Is IQOS a smoke-free product?
The answer is yes, IQOS is a smoke-free product. This is thanks to more than 430 scientists and engineers from the Philip Morris International global Research and Development Centre in Switzerland who have managed to develop IQOS, with which tobacco is heated rather than burned, as an alternative to traditional tobacco products. When you use IQOS, tobacco vapour is released rather than smoke.
Although the idea of heating tobacco rather than burning it has been around for more than twenty years, many years of scientific development have been necessary to achieve this product based on heat-not-burn technology (which heats tobacco, avoiding combustion).
Today there are already over 10 million adult smokers around the world who have made the decision to switch to the IQOS alternative1.
How do IQOS and the tobacco heating system work?
IQOS is a better alternative to conventional tobacco products on the market, although it is not completely risk-free. Inside each IQOS device there is sophisticated technology (IQOS HeatControl) that heats the specially designed tobacco units. Each device warms the tobacco to the precise level that generates a vapour containing nicotine, but without actually burning it at any point.
As a result, one of the differentiating factors that the heat-not-burn technology developed by Philip Morris brings is this: the tobacco in a traditional cigarette burns at a temperature of 800ºC and, as such, it generates smoke. IQOS, on the other hand, does not reach such high temperatures, because it heats the tobacco at a far lower temperature, up to a maximum of 350ºC, at which combustion does not happen, and there is no fire, ash or smoke.
What are the advantages of the IQOS heating system?
IQOS’ heat-not-burn technology produces a tobacco vapour that contains nicotine and dissipates more quickly than cigarette smoke, making it a smoke-free product that boasts many advantages compared to traditional cigarettes:
- Goodbye combustion: Given that there is no lit end, with IQOS there is no risk of burning people around you, or pets, clothing or furniture, unlike with cigarettes.
- No more smoke: Unlike traditional cigarettes, IQOS does not burn the tobacco, and therefore does not produce smoke.
- No ash: Because there is no combustion, IQOS does not generate ash.
- Less smell: IQOS leaves a less persistent odour on your hands, hair and clothes than cigarette smoke.
In addition, the fact that IQOS HeatControl technology prevents the tobacco from burning, means that it significantly reduces the amount of toxic substances generated and inhaled compared to cigarette smoke. On this subject, don’t forget that smoke is a complex mix of over 6,000 chemical substances, of which almost 100 have been identified as harmful or potentially harmful.
IQOS generates, on average, a 95% less harmful chemicals compared to cigarettes.*
*Compared to the smoke of a standard reference cigarette (3R4F).

IQOS’ heat-not-burn technology, a better alternative for adult smokers
With IQOS you not only have cutting-edge technology, but you can also choose a better alternative if you’re an adult smoker and customise the devices to suit you. Find out here how to make your IQOS unique and find the accessories that best fit your style.
If you haven’t yet taken your first steps with IQOS, remember that you have available to you a whole customer service team who can help you to clarify any doubts and will advise you about the IQOS model that’s most suited to you. If, on the other hand, you prefer to do some research yourself beforehand, then the FAQs about IQOS should also be helpful.
And it’s important to remember that, if you want to try the experience at first hand, you can do so using the free loan service. The process is really simple, you just have to go to the ‘Try’ section on our website, fill out the form and an IQOS expert will get in touch with you.
Nevertheless, you must bear in mind that IQOS is not designed for or aimed at those adult smokers who want to quit consuming tobacco or nicotine. IQOS is a better alternative for adult smokers who otherwise would keep smoking or using nicotine-based products.
Now that that’s clear, you can go to the IQOS website and explore the array of options that smoke-free products offer.

US FDA decisions: a new milestone for IQOS
A key milestone: the FDA concludes that switching completely to IQOS reduces your body’s exposure to harmful or potentially harmful chemicals*
On July 7, 2020, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a government agency responsible for protecting public health, made a historic decision concerning IQOS. It authorized IQOS and three HeatSticks variants, to be commercialized in the US as a Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP), with a reduced exposure claim.
IQOS is the first and only tobacco heating system that has completed the US FDA Modified Risk Tobacco Product application process, concluding that switching completely to IQOS reduces your body’s exposure to harmful or potentially harmful chemicals*.
The FDA’s decisions came after several years of reviews of the scientific evidence available on IQOS.
After having reviewed the totality of scientific evidence available for IQOS, the US FDA concluded that:
- IQOS heats tobacco but does not burn it.
- The absence of combustion significantly reduces the production of harmful or potentially harmful chemicals.
- Scientific evidence have shown that switching completely from conventional cigarettes to IQOS significantly reduces your body’s exposure to harmful or potentially harmful chemicals**.
The FDA’s decisions shows that IQOS is a fundamentally different product compared to cigarettes. IQOS is a better choice for adults who would otherwise continue smoking. Unlike cigarettes, which burn tobacco, IQOS heats it instead. This significantly reduces the production of harmful or potentially harmful chemicals compared to cigarette smoke.
For the past 10 years, we built a team of more than 400 scientists and R&D experts and have significantly invested towards one goal: creating an alternative to cigarettes for those adult smokers who want a better choice than continued smoking.
So we are proud to celebrate this milestone on our journey, together we aim to prove ourselves step by step and continue delivering on our promises.
Important information: IQOS is not risk-free. It delivers nicotine, which is addictive.

Can IQOS help me reduce cigarette smell?
Improving the present through innovation is the main goal that drove us to invest time and resources in technological and scientific development in order for a smoke-free future to be possible. These efforts have enabled the creation of a new technology called Heat-not-burn, which is the basis of the IQOS electronic device. This system differs from traditional cigarettes for the absence of combustion: it does not burn, but heats the tobacco.
IQOS is a better alternative to burning tobacco as it offers several benefits to adult smokers, from completely eliminating smoke itself to reducing the cigarette-like smell. According to one survey, smokers who switched to IQOS say that their breath smells better and they feel more confident approaching others than they did after smoking a cigarette1. This simple yet fundamental change can significantly improve some important aspects such as smokers’ oral care and overall aesthetics compared to continuing to smoke traditional cigarettes.
How to get rid of the smell of cigarette smoke with IQOS?
Thanks to IQOS, an electronic device that does not produce any smoke or ash, you can say goodbye to cigarette smell. The innovative HeatControl™ technology heats the tobacco to a temperature of up to 350º C without burning it like conventional cigarettes do, thus it does not produce ash and the classic smell produced by cigarettes is reduced.
Advantages of IQOS: you can reduce the smell of smoke from your clothes and your life
Cigarette smoke can be annoying, not only to smokers themselves but also to the people around them. You may have wondered how to get rid of tobacco smoke from your hair, furniture or clothes: there is nothing worse than clothes that smell like tobacco smoke because it follows you all day and is perceived by those around you.
IQOS, a better alternative for adult smokers
Today, there are already more than 10 million adult smokers in the world who have switched to IQOS2, which leads us to believe that a smoke-free future is possible and that IQOS, while not without risk, is actually a better alternative for adult smokers. Moreover, IQOS is a product designed by and for the user, so it aims to continue improving in performance, durability and customization.
See for yourself how IQOS can reduce cigarette odour
Where can you buy IQOS? On our official website, or in person through the help of the IQOS store locator, you can find out where the physical IQOS stores are located and visit the one you choose.

Myths and Truths About IQOS that You Need to Know
Are you an adult smoker who is considering the switch from cigarette smoking to the IQOS tobacco heating system? In the information age, we can find claims that may need to be separated from reality. Here, we bust some of the most common myths around IQOS.
1. MYTH: IQOS burns tobacco
TRUTH: Traditional cigarettes burn tobacco; IQOS heats tobacco. Therefore, unlike cigarettes, IQOS has no risk of burning others around you, pets, clothes, and furniture as there is no lit end.
2. MYTH: Heated tocacco produces smoke
TRUTH: The IQOS tobacco heating system is the leading smokeless and non-combustible product in our current smoke-free products portfolio. Unlike cigarettes, IQOS is used to heat tobacco units without burning the tobacco; thanks to its heating system, the device does not produce smoke, but rather vapor. This means that IQOS produces less smell than cigarettes. Additionally, when using IQOS, the tobacco vapor dissipates more quickly than cigarette smoke.
3. MYTH: I can use IQOS without nicotine
TRUTH: This myth is for those who wonder what IQOS contains. IQOS is an electronic device that does not contain tobacco or nicotine. However, IQOS is used with specially designed heated tobacco units that contain nicotine, an addictive substance that occurs naturally in tobacco and is not added artificially to the tobacco units. It’s important to be aware that the use of IQOS is not without risk.
The best way to reduce tobacco-related health risks is to stop using tobacco and nicotine products altogether.
4. MYTH: I can use traditional cigarettes with my IQOS device
TRUTH: You can’t use traditional cigarettes with your IQOS device. Instead, you should use the heating tobacco units, which have been specifically designed to be heated, not burned.
5. MYTH: IQOS tobacco heating system is the same as an electronic cigarette (e-cigarette)
TRUTH: No, IQOS is not an electronic cigarette (e-cigarette). IQOS heats tobacco to generate a nicotine-containing vapor while electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) produce a vapor that usually contains nicotine without using tobacco. Both categories are alternatives to smoking which eliminate tobacco combustion when it’s used. However, the difference is that IQOS uses tobacco while electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) do not.
6. MYTH: IQOS is a tool to quit smoking or reduce your tobacco consumption
TRUTH: No, IQOS is not designed or intended for adult smokers who want to stop consuming tobacco or nicotine. IQOS is a better alternative for adult smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke or consume products with nicotine. But what does IQOS do? It heats tobacco instead of burning it, and in doing so, adult smokers who decide to switch to IQOS can get rid of many of the inconveniences related to traditional cigarettes, such smoke and ash, among others.
If you are wondering if IQOS less toxic than cigarrettes, various studies, both done internally as well as independently, show that IQOS emits on average 95% lower levels of harmful chemicals compared to cigarettes.*
*Average reductions in levels of a range of harmful chemicals (excluding nicotine) compared to the smoke of a reference cigarette (3R4F).
7. MYTH: IQOS stands for ‘I Quit Ordinary Smoking’
TRUTH: It doesn't mean that. Why is it called IQOS? It's not an acronym, but a brand name that was created to express an innovation and technology that, together with advanced science, would signal a turning point.
8. MYTH: IQOS is pronunced as if it were an acronym
TRUTH: IQOS, how is it pronounced? Its pronounced according to English phonetics (/ˈaɪkoʊs/ EYE-kohs).

