power adaptor to charge your kit. It will take approximately 2 hours for the IQOS Pocket Charger to fully charge. This will give you, on average, 20 sessions and one full-pack HEETS.
Step 2 – Pop In A HEETS
Now, let's get to the fun part. Grab your Holder from the Charger. Hold a HEETS stick from your pack, and press the tobacco side into the Holder until it reaches the filter.
The heating process must be started next. You will feel the Holder vibrate when you press the button. The indicator button should pulse with 1 or 2 lights depending on the charge.
The Holder will heat the HEETS stick. Once the Holder is ready, it will vibrate two times. You can now start puffing on Filter tip HEET like you would with a regular cigarette.
Step 3 – Cleaning
Although HEETS tobacco sticks don't burn, tobacco residue may build up in the IQOS Holder. You can ensure your device runs smoothly by giving it regularly, quick TLC. IQOS recommends cleaning your Holder after each pack of HEETS (20 cigarette sticks). A multi-functional cleaning brush and a set of cleaning sticks are included with every IQOS.
Here are some ways to use them.
Let the device cool off for about 30 seconds.
Take off the Cap from the Holder and gently tap any tobacco left there.
The Dual Cleaning Tool will be next to clean any residue on the Holder's heating element. Remove the Cap and place the Rotating Head Cleaner from the Dual Cleaning Tool in the Holder. Turn the Holder gently for a few seconds.
The Cap on the other end can be removed, and the Sweeping head of the Dual Cleaning Tools can be inserted into the Holder. Move it gently from left to right.
To remove any residue on the Holder's interior, insert the Cleaning Stick. The Cleaning Stick should not be used on the Heating Elements.
