The IQOS system consists of tobacco sticks "Heets" and an electronic device that heats the tobacco.
The satisfaction of real tobacco. No smoke, no ash, less odor.
IQOS is an electronic device to heat specially designed HEETS tobacco sticks to temperatures just below 350 °C, without combustion, fire, ash, or smoke. This releases a nicotine-containing vape or aerosol, with the authentic taste of real tobacco. Because no combustion takes place, the amount of harmful substances is considerably reduced compared to cigarette smoke. This makes IQOS a smokefree product that is very attractive for adult smokers. Millions of smokers worldwide have already switched to heating tobacco with IQOS.
IQOS is a system for heating tobacco. This is the main difference with a traditional cigarette: the tobacco in a cigarette is burned at temperatures above 800 ° C and generates smoke that contains many harmful substances. IQOS heats tobacco to much lower temperatures, up to 350 °C, without combustion, fire, ash or smoke. And because the tobacco is heated instead of burned, the levels of harmful substances in the aerosol of IQOS are considerably reduced compared to cigarette smoke. However, the use of IQOS is not risk free. The aerosol contains nicotine and is therefore addictive.