Click the ‘i’ inside the circle or on the padlock on your address bar. When the pop-up window opens, select Site settings. Look for the Permissions section and select Location. Click Allow and refresh the page by dragging down. (MOBILE)
Click on the location icon on the right of the address bar and select Remove this setting for future access. Next, refresh the page and authorise es.iqos.com to use your location. (DESKTOP)

If there aren’t any stores on the map, check it's not an error by shrinking the map until the locator finds a store.
If you’ve zoomed out of the map to show the whole of Spain and the locator still isn’t showing any stores, something isn’t working right. You could try using a different browser - the store search tool works on all operating systems and the most commonly used up-to-date browsers, but if you're using an older version it might not work properly.

What makes IQOS different from vaporisers?
In order to take our place in the world of electronic cigarettes and understand the main differences with IQOS, it is interesting to take a look at how on the one hand the first vaporisers came about and, on the other, the origin and main aim of IQOS.
Electronic cigarettes and vaporisers have now been on the market for decades. They were developed with a clear aim: to offer an alternative to traditional combustion of tobacco and help smokers that wanted to leave smoke behind.
At Phillip Morris, faced with the emerging alternatives and the change taking place in the world of tobacco, we made a decision: to invest time and resources in creating a truly innovative product that would be a better choice for smokers. After 10 years of research, we finally launched an innovative product on the market that has revolutionised the industry: the IQOS device.
What is the main difference between IQOS and a vaporiser?
If you are still wondering if using IQOS is like vaping or if it’s an alternative to a vaporiser, it's important to understand the main difference between the two devices: IQOS uses tobacco and vaporisers do not, instead they use liquids. Both types of products are intended for adult smokers who are looking for a better alternative to traditional cigarettes.
The primary innovation behind IQOS is the HeatControl™ technology, which heats the tobacco rather than burning it. This seemingly simple change means that instead of smoke, a tobacco aerosol or vapor is produced, eliminating the generation of ashes and removing the risk of burning yourself and those around you.
What different types of vaporisers exist?
We can find multiple types of electronic cigarettes available on the market today, most of which use liquids, with or without nicotine, of various flavours, etc. These electronic cigarettes or vaporisers can in turn be divided up into three groups:
Disposable cigarettes (or “ciga likes”): electronic cigarettes designed for single-use or for being used with disposable capsules.
Vape pens: liquid rechargeable e-cigarettes that usually feature a tank and an atomiser.
Variable power electronic cigarettes or mods: electronic cigarettes that generally have a powerful battery and customisation options.
What are the main characteristics of IQOS devices as compared with vaporisers?
It does not use liquids, as instead do most vaporisers, instead using units of tobacco for heating that have been specially designed be heated with the IQOS device.
Its refined, rounded design and carefully-developed size make IQOS an elegant, yet practical item.
It is an ergonomic device conceived for simple, easy use.
It is pocket sized, making it perfect for carrying wherever you need it.
Its bag or tabletop charging devices are innovative, convenient and quick.
IQOS offers a full range of accessories to customise the device as you prefer.
Where can IQOS devices be found?
If you still don't have your IQOS and want to be a part of our great family, it’s time to get your own device. They are available from:
- our website, in the on-line store, where there is a full range of products available that Philip Morris has launched for adult smokers like yourself.
- authorised IQOS sales points and stores. Visit the store locator section of our website to find your nearest store.
Which is better, vaping or IQOS?
Both vaporisers and IQOS have elements in common, but they are different. In a comparison "IQOS vs. vaping" it’s not possible to provide a clear answer as to which of the two is better, however, what is clear is that the best option will always be to completely stop smoking and the consumption of nicotine. For the adult smokers who don't quit, smokeless products such as IQOS are a better alternative.
In any case, it's important to remember that the use of IQOS or vaporisers is not without risk and is solely intended for adults.
And if you are still not sure, or would like a trial period before buying your very own IQOS, you are free to use our trial service. Make a request by filling in our website form and an IQOS representative will contact you to bring you the product and explain all its advantages in person.
Don’t stay stuck in the past, the better alternative is here now: smokeless, no ash, no cigarette smoke and combustion-free... this is what IQOS is all about.
IQOS is for adults only who would in any case continue to smoke tobacco products or use products containing nicotine. IQOS is not an alternative for stopping tobacco and nicotine consumption. IQOS is not without risk. The units of tobacco for heating used with IQOS contain nicotine, which is addictive.
The best way of reducing tobacco-related health risks is to stop consuming tobacco and nicotine products entirely.

Does IQOS stain your teeth?
According to a non-clinical laboratory study carried out in Switzerland, IQOS stains your teeth significantly less than cigarettes do1.
Will using IQOS remove existing stains on my teeth?
If you are looking for a way to remove stains on teeth, IQOS is not a product designed for that. However, it can significantly reduce the chances of new stains appearing when compared to continuing to smoke. Therefore, this advantage of IQOS will be more evident after a professional dental cleaning and only after changing completely to IQOS.
Another aspect that must not be forgotten is that factors like drinking tea, coffee or wine can stain your teeth, regardless of whether you have decided to switch to IQOS or continue to smoke traditional cigarettes.
IQOS benefits are not limited to teeth stains
IQOS will make you feel more at ease when approaching other people since it affects less your breath: smokers switching to IQOS say that their breath smells better than when they smoked cigarettes2. And you will also have a better sensation in your mouth and a less unpleasant after-taste than that left by cigarettes3.
The use of IQOS produces less of a smell than cigarettes and isn't as persistent in permeating the hands, hair and clothes, meaning you are less likely to bother those around you. This is made possible by the fact that IQOS produces a tobacco vapour that dissipates more quickly than cigarette smoke, thereby eliminating the uncomfortable smell of smoke from your environment. Ultimately, making the switch to IQOS helps improve your personal image.
In addition to all the advantages already mentioned, IQOS has many others too, such as, for example, the fact of not generating ash, smoke or fire.
As it does not use combustion, IQOS does not produce ash and, consequently, does not generate smoke; instead, it produces a tobacco vapour that dissipates more quickly than cigarette smoke. Equally, as there is no lit tip, as instead there is with a cigarette, with IQOS there is also no risk of burning those around you, nor pets, clothes or furniture.
All these advantages of IQOS over traditional cigarettes are made possible by the sophisticated HeatControl™ technology, a system that, thanks to the heating plate within the device, heats the tobacco to a temperature of up to 350º, without burning it.
Start your free loan and discover the advantages of IQOS
Here at Philip Morris International, we know that the best choice is to stop smoking and consume nicotine completely, but we also know that there are adult smokers who are simply not going to do this or are unable to; this is why IQOS has been created as a better alternative to traditional cigarettes.
It is important to know that IQOS is not a tool to help smokers stop using tobacco. IQOS is used with units of tobacco for heating that contain nicotine, an addictive substance that is also present in traditional cigarettes. This is why IQOS is for adult smokers only who would in any case continue to smoke tobacco products or use products containing nicotine. Nonetheless, the fact of not involving combustion, nor smoke, means that switching entirely to IQOS is a better option than continuing to smoke.
To help you make the change, IQOS offers you a free lending service so that you can experience for yourself all the advantages of this innovative device. Visit our web page and request your trial IQOS; one of our advisors will explain all the advantages of IQOS to you in person and solve any doubts you may have.
Where can I buy IQOS?
Buying an IQOS device is very simple on our website. You can visit the on-line store and choose your preferred model and accessories to best fit with your needs: IQOS 3, IQOS 3 MULTI or IQOS 2.4. PLUS.
On our website you can also find your nearest IQOS store using our store locator or get advice from our IQOS advisors, who will be happy to offer you an excellent, personalised service.

How to choose your IQOS: The one that best fits your style
At Philip Morris we have spent years researching to develop a better alternative to conventional cigarettes. It’s our goal to be able to offer adult smokers who would otherwise continue smoking a better alternative to cigarettes, and therefore be able to achieve a smoke-free future.
In fact, IQOS and its HeatControl™ technology are already revolutionising the market. IQOS is the number 1 tobacco heating device worldwide1, with over 10 million adult smokers around the world who have already switched to IQOS2.
One of the keys to our success is our constant work to improve the technology. Despite more than 10 years of research and development to launch the first IQOS model and an investment of billions of dollars, we are still carrying out research to be able to offer better, increasingly advanced alternatives to traditional cigarettes. Proof of this is the latest IQOS model, which we launched in November 2019, IQOS 3 DUO.
However, we know that not all smokers are looking for the same thing, and that everyone has different preferences, which is why we have several IQOS alternatives and models to cover the most varied demands of adult smokers, and you can choose the one that best suits you.
How many IQOS models are there?
There are currently three different models of IQOS on sale, all of which work with the revolutionary HeatControl™ technology:
- IQOS 3 DUO: the latest model, which replaces IQOS 3, with enhanced technology that offers two consecutive uses and fast charging.
- IQOS 3 MULTI: the perfect device for smokers who don’t want to charge after each use, you can use it 10 consecutive times without having to charge it between one use and the next.
- IQOS 2.4 PLUS: the original device with which it all started and the most affordable alternative, highly recommended for those who want an entry into the world of heated tobacco.
If you need to see a detailed comparison, go to our website, where you’ll find a comparison of the different IQOS models in a table that explains all the features and details of the three devices currently on sale.
Why choose IQOS 3 DUO?
The new IQOS 3 DUO system provides the most advanced technology and excellent design. Unlike its precedent, IQOS 3, and its predecessor, the IQOS 2.4 PLUS, IQOS 3 DUO boasts the advantage of being able to be used twice consecutively, without the need to charge the device between one use and the next.
Another advantage to bear in mind is its charging time -in just 1 minute 50 seconds, for the first use3, you’ll have your device charged and ready to use, without the need to wait. Much like the latest generation mobile phones, which have far faster charging systems than a few years ago, at IQOS we have also improved this aspect.
It is available in 5 colours, some are limited edition, and it has the widest range of customisation options (like the exclusive aluminium door covers), there are hundreds of options to make it exclusively yours, unique like you.
Why choose IQOS 3 MULTI?
IQOS 3 MULTI is the perfect device for those smokers who don’t want to have to charge after each use, as it allows you to use it 10 consecutive times from a single charge, without having to recharge the device between one use and the next. Its compact, two-in-one design, where the charger is integral to the device, is perfect for taking it wherever you need it, practical, convenient and always ready for use.
Once you’ve finished using the device, connect your IQOS 3 MULTI to a table charger, an in-car USB charger or simply a power adaptor. It needs 75 minutes charging time per 10 uses to be ready to use again.
You can choose from 4 different colours to give your IQOS 3 MULTI that personal touch, with several customization options. Visit the website and discover the accessories available for your device, all designed with top quality materials.
Why choose IQOS 2.4 PLUS?
IQOS 2.4 PLUS is the original device that started it all, and it has the same base technology as previous models - the IQOS 3 MULTI and the IQOS 3 DUO.
It’s the most affordable heated tobacco alternative, made up of a pocket charger and a device. Like IQOS 3 DUO, this device can be used for 20 sessions, although not consecutively as you will need to charge it after each use. Approximate charging times for the device are between 4 and 10 seconds after each use, and 90 minutes every 20 uses for a full charge.
Just like the other devices, IQOS 2.4 PLUS offers you a burn-free, smoke-free, ash-free experience that produces less odour than traditional cigarettes.
Find out how to customise your IQOS
Once you have chosen the device that best suits you, whether for functionality or design, it’s important to know that you have lots of customisation options for your IQOS. You can start, for example, by choosing one of the exclusive limited editions available at the time, changing your device’s cap IQOS 3 DUO, IQOS 3 MULTI caps and IQOS 2.4 PLUS caps) and picking a case or a pouch to protect your device.

Ban on menthol tobacco products: what is it and how will it affect you?
On May 20, 2020, an important legislative change will come into effect:
The sale of certain menthol tobacco products will be banned in Spain and the rest of the European Union. However, menthol heated tobacco, used with IQOS, will not be affected by this ban. There is a degree of confusion about this among IQOS users, which is why we have decided to provide the information below.
Following European Directive 2014/40/EU relating to tobacco products, transposed in Spain by Royal Decree 579/2017 of June 9, the sale of tobacco products with characterising flavors was banned in Spain and throughout the European Union on January 1, 2016. But the ban on menthol products was postponed to give its broad consumer base more time to adapt to the change.
When the ban comes into effect on May 20, 2020, it will no longer be possible to sell any of the products affected by it in either Spain or the rest of the European Union.
Which products will be banned and which ones won't?
As of May 20, it will not be possible to buy or sell menthol cigarettes, cigarettes with menthol-flavoured capsules or menthol rolling tobacco.
Menthol-flavoured heated tobacco units that are used with IQOS, and other menthol tobacco products, such as small cigars, cigars, pipe tobacco, and waterpipe tobacco, will continue to be sold in the usual places.
Does it affect the heated tobacco units you use with IQOS?
No. The new ban does not affect the sale of the menthol heated tobacco units used with IQOS: they will still be sold in the varieties currently available.

Together we can double up
As part of the IQOS community, we can do great things together.
At times like this, we must give our best. With this spirit, we have launched the initiative “Together we can make twice the difference” in collaboration with FESBAL - Spanish Federation of Food Banks.
Through our “Refer a Friend” program and all its members we are determined to help and reach the greatest number of people possible thanks to the points you redeem, which IQOS will double and redeem to FESBAL.
Starting from April 29, you can redeem the points you have accumulated in the Refer a Friend program and donate them to the Spanish Federation of Food Banks, who will transform them into food that will be provided to people in need.
Each point redeemed is worth €1, and IQOS will match your contribution, doubling the donation. So, if you redeem 5 points, IQOS will donate €5, plus an additional €5, to match your donation. Combined, our donations will be worth €10.
How do I take part?
If you have already registered for the “Refer a Friend” program, follow these steps:
- Log into comparteelcambio.com
- Go to your points account and in the “Together we can make twice the difference” section, select the number of points you wish to donate, and which we will match.
- You will receive a confirmation email specifying the amount that IQOS will donate.
- For each point you redeem, we will donate €1 to FESBAL. Additionally, we will match your donation, doubling the amount.
If you haven’t joined the program yet, follow these steps:
- Sign up at comparteelcambio.com
- If you don’t know your code, request it on the Refer a Fried website
- For each adult smoking friend you refer and who joins the IQOS community, you will receive 20 points which you can spend in dedicated offers and experiences.
- Additionally, now you can redeem your points and collaborate with FESBAL, and IQOS will match your donation.

What is FESBAL?
FESBAL is a non-religious and non-political NGO, founded in 1996, with one objective: help every day to provide food to people in need across Spain. Currently, the federation includes 54 Food Banks, at least one for every province in the country. More than one million people across Spain depend on Food Banks.
The initiative is promoted by PHILIP MORRIS SPAIN, S.L. (PMS), whose name will figure on the receipt of the donation, for which participants will not receive a tax certificate. Participants acknowledge that the assignment of points to to this initiative they forgo those points, which will no longer count for the purposes of the “Refer a Friend” program, and therefore will have no fiscal consequence for the participant. For each point participants redeem, PMS will donate €1 to the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL). Additionally, PMS will donate the same amount across the different channels on which the campaign is active (consumers, professionals and PMS employees), up to a maximum of €300,000. PMS will make regular monthly donations, from 04/29/20 until 12/31/20.

IQOS tobacco heating system vs e-cigarettes
An smoke-free alternative to cigarettes.
IQOS tobacco heating system vs E-cigarettes - what is the difference?
IQOS tobacco heating system and e-cigarettes are both smoke-free alternatives for adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products.
Both are electronic devices, and do not generate smoke like cigarettes. But there is one feature that distinguishes IQOS tobacco heating system from e-cigarettes: Contrary to vaporizing an e-liquid, IQOS heats real tobacco, producing tobacco vapor.
What are e-cigarettes?
E-cigarettes are electronic hand-held devices that are smoke-free alternative to cigarettes. In general, they are powered by a battery and heat e-liquids in order to generate an aerosol or what some users call vapor. The e-liquids may have various flavors and may contain nicotine.
How do E-Cigarettes work?
There are many types of e-cigarettes. They differ in size, power, customization options, and even their ability to be reusable or disposable. However, most of them work on the same principle and with similar components.
E-cigarettes heat and vaporize e-liquids in a wide range of temperature from 100 ⁰C - 250 ⁰C. They achieve this by drawing the liquid from a tank and putting it in contact with a battery powered heating element. When the liquid is evaporated it is drawn from the device thorough a mouthpiece.
The battery - The energy source for the whole device. In most cases it is rechargeable and provides power to the heating element and electronic components.
The tank - The container that is used to store the liquid until It Is taken to the heating element or chamber. Some e-cigarettes use capsules or pods that are disposable.
The e-liquid - The mixture that is vaporized inside the e-cigarette. While there are many variants of the liquids, they usually contain propylene glycol, glycerin, nicotine, flavorings and various additives.
The heater - The set of components that draw the liquid toward the heating element and heat to vaporize. Most e-cigarettes use a “wick and coil” system. The wick naturally soaks the liquid and puts It In contact with the metal coil which is the part that heats.
The sensors and electric components - Control the heating and operation of the device. They range from simple push to activat e buttons, LEDs, battery Indicators or to advanced flow sensors.
The mouthpiece - The chamber or channel where the vaporized liquid drawn from the device.
Without question, the best decision any smoker can make Is to quit tobacco and nicotine use altogether. While not risk free, e-cigarette is a smoke-free alternative for adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products.

Style and tech made personal
The dimensions of a perfect moment
Our senses work in tandem to define our experiences. Color, taste, smell, touch, mood… they are all intertwined.
In fashion, we get grabbed by the design of a dress or a shirt, but it's the vibes the color and the fabric create together that ultimately delight us. How much we like a meal can depend on the texture as much as the taste. And let's be honest; the look of a car can raise our interest, but only by opening the door for the first time we start forming our real opinion.
It's all connected. That's why we want to help you build your personal IQOS moment top to bottom. Therefore, we're happy to bring you something new: The Warm Copper Collection in limited edition.
The warmth of warm Copper
Warm Copper is a unique color we are very excited about. A blend of sunbaked reds and earthy browns create a timeless sense of authentic beauty, making the modern IQOS designs feel intimate and personal.
What ar you reminded of when you look at Warm Copper? Aged metal? Ancient clay? Autumn leaves? Endless fields? Either way, warm copper is associated with warm, comfortable memories that make for a perfect basis to build your IQOS moments on.
Touch, color, and flavor of memories
The Warm Copper Collection includes a beautiful IQOS device with a metallic finish, a unique door for the charger made of aluminum. IQOS is a high-tech device, but the cool aluminum touch, combined with the warm color conjures up the vibes of the tools of yesterday.
A tool like that needs a proper holder. That’s why the collection also includes a leather folio and a leather slim sleeve. The organic hues and the high quality Italian leather provide you a unique IQOS experience.
So, take a look at the items in our Warm Copper Collection and ask yourself: shouldn’t they belong to you?
The Warm Copper Collection is available in limited edition while stocks last.

Awaken your senses
Mineral tones meet a luminous finish
IQOS was built to be more than a device. The interaction between materials, design and color was meant to create a truly unique, personal object, that's easy to handle. Something that's more than the sum of its parts.
That's why we are so excited to introduce a new elevated design: a new line of aluminum IQOS doors coming in a subtle color palette that includes chromed silver, dusty gold, ashen grey and muted copper, all selected to bring out and elevate the aluminum's natural beauty.
Aluminum: Cool touch. Cool look.
Imagine your trusty IQOS with a brand new look, thanks to a piexe of high quality, brushed aluminum, that fits it so precisely, it snaps right on it. A luminous add on that gives your device a unique shine, a fine detail that stands out and improves its look and feel without fundamentally changing it.
Now imagine holding this beautiful object, feeling the variety of textures. The fresh, shining cool touch of the aluminum door and the gentle, modest color bring the whole look together into a new, down to earth, yet premium package.
Visit our website or one of the IQOS stores to get a real look and feel of our door selection and maybe even choose the color that will complement your companion now on.

IQOS is an innovative alternative to traditional cigarettes. Thanks to its advanced HeatControl™ technology, which heats tobacco to a controlled temperature of 350ºC without burning it, IQOS is able to remove many of the inconveniences of traditional cigarettes such as: the strong smell and smoke. These are just two of the numerous advantages offered by IQOS compared with traditional cigarettes.
IQOS is also an elegant and stylish device: for this reason it was chosen by the Good Design Awards who distinguished it for “its unique shape and the metallic and elegant tones in combination with different colours (...) which make IQOS a stylish device with a sense of intelligence and integrates elegantly into everyday life.”

How to choose accessories to customize your IQOS
The IQOS accessories have been designed to cover a wide range of proposals, always taking into account the possible needs of the users, trying to provide the maximum possible combinations of personalisation so that your IQOS Kit is truly unique.
You can find the IQOS accessories divided by devices in the accessories section in the online shop: one thing you have to always remember is to check the name and description of the accessory and if it is designed for your particular device – for example, table chargers are designed only for IQOS 3 DUO, IQOS 3 MULTI and IQOS 2.4 PLUS – so before buying, check if the product is compatible with your IQOS model.
Another option that you can use to be sure that you are purchasing compatible items for your device is to go to the accessories section by categories:

The IQOS 3 DUO Folio, for example, is a compact holder with a fabric finish which allows you to transport your IQOS 3 plus a second device at the same time with easy access, whilst the IQOS 3 Leather Folio is ideal if you want to carry all the IQOS 3 essentials such as: a device, a pack of tobacco sticks, a clip-on-tray and a cleaning tool.
On the other hand, on our website you can also find a whole selection of cases and accessories to protect your device in case of accidental falls or scratches, and at the same time, improve its appearance and make it more enjoyable to use.

If you prefer, you can also head to your nearest IQOS sales point and request a free lending service of IQOS in person. Once registered, the ambassador will contact you, schedule a meeting to give you a detailed explanation of how IQOS works. Find your nearest IQOS store.
Why choose IQOS instead of a traditional cigarette
The IQOS device is intended for all adult smokers looking for a better alternative to the traditional cigarette. Thanks to the HeatControl™ technology, IQOS heats the tobacco instead of burning it, which has considerable advantages over a traditional cigarette: it produces less odour than cigarettes; IQOS produces no smoke, rather it produces tobacco vapour that dissipates more quickly than cigarette smoke; and, given that there is no lit tip, with IQOS there is no risk of burning the people around you, nor pets, clothes or furniture. Additionally, its compact, ergonomic design make it a product easy to take everywhere you go and which is at once discreet and attractive. In any case, IQOS isn’t risk free.
When can the services of an IQOS ambassador be requested
Any adult smoker interested in the IQOS device can request information about the product or request the free lending service through our webpage filling out a short form: an ambassador will contact you to explain the advantages in a personalised manner.
How to access the free IQOS lending service
Once you have filled out the form, one of our IQOS ambassadors is going to contact you through a phone call or instant message. The ambassador will offer a free lending service and personalised assistance so you can know all the IQOS features.
When is IQOS use not recommended
It is important to remember that IQOS is not risk free. The IQOS device works with specially designed heated tobacco units that contain nicotine, an addictive substance; it is therefore not intended for non-smokers, children or other vulnerable people (pregnant or breast-feeding women, diabetics and those with heart problems or severely high blood pressure). For more information, check our website.
The advantages of using IQOS
Thanks to the HeatControl™ technology IQOS heats, rather than burns, specially designed heated tobacco units. IQOS heats the tobacco just enough to release a flavorful nicotine-containing tobacco vapor but without burning the tobacco, meaning that it produces no ash nor smoke and less of an odour than cigarettes. You can refer to our dedicated page for more information about all the advantages of IQOS.
Free lending service without commitment. 3-step programme
The free IQOS lending service is made with the aim of allowing the adult smoker to become familiar with this better alternative to the traditional cigarette. In this period of time, the user has the chance to appreciate the IQOS device performance and see whether or not it fits with their lifestyle.
The 3-step programme consists of an initial phase when contact is made with the IQOS ambassador (phase 1), during which time the device advantages and functions are explained. During the second phase, the smoker will try out the IQOS, relying on the assistance and advice of our ambassador at all times, to solve any doubts as to its use, the experience overall, cleaning, etc. During the third and final phase, once the user has become familiar with the IQOS device, the IQOS ambassador in any case remains on-hand to assist with any doubts as may arise during its use.
It is recommended that traditional cigarettes are not smoked during the free IQOS lending period. It is also important to keep the device clean and the IQOS ambassador will therefore advise you to clean it every day or after using 10 units of tobacco for heating.
How to meet and contact an IQOS ambassador
You can contact the IQOS ambassador service in three ways.
- Visit our page and fill in the form with your data so that we can contact you.
- Contact us through our support channels.
- Visit an authorised IQOS store to find out how to request the service.
Before starting: 7 questions to ask about the IQOS ambassador
What type of doubts or questions may arise for a future IQOS user? Below are the most frequent questions but if you have any others, here at IQOS, we will be happy to solve all your doubts (remember, you can contact us via our web page).
1. Is the service free of charge or paid?
The service is 100% free of charge. Both the remote ambassador service and the commitment-free lending are free.
2. After the lending period, if you do not wish to change to IQOS, do you still have to buy it?
No one using the services of an IQOS ambassador is obliged to buy the device: you are entirely free to access the lending without any commitment. In actual fact, the aim of the service is to gain a better awareness of the IQOS device and to see how this different way of consuming tobacco functions. We believe that only those who understand the IQOS device can then decide in an informed manner whether or not they want it. And, moreover, it can also be considered an option for other adult smokers.
3. What hours can an IQOS ambassador be contacted? Are they available every day?
There are no set times or days on which the IQOS ambassador service is available. As it is personalised, tailored attention, the ambassador will agree on times and days that are convenient to the party concerned, to meet and solve any doubts. The IQOS ambassador can be flexible to fit around your commitments.
4. What happens if something comes up during the lending period requiring the trial to be interrupted or stopped?
If for whatever reason - whether personal or professional - the smoker decides to stop the trial, it can be resumed at any time.
5. How is an IQOS ambassador assigned? Can you choose or is it an automatic assignment?
You cannot choose your ambassador. In most cases, the consumer can choose their preferred contact method: by telephone (call or video call) or in person.
6. Is the device lent during the lending period new or a sample device?
The IQOS device used during the lending is a sample that must be returned at the end of the process.
7. Is there a limit to the number of calls/questions/messages that can be made to the IQOS ambassador?
No, there is no limit. It is a personalised, tailored experience to suit the smoker, meaning that the number of times the person concerned contacts the IQOS ambassador is not important. Some prefer more frequent contact, some fewer meetings. A good IQOS ambassador will understand what type of smoker he is dealing with and if it is a person who has a greater or lesser requirement for his personal service.

Repeat all steps for each product and serial code you wish to register.
Where to find your IQOS serial code
Serial codes are basically the device’s ID and are made up of a combination of 14 numbers and letters. Both the device and its charger have their own serial code. You can either enter them separately or alternatively enter the kit box serial code, thereby registering both items at once. Below are instructions on how to find the serial codes of each IQOS model:
IQOS kit serial code
- The serial code can be found on the bottom of your IQOS kit box, together with the QR code. By using this code, you will register both your IQOS device and charger at once.
IQOS 3 DUO or IQOS 3 serial code
- Device serial code: remove the cap and at the back of the device, you will find both serial code and QR code.
- Charger serial code: remove the side door cover of the charger to see it.
IQOS 3 MULTI serial code
In this model, the battery and device are one and the same. It is a compact model that does not separate; hence the only serial code is that on the device. To see it, remove the cap.
IQOS 2.4 PLUS serial code
- Device serial code: this can be found in the same place as the IQOS 3 DUO and IQOS 3, by removing the cap.
- Battery serial code: this can be found opposite the buttons and “on” lights, on the outside.
Why you should register as an IQOS user
By registering as an adult IQOS user, you enjoy the following benefits:
- Access to customised support programmes for use of the product.
- Access to exclusive promotions open to you, such as, for example, the Renewal Plan 2.4 or information about limited editions.
- If you need to make a claim under warranty to have your device repaired/replaced, you can ask for it to be delivered to an address of your choice or alternatively to one of our collection points.
- Acces to the International Assistance Servicefor claims under warranty and support while travelling anywhere where IQOS is available.
- Access to the REFER A FRIENDprogramme, through which you can recommend IQOS to adult smokers friends and gain unique premiums and advantages for the both of you.
Depending where you buy your device, registration may not actually be necessary. If, for example, you buy on-line, registration will be automatic at the time of purchase. Instead, if you buy your device from an authorised store or through one of our representatives, you will need to register manually.

Can IQOS help you stop smoking?
Smokers look for ways to stop smoking for many different reasons, which range from personal hygiene and aesthetics - it stains teeth and fingers - to more social aspects - the smell that lingers on clothes, hair and breath or the smoke that may bother those around them.
The best choice is to stop using tobacco and consuming nicotine entirely and this is why there are so many different products and methods available to help people quit smoking, like the nicotine patches and gum that can be found in chemists.
IQOS is not among this type of products; it is not designed to help consumers to quit smoking for the simple reason that it is a device that uses heated tobacco units that contain nicotine, an addictive substance whose use is not without risk.
Nonetheless, IQOS can be considered a better alternative to traditional cigarettes and a better option for those continuing to smoke, due to its many advantages. It is important to remember that IQOS is a device intended for adult smokers only, who would otherwise continue to consume tobacco products or use products that contain nicotine but who can, if they make the switch completely to IQOS, improve their everyday lives, thanks to a smoke free device that creates no ash and produces no cigarette smell.
Can IQOS replace traditional cigarettes?
Yes, IQOS can replace traditional cigarettes as it offers a better alternative for those people who wish to free themselves from the disadvantages of traditional cigarettes, like smoke, ash and smell.
It is very important to understand that in order to benefit from all the advantages offered by IQOS and its heating system, the change must be definitive and traditional cigarettes must be eliminated entirely.
Can IQOS benefit you in the same ways as stopping smoking?
Use of IQOS cannot benefit you in all the ways stopping smoking can as it is not risk-free, however it does offer you advantages in comparison with traditional cigarettes, thanks to its exclusive, advanced HeatControl™ technology. This innovative system does not burn the tobacco, IQOS heats the tobacco to a controlled temperature of up to 350º, thanks to a heating blade inside the device that controls the temperature.
At first sight, heating or burning tobacco may appear to be an unimportant detail, but in actual fact, it is the key to everything. As the tobacco does not burn, IQOS generates no smoke, instead producing a nicotine-containing vapour – not smoke - that dissipates more quickly than traditional cigarette smoke and which is much less dense. Additionally, IQOS produces no ash and differently to cigarettes, as there is no fire involved, there is also no risk of burning those around you, nor pets, clothes or furniture.
The fact of not producing smoke or ash means that IQOS is a cleaner device than traditional cigarettes and, therefore, more convenient for the user and people around him.
If you are not sure that you want to make the definitive change, you can try out first-hand the advantages of IQOS with a free loan. Indeed, IQOS offers a free trial service because switching to IQOS is always easier with the help of an expert.
Go to the TRIAL section of the website and fill in the form; one of our representatives will contact you, deliver you the product and explain all its benefits in person.
 Important information: IQOS is not risk free; it is not intended for non-smokers, children and other vulnerable people (pregnant or breast-feeding women, diabetics and those with heart problems or severely high blood pressure).

What is the IQOS 2.4 Renewal Plan?

If you are not sure if your device effectively is an IQOS 2.4, below are the characteristics you need to check to see if your device is an IQOS 2.4 or not; examine:
- The pocket charger:

What is the REFER A FRIEND programme and what are its benefits?
IQOS is a better alternative to traditional cigarettes and no one knows this better than its users, who have already made the switch and experienced, first hand, the benefits of relegating cigarette ash, smoke and smell to the past.
It was thinking of these people and those around them that led us to create the REFER A FRIEND programme whereby IQOS users can help other adult smokers make the switch to IQOS and, at the same time, earn unique rewards and advantages for both.
The REFER A FRIEND programme is very simple and is based on recommending IQOS to other adult smoker friends.
If you want to find out more about this exclusive programme, this article explains exactly what to do and what requirements you need to meet to take part, as well as all the advantages and rewards available.
- What are the requirements and who can take part in the REFER A FRIEND programme?
- How does the REFER A FRIEND programme work?
- What are the advantages of the REFER A FRIEND programme for Sponsors and Sponsorees?
- How can I use the points of the REFER A FRIEND programme?
- Do devices purchased through the REFER A FRIEND programme come with a warranty?
- Can a device purchased through the REFER A FRIEND programme be returned?
- Not sure if IQOS is for you?
- How register for the programme
- When will your points be available?
- A purchase has been made with my code but I do not have my points
- How to buy at the on-line store using a Sponsor code
- Expiry of the Sponsor referral codes
What are the requirements and who can take part in the REFER A FRIEND programme?
Taking part in the REFER A FRIEND programme and recommending IQOS, thereby becoming a “Sponsor” is very simple, you only need to meet the following requirements:
- you must be over 18 and reside in Spain: peninsula or Balearic Islands (the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla are excluded);
- you must be an IQOS user and have a device (at least one IQOS kit purchased in peninsular Spain or the Balearic Islands) and be registered with the PMS (Philip Morris Spain) database;
- employees of Philip Morris and store owners cannot take part.
- The “Sponsor” can recommend IQOS to adult smokers interested in the device but will only receive points when his “Sponsoree” is not already registered in the PMS database as an adult user of IQOS and buys his first IQOS.
Click here for the terms and conditions of the Programme.
How does the REFER A FRIEND programme work?
The REFER A FRIEND programme is very simple: if you already an IQOS user with a registered device, you need merely visit the REFERRAL section of the es.iqos.com website and head directly to comparteelcambio.com, where you can request your code. Please remember that the code is personal and cannot be transferred and that you can give it to anyone you like (adult smokers) as best you see fit.
When the new IQOS user, your “Sponsoree” places his first order adding the code (as long as he has not been previously registered with the PMS database), you will both receive points that you can exchange for products available from our catalogue, designed especially for you and your adult friends.
Once he has made his first purchase, the “Sponsoree” will become a “Sponsor” and can, in turn, recommend IQOS to other adult smoker friends interested in making the definitive switch and change to a world without smoke.
What are the advantages of the REFER A FRIEND programme for Sponsors and Sponsorees?
The aim of the REFER A FRIEND programme is that IQOS users sharing their experience with and the advantages of IQOS shall obtain immediate benefits. The person making the recommendation, the “Sponsor”, will receive 20 points when t he adult smoker, his “Sponsoree”, buys an IQOS device. In turn, the Sponsoree shall also receive 20 points.
In addition, both will be able to take part in exclusive competitions run for IQOS users and obtain rewards simply for being part of the Programme.
How can I use the points of the REFER A FRIEND programme?
Consulting and exchanging the points obtained is very easy: customers adhering to the programme can see their points balance by heading to comparteelcambio.com and accessing their personal area. You must be registered with your REFER A FRIEND credentials in order to purchase catalogue products. Please remember that your credentials for IQOS.com may differ from those for comparteelcambio.com.
To exchange points, Programme participants should visit the “Catalogue” section where each prize has its value in points. Points can only be exchanged for gifts with a point value that is equal to or less than the points available to the participant.
Do devices purchased through the REFER A FRIEND programme come with a warranty?
Adult smokers purchasing their first IQOS through the REFER A FRIEND programme shall be entitled to benefit from the IQOS warranty service, just like all other users purchasing their devices through other channels.
IQOS has two types of warranty:
- legal warranty covering any IQOS device purchased at official outlets, whether on-line or from authorised stores, for two years offering unlimited replacements for electronic or internal failures, as long as the device is used correctly and the recommendations have been applied for its use and cleaning, as given in the IQOS manual;
- international warranty, which is an innovative service designed for IQOS users travelling abroad, guaranteeing them technical support outside Spain should they experience any problems with their devices whilst travelling in any of the countries where IQOS is available. The service includes, if applicable and possible, the replacement of the faulty IQOS device.
Can a device purchased through the REFER A FRIEND programme be returned?
Here at IQOS, our main concern is to assure an excellent customer service, therefore, if you have purchased a device, whether through the Refer a Friend programme or in any other way (from the on-line store, an authorised IQOS store or over the telephone), and are not completely convinced and therefore wish to return it, you may do so with no problem at all within 15 days of purchase, contacting the channel where you made the purchase and returning the product with the box open or shut. For purchases made on iqos.com, contact us through live chat or our customer service channels. In our FAQs, you can find out how to return your order.
What should be borne in mind is that if the Sponsoree should return his IQOS kit that led to the generation of points for the Sponsor, PMS reserves the right to eliminate said points from the Sponsor’s balance or claim back any rewards delivered.
The person returning it (the “Sponsoree”) shall automatically be removed from the system because he is not an active IQOS user and therefore does not meet the requirements to be in the programme.
Not sure if IQOS is for you?
Here at IQOS, we want to help you make the definitive change by offering you our free trial service. Making the switch to IQOS is easier with one of our experts!
Visit our website and fill in the form and an IQOS representative will contact you to arrange for a product loan to you and to explain its benefits in person; additionally, throughout the trial period, you will be offered the customised support of our experts.
How register for the programme
Each user who has purchased a device and registered it will have an associated “Sponsor” code.
In order to obtain your username and password, you will need to check your e-mail and find the IQOS welcome e-mail from when you bought it; this will give you access to comparteelcambio.com, where you can generate a password. If you cannot find it, do not worry, you have two options:
- Go to comparteelcambio.com and request your code: you will receive an SMS text message and an e-mail to allow you to create your credentials.
- Call us on 900 15 20 15: We will send you a welcome e-mail and SMS text message giving access.
When will your points be available?
You will receive your points automatically once the Sponsoree has made his purchase. The points obtained will remain for the 7 days assigned, but can only be exchanged in the catalogue starting from the eighth day.
A purchase has been made with my code but I do not have my points
You can monitor your referrals on your “comparteelcambio” profile and see their status. If your Sponsoree has requested a free loan but not yet decided to buy the product, the points will not yet be reflected in your account.
Take into account that if your Sponsoree has purchased the product with your Sponsor code through our on-line store, points may take up to a week to be assigned.
How to buy at the on-line store using a Sponsor code
The Sponsor code can be used by the Sponsoree when making purchases from our on-line store of his first device.
In order to enter it, select the IQOS kit you want to buy and upon completing the purchase, enter the code supplied by the Sponsor in the “Promotional Code” section. The direct discount of the quantity of points given at that point, will apply automatically.
Expiry of the Sponsor referral codes
If you are already a user and have already registered your device, you will need to access the “REFERRAL” section of our website, which is linked to the comparteelcambio.com website and request your code. This code is personal and non-transferable and does not expire. You can share it as many times as you like with all adult smokers wishing to buy their first device.

IQOS & CO close doors on 20 October
This coming 20 October, IQOS & CO will be officially closing. Situated in the wonderful Palacio de Santa Bárbara, right in the heart of Madrid, for six months the IQOS & CO terrace has provided a place where very special moments could be enjoyed, constant laughter shared, and great memories created in an unparalleled context.
Brunches, after-work do’s, music and workshops are just some of the events that have been held in this innovative space, where great many unique experiences have been enjoyed, like the master classes, make-up sessions, cocktail competitions and customisation of IQOS accessories created by international artists, to mention just a few.
IQOS & CO has been a multi-purpose site where gastronomy, free time and an exclusive IQOS store have created a unique environment. At this innovative sales outlet, IQOS users have been able to admire the latest models of IQOS devices and accessories on sale first-hand and experience an extensive range of services, like free device cleaning, assistance, device lending, solving doubts and much, much more besides.
These six months have been intense but extremely positive, thanks above all to the Mediterranean cuisine, cocktails and a great selection of wines, all at the hand of Gastro BY LARRUMBA. IQOS & CO has been a place where new experiences, free time and gastronomy have come together in a perfect blend, creating a little oasis in the heart of the city, in which to wind down and switch off.
But everything comes to an end and now that the leaves are turning the reddish browns and ochres of autumn and covering the Madrid pavements announcing the change of season, open air places and venues are gradually less popular and the IQOS & CO space in Madrid closes to make room for new proposals, new projects and a great many new surprises.
Something will soon be changing in Madrid. Here at IQOS, we continue to strive to offer you the very best experiences. Stay tuned!

How to replace or repair your IQOS device
IQOS is manufactured with high quality materials and the cutting-edge HeatControl™ technology. As it is an electronic device, it requires care, but this does not mean that incidents are not possible.
Nonetheless, this is nothing to worry about as IQOS comes with a warranty, a extensive technical service and an international assistance service to help you with any incident that may involve your device.
The important thing is not to attempt to fix it yourself or have unofficial services do so, as this may irreparably damage your device.
Below we will provide you with a full explanation of everything you need to know about the most common IQOS problems, repairs and spare parts.
What to do if your IQOS has a problem
First of all, make sure that your IQOS really does have a problem by running through the steps of our troubleshooting guide:
- Find out what is happening with your IQOS 3 DUO device
- Find out what is happening with your IQOS 3 device
- Find out what is happening with your IQOS 3 MULTI device
- Find out what is happening with your IQOS 2.4 PLUS device
- Find out what is happening with your IQOS 2.4 device
If your IQOS device is still malfunctioning after having followed all the steps given in our troubleshooting guide, we suggest you contact us through any of our customer support channels, or head to your nearest authorised store to explain to the customer services team exactly what is wrong with your device. You can contact us by:
- Live Chat, where you can send a message and we will answer you immediately. Got to the IQOS website and in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, you will find the live chat icon; click there and explain your doubts. This service is available from Monday to Friday, from 9AM to 9PM and on Saturdays from 9AM to 6PM (1h earlier in the Canary Islands).
- Social networks: talk to us through Facebook and Twitter, both available from Monday to Friday, from 9AM to 9PM and Saturdays from 9AM to 6PM (1h earlier in the Canary Islands).
- E-mail, by e-mailing us your doubts. This service is available from Monday to Friday, from 9AM to 9PM and at weekends from 9AM to 6PM (1h earlier in the Canary Islands).
- You can also call our freephone number 900 15 20 15 from Monday to Friday, from 9AM to 9PM and at weekends from 9AM to 6PM (1h earlier in the Canary Islands).
- Go to the website and find your nearest authorised IQOS store in the store locator.
What are the most common problems with IQOS?
Some of the most common problems with IQOS devices are:
- Broken heating blade: this part is the heart of the device and the most delicate part. Incorrect use or cleaning can damage it. If the plate has no tip, is twisted or broken, the IQOS will not function perfectly. This is what you should do if you believe that the heating blade is broken.
- IQOS does not turn on: follow the steps given in the IQOS user guide to reset your device; if it still does not turn on, something has gone wrong.
In these cases, we always advise our customers to contact a customer services expert or head to an IQOS store.
Why buy spare parts for the IQOS?
All IQOS parts have been manufactured in accordance with high quality and safety standards. Due to the complexity and advanced technology employed, parts like batteries and heating blades are not sold or marketed separately.
It is important to take into account that IQOS is the result of many years of research with science and technology having come together to create the advanced HeatControl™ system that can heat the tobacco without burning it, at an optimum temperature that does not exceed around 350º.
Due to its advanced technology, IQOS boasts very sophisticated elements by which to guarantee its correct function (its duration will depend on the model chosen: IQOS 3 DUO, IQOS 3 MULTI or IQOS 2.4 PLUS).
As it is a long-lasting electronic device, IQOS requires a powerful energy source (here are 5 ways to extend your battery life). Additionally, the heating blade, the very heart of the device, and the HeatControl™ technology, incorporate delicate, sophisticated ceramic components and platinum, silver and gold elements.
As you can imagine, these types of parts have advanced technology and cannot be changed or handled by the user. In order to guarantee its proper functioning, it is essential that the device is only examined by the official technical service. At IQOS, we recommend that you always contact the Customer Services Department in the event of failure or malfunction, where qualified professionals can help you with any issue that may arise with your device.
What parts of IQOS can be replaced?
Although you cannot replace the technological components of IQOS by yourself, there are some external parts of IQOS that can be changed, depending on the model you have. For example, you can change your device caps or the door cover of the IQOS 3 charger. To see which elements can be changed, refer to the accessories section for your IQOS model:
Who can repair or replace a broken IQOS device?
Only IQOS stores with the official technical service. You may find a great many technicians and stores that are not authorised by IQOS and are willing to fix your device and may even offer you non-original spare parts. These types of interventions can irreversibly damage the advanced IQOS system.
This is why we recommend you to contact an authorised sales outlet and make the most of the official IQOS technical service, where qualified IQOS professionals and experts can assist you.
Even if you are not in Spain, you can still make the most of the IQOS international warranty, thanks to the customer support service abroad we have available for you.
Make the most of all the IQOS assistance services and do not let any unqualified staff touch your device. Only trust the official IQOS service to properly maintain your device and keep it functioning perfectly.

IQOS vs traditional cigarettes and electronic cigarettes: what is the difference?
At present, there are a great many alternatives to cigarettes for adult smokers. Nonetheless, the differences between the many variants are not always clear, nor indeed does everyone understand the use and purpose of such alternatives. This is why, below, we will explain the difference between the traditional manner of consuming tobacco and IQOS, a better alternative to traditional cigarettes.
What is the difference between IQOS and traditional cigarettes?
The main difference between using IQOS and consuming traditional cigarettes is combustion. When a cigarette is lit, combustion is generated, where the tobacco reaches a temperature of more than 800°C, which produces smoke and ash.
Yet in the case of IQOS, the tobacco is not burnt, but instead heated. Thanks to HeatControl™ technology, the tobacco is heated to an optimal temperature of up to 350°C, avoiding its burning.
This allows IQOS to replace the disturbance of cigarette smoke and odour with tobacco vapour, which dissipates more quickly than cigarette smoke. In turn, it leaves less of an odour in furniture and fabrics than cigarettes and means it is less likely to bother those around you. Additionally, as there is no lit tip, with IQOS there is also no risk of burning those around you, nor pets, clothes or furniture.
How is IQOS different from electronic cigarettes?
Although IQOS is frequently compared with vaping, it is actually a very different device to electronic cigarettes.
IQOS is not an electronic cigarette as, differently to these types of products, it does not use liquids. IQOS is used with units of tobacco for heating, specifically designed for use in this device. The IQOS HeatControl™ technology controls the temperature of the device heating plate, a highly sophisticated element made of ceramic, platinum, gold and silver, which prevents the tobacco from burning. Ultimately, differently to electronic cigarettes (which use a resistance, a battery to heat and vaporise a liquid solution), IQOS incorporates innovative technology used to heat units of real tobacco.
These units of tobacco for heating contain nicotine, an addictive substance naturally present in tobacco leaves. Nicotine is addictive and can cause side effects similar to those associated with other products that contain nicotine: please read this important information about IQOS.
IQOS is not a tool designed to help smokers stop consuming tobacco; it is a better option for adult smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke cigarettes.
The use and design of IQOS
The advanced IQOS HeatControl™ technology means that the duration of use of IQOS is very similar to that of a traditional cigarette: approximately 6 minutes or 14 draws, whichever is first.
Additionally, IQOS flaunts a fine, elegant design that has been awarded international prizes and which is, above all, easy to use, making it an elegant, user-friendly device, suitable for carrying with you anywhere and use any time.
Where can IQOS devices be found?
- At the on-line store of the IQOS website, a full range of IQOS products is on sale, designed for adult smokers.
- authorised IQOS sales points and stores. Visit the finder section of our website to find your nearest store.
And if you are still not sure and would like a trial period before buying it, we give you the option of trying out IQOS for 7 days, completely free of charge.

Do you think your IQOS heating blade has broken? This is what you need to do
In order to understand how the IQOS works and use it correctly, it is important that you understand what it houses and how this revolutionary electronic device works.
The heart of IQOS houses the heating blade made from ceramic and elements of platinum, gold and silver. This blade is part of the sophisticated HeatControl™ technology, whose main function is to heat the units of tobacco for heating in a controlled manner, thereby assuring that the temperature of 350ºC is not exceeded. If we want to ensure its optimum function at all times, it is very important not to damage it. Below, we will explain how to monitor its condition and avoid possible damage.
How to see if your IQOS heating blade is broken
- Remove the cap from your device.
- Check the condition of the blade.
- If the tip is missing, it is twisted or broken, it is probably damaged.
Such damage may be caused by incorrect device use or cleaning.
In order to make sure that it is the heating blade and not something else that is malfunctioning in your device, contact us by writing to us through the live chat system (bottom right of our web page), e-mailing us at [email protected], through our social networks (Facebook and Twitter) or by calling Customer Services on 900 152 015 or alternatively head to one of our authorised stores where our experts will be able to see what is happening with your IQOS and how the problem can be solved.
How to prevent your IQOS heating blade from breaking
The heating blade is the real heart of your device; correct use and cleaning will keep it safe from any damage or breakage so take the following advice and enjoy your IQOS to the best of its performance.
- Make sure that you are using your IQOS device correctly. Insert the unit of tobacco for heating up to the filter line and press the device button to activate the heating blade. Never twist the unit of tobacco for heating inside your IQOS. Before starting to use IQOS, press the button until it vibrates and wait until the white light stays. In this article we explain how to use, charge and clean your IQOS.
- Make sure that you clean the device and in particular your IQOS heating blade. Before cleaning it, it must have cooled completely.
- It is very important to use the IQOS cleaner and not any other tools, as they may damage the device and break the heating blade. Once the device has cooled, position the cleaner and twist carefully. Lastly, use an IQOS cleaning stick to gently clean around the heating blade.

Tutorial and instructions on the correct use, charging and cleaning of your IQOS device
There is a first time for everything, including for IQOS. This is why we want your first experience with IQOS to be as easy as possible and the device to function perfectly throughout its useful life.
IQOS is an electronic device. This means that if not used correctly, over time, with frequent use, its capacity and performance may be affected. Below are some basic instructions on how to maintain your IQOS device and some useful advice on proper use, such as, for example: how to charge your device, how long the battery takes to charge, when it is fully charged and how long it lasts, as well as advice on cleaning and maintenance.
How to use your IQOS
- Insert a unit of tobacco for heating (for IQOS 3 MULTI, you will need to first need to slide the cap).
- Press it gently up to the filter line, without twisting it.
- Press and hold the button until the device vibrates and the light stays fixed on, white.
Handling and use of an IQOS device, as you have seen, is simple and user-friendly, but its care and maintenance is very important for it to function correctly. This is why below we provide you with some basic rules on the correct use of IQOS:
- Regular use of the device will keep it in tip-top condition.
- Exposure to the sun, cold or very damp areas may impact the optimal performance of IQOS; we therefore recommend taking precautions when using the device if in places of extreme heat or cold and/or damp.
- Take care when inserting the units of tobacco for heating into IQOS; do so gently, without twisting the tobacco unit at any point, as this movement may damage the heating plate inside the device.
- Lastly, charging and cleaning are two essential aspects of caring for your device. Below are details of how these operations can be done.
Apart from these general recommendations on making correct use of IQOS, you can also consult the IQOS manual, which gives details on the steps necessary to start using and operating your IQOS device.
How to charge your IQOS 3 and 2.4 PLUS
- Place the device into the charger (in any direction for the IOQS 3).
- Connect the USB lead to the charger.
- Connect the USB lead to the current adapter and this to the electricity grid; the small charger light will start to flash.
- When the lights stop flashing, the device is fully charged.
How to charge your IQOS 3 MULTI
- Connect the USB lead to the device.
- Connect the USB lead to the current adapter and this to the electricity grid; the small charger light will start to flash.
- When the lights stop flashing, the device is fully charged.
In the help section for IQOS 3 MULTI of the website, you can watch a video providing a detailed explanation of the first steps of your IQOS experience.
How to charge your IQOS the first time
Follow the same steps explained in the above paragraph on “How to charge your IQOS”, depending on the device you have: IQOS 3, IQOS 3 MULTI or IQOS 2.4 PLUS.
Additionally, to look after the battery and charge your device correctly, take the following aspects of general use into account:
- Do not let your IQOS battery run down completely; try to charge it before it is completely flat. You can check the battery level by pressing the charger button for IQOS 3 and IQOS 2.4 PLUS or the device itself for IQOS 3 MULTI.
- Do not forget to disconnect your IQOS when the battery has charged; leaving the device to charge for longer than necessary, may damage its useful life.
- Charge your device at the same time as your telephone, so as not to forget it and always have your IQOS to hand when you need it.
- The quickest way to charge your IQOS is to use the current adapter, as charging through the computer USB port is slower than normal.
How long does IQOS take to charge?
Charging time depends on the model:
- IQOS 3: this device comprises two elements, the charger and device itself. Charging time for the charger is 120 minutes every 20 uses, whilst the device charges between 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
- IQOS 3 MULTI: this model has been designed for smokers who do not wish to wait; it can therefore be used 10 times consecutively, with no need to charge the device between each use. Once it has been used 10 times, battery charging time is 75 minutes.
- IQOS 2.4 Plus: this model comprises charger and device. Charging time is: for the device, an average of 4 minutes and 10 seconds; for the charger, 120 minutes every 20 uses.
How can I see if IQOS is fully charged?
When charging, the lights of the IQOS 3, IQOS 2.4 PLUS or IQOS 3 MULTI, flash. When they have stopped flashing, the device is fully charged.
IQOS is extremely user friendly: you will have no difficulty in understanding when your IQOS is fully charged.
How long does the IQOS battery last?
Not all IQOS users want the same thing and this is why, here at Philip Morris International, we have chosen to offer different models of IQOS to suit the needs of each.
Let’s take a look now at how long the battery lasts:
- IQOS 3: the pocket charger has a capacity of 20 uses per charge, but please remember that this model device must be charged in the pocket charger after each use. The total battery life of this device is up to 14,600 uses.
- IQOS 3 MULTI: this model is designed for smokers who do not wish to wait; it can be used 10 times consecutively, with no need to charge it between each use. Just like the previous model, total battery duration is up to 14,600 uses.

Why IQOS is not an electronic cigarette?
In recent years, electronic cigarettes have gradually become an option to bear in mind for smokers looking for alternatives to the traditional cigarette.
Even though the goal of this webpage isn’t to provide information on electronic cigarettes, in order to understand what IQOS is and why it is not part of this category of products, it is important that you know what they are. Pay close attention; below, we will provide you with a clear, concise explanation of everything you need to know about them and the different types available on the market.
What are electronic cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes or “vaporisers” are electronic inhalation systems. They work with a small battery and a heating unit (atomiser), which heats a liquid solution that is then converted into vapour. They were originally designed to simulate and/or replace consumption of traditional cigarettes.
What is IQOS?
IQOS is a different alternative, an electronic device that heats tobacco instead of burning it. Designed with rounded lines and featuring advanced HeatControl™ technology, it is an elegant, intuitive, very much user-friendly device. Here at Philip Morris International, we have launched this revolutionary device for adult smokers looking for an alternative to both the traditional cigarette and electronic cigarettes. The main difference as compared with electronic cigarettes is that IQOS does not heat a liquid solution; rather it was conceived to be used with heated tobacco stick, especially designed for this device.
What are the liquids used by electronic cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes are filled with liquids, which are responsible for generating the vapour inhaled by its consumers. The operating procedure is simple: by heating the liquid, the vapour is transformed into smoke, hence the term “vape” or “vaping”.
Many people ask if electronic cigarettes contain tobacco and the answer is no: instead of tobacco, they use liquids that, although not containing tobacco may contain nicotine, depending on the liquid chosen.
The main components of these liquids are:
- propanethiol and ethanol
- vegetable glycerine
- optional nicotine, at different percentages, depending on the liquid
- food-type flavourings.
The liquids are available in a wide range of different flavours: tobacco (menthol and fresh), fruit, drinks, sweet and/or savoury flavours and in some, the percentage of nicotine desired can also be chosen.
Is IQOS an electronic cigarette?
No, IQOS is not an electronic cigarette. The major difference between IQOS and an electronic cigarette is that IQOS does not use liquids, instead it is used with heated tobacco sticks, which contain nicotine and have been specially designed for IQOS.
What are the advantages of IQOS?
IQOS has many advantages, including the fact that it does not produce smoke nor a large cloud of vapour, but rather a tobacco aerosol that disperses quickly.
Another major difference between electronic cigarettes and IQOS is the HeatControl™ technology. Following 10 years of research and development, at Philip Morris International we have finally managed to replace tobacco combustion with its heating. IQOS HeatControl™ technology has been designed to control the temperature of the device heating plate so that tobacco is heated to an optimum temperature of up to 350 °C, with no need to burn the tobacco, which is what instead happens in traditional cigarettes.
One of the major differences between traditional cigarettes and IQOS is that with IQOS there is no combustion, meaning that there is no risk of burning people, pets, clothes or furniture around you. It also generates no smoke or ash and has a less persistent odour than traditional cigarettes. In short, it’s a better alternative to continuing to smoke cigarettes.
How can I try out IQOS?
Here at Philip Morris International, we know that the best way to discover the advantages of IQOS is to experience them first-hand: this is why we let IQOS free of charge to smokes who want to try it out. To do so, simple visit the website (es.iqos.com) and request an IQOS trial; an IQOS representative will be on hand to advise you throughout the trial period. Alternatively, if you prefer, contact an authorised IQOS store, where detailed information is available about IQOS, how it works and the relevant advantages.
Both electronic cigarettes and IQOS are a better alternative to smoking. Heating, whether of liquids, as for electronic cigarettes, or produced with IQOS, is a better alternative to combustion, which instead entails all the inconveniences of smoke, ash and the classic cigarette odour.
Anyhow, it is important to remind that neither IQOS nor electronic cigarettes are risk-free.
Where you buy IQOS?
The best way to buy an IQOS device is via the website store, where you can see all the options made available by IQOS to different types of adult smokers.
Another alternative is to visit an authorised IQOS store. You can use our locator feature of the website to find your nearest store.

What is a tobacco heating system?
IQOS is an electronic device that uses sophisticated electronics to heat tobacco instead of burning it. Also referred to as a heat-not-burn product, it uses HeatControl™ Technology to control and regulate the temperature to which the tobacco product is subject in order to prevent it from combusting.
IQOS has a tobacco heating system that is meant to be used with specially designed tobacco sticks, heating the tobacco heats just enough to release a nicotine-containing tobacco vapor but without burning the tobacco.
How does the tobacco heating system that is integrated in the device work?
IQOS has a tobacco heating system available in three versions. IQOS 2.4 PLUS and IQOS 3 have two main components, an IQOS holder and a charger. IQOS 3 Multi 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.
Tobacco is heated electronically through a controlled heating blade to temperatures up to 350°C, avoid burning the tobacco. 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 approximately six minutes or 14 puffs, whichever comes first. 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 use, the consumer recharges the holder by inserting it into the charger.
After each use with the original three component heating system (IQOS 2.4 PLUS and IQOS 3), 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 (IQOS 3 Multi) must be charged after ten consecutive uses.

Why is changing to IQOS a better alternative?
The best choice a smoker can make is to stop consuming tobacco and nicotine products entirely. However, for those who do not wish to, there are better alternatives to the traditional cigarette.
At IQOS we are very proud of our devices as more than 10 million adult smokers around the world have already switched to IQOS*, transitioning to HeatControl™ technology. One of the great advantages of our electronic devices is that by eliminating combustion, you also eliminate smoke and ash.
Our main aim is to put the latest technological and scientific progress made at the service of adult smokers, improving their experience and that of the people around them. If you have not yet had the chance to try out our device (you can request a free trial here), we will explain just why it is better to swap to IQOS, so that you have a clearer idea.
What is the secret of IQOS?
IQOS has developed the perfect formula to meet the expectations of even the most demanding smokers, yet at the same time eliminating some of the disadvantages of traditional cigarettes. Heating tobacco to a maximum temperature of 350º generates an aerosol that contains nicotine without the smoke and smell of the traditional cigarette, thereby making IQOS a better choice than a traditional cigarette and perfect for even the most demanding smokers.
What are the advantages of IQOS?
- IQOS is an electronic device that does not generate smoke; it is an aerosol that dissipates more quickly.
- It does not produce ash.
- It smells less, leaving no cigarette smoke, which is replaced by a less persistent odour, on clothes and hair.
- Differently to cigarettes, as there is no lit tip, with IQOS there is also no risk of burning those around you, nor pets, clothes or furniture.
This simple change, eliminating combustion and heating tobacco, is the real key to our success. As the tobacco is not burnt, there is no smoke or ash and this reduces the smell and dirt. In thus doing, IQOS users can use it without the nuisance caused by smoke from a traditional cigarette.
Discover the practical elegance of IQOS
The advantages offered by IQOS are not purely technological. Its elegant, easy-to-handle, convenient pocket size make IQOS a complete electronic device, designed to simplify the life of adult smokers, without forgoing elegance.
The new, compact design flaunted by IQOS 3 means you have the perfect size device to carry wherever you like, in your pocket, bag or even by hand. Its rounded edges make it more ergonomic and more natural and intuitive to hold. Aspects like the vibration and LED lighting have been improved to assure a more user-friendly experience.
The IQOS 3 Multi model allows you to use the device continuously, with no need to constantly charge it - perfect for users not wanting to wait. Its integral, compact, light design is perfect for carrying with you at all times to enjoy the IQOS experience without having to wait.
Tell other smokers about your IQOS experience and share the change
More and more smokers are changing to IQOS. If you are one of the over 10 million adult smokers around the world who have already switched to IQOS* and want to share the change, recommend IQOS to other adult smokers. Your friends and acquaintances will thank you for it.
Leave smoking, ash and the smell of traditional cigarettes in the past and open to the new horizon proposed by IQOS, with an experience that has to be first-hand. Because the change is here now. Don't miss out - try the advantages of IQOS for yourself.

The alternatives to traditional tobacco: Why don’t all smokers want the same thing?
IQOS is the result of many years of work and research and offers a better alternative for adult smokers. Electronic cigarettes and vaporizers have been around on the market for many years now, but only IQOS gives an alternative using real tobacco instead of liquid with nicotine.
The revolutionary IQOS HeatControl™ technology is based on heating tobacco rather than combustion. At first glance, it may appear that the change from burning to heating is not a major one, yet it is. It is the turning point that will change the way tobacco is consumed forever.
How is IQOS technology a better choice than smoking?
The key lies in the temperature. The heart of the IQOS device features the heating plate, which heats the tobacco without burning it up to approximately 350º, whilst in traditional cigarettes this temperature exceeds 800º, burning and producing smoke.
The temperature reached by heating tobacco units that IQOS devices use suffices to release a tobacco aerosol that contains nicotine.
It is important to highlight that IQOS is not a tool to stop consuming tobacco and nicotine but a better alternative for adult smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke. You need to know that IQOS isn’t risk free and that the heated tobacco units used contain nicotine, which is addictive. The best way to reduce risks related to tobacco is to completely quit tobacco products and nicotine.
Why is IQOS a better choice than traditional tobacco?
- IQOS heats tobacco instead of burning it, therefore it generates no ash and no smoke.
- Unlike traditional cigarettes, IQOS has no risk of burning others around you, pets, clothes, and furniture as there is no lit end.
- IQOS generates less smell than cigarettes and it is less likely to bother people around you.
- When using IQOS, the tobacco vapor dissipates more quickly than cigarette smoke.
- Smokers who switched to IQOS say that their breath smells better 1 and that there is less unpleasant feeling and aftertaste left in their mouth compared to smoking traditional cigarettes 2.
These are the main advantages of using IQOS devices compared to continuing to smoke. That’s why over 10 million adult smokers around the world have already switched to IQOS 3. The key to the success lies in the fact that our devices have found the way to satisfy the needs of smokers wishing to find a better alternative.

Developed for smokers, IQOS is an intuitive alternative to smoking
Built with smokers in mind, the intuitive design of IQOS is a result of over 10 years of research and development. Let’s look in more detail at the device, a winner of the 2017 Good Design Award.
Slim and stylish design
Weighing in at approximately 120 g, IQOS is so light you can take it anywhere. The heft of the device feels light in the hands, and with dimensions of approximately 11 cm by 5 cm, it’s about the size of a small mobile handset.
The Jury of the Good Design Awards 2017 say, “The distinct shape and the combination of sleek metallic tones with neutral colourways… gives IQOS an aesthetically pleasing and smart feeling that integrate elegantly into everyday life.”
Simple to use, ready at a touch
To use IQOS, simply insert a specially designed heated tobacco stick into the IQOS holder and press the button to heat the tobacco. There’s no need to continuously hold down on any buttons like some e-cigarettes, and after the experience is over (14 puffs or 6 minutes, whichever comes first), your IQOS will shut off automatically.
Place the IQOS holder into the pocket charger again to charge the holder for your next experience. Some IQOS users prefer to always have their IQOS ready, and buy a second holder, for continuous charging. Our variety of carry cases are designed to hold an IQOS, a second IQOS holder, and a pack of heated tobacco sticks for convenient carrying.
Convenient pocket charger and battery indicator
The pocket charger holds the IQOS holder while charging and also stores the holder when it’s not in use. Indicator lights on the pocket charger ensure you always know when your IQOS holder is charged and how much battery remains in the pocket charger. One light indicates 25% battery power remaining, two lights 50% battery power remaining, and so on.
Your IQOS comes shipped with 50% battery life in the pocket charger, and you should be able to use your IQOS right away. There’s no need to charge the pocket charger to full power to use the IQOS holder. Once the pocket charger is fully charged, you can use it 20 times – the same number of times as sticks in a pack of heated tobacco sticks.

Looking After Your Device: 5 Ways to Extend Your IQOS Battery Life
Would you like to extend the life of your IQOS battery? Like any other electronic device, frequent use tends to drain power and performance if it’s not used correctly, and no one wants to be caught short with a flat IQOS. So we’ve compiled a list of five great ways that you can keep power and extend your IQOS battery, as well as a few tips for keeping your device in great working order:
1. Unplug your IQOS when fully charged
One of the most common ways to wear out your IQOS battery is to overcharge it. So leaving your device in the IQOS charger overnight can end up causing the battery to empty. Even though it’s a bit less convenient, unplugging your IQOS when it’s fully charged is an easy way of keeping battery life longer.
2. Don’t let the battery empty before you recharge it
Allowing your battery to empty fully before you recharge it, really reduces its lifespan. Instead, recharge the IQOS after every 20 uses - which, conveniently, is whenever you finish a pack of heated tobacco sticks.
3. Store IQOS at the correct temperature
It’s a little-known fact that exposure to high temperatures can damage products like e-cigarettes and IQOS, reducing the lifespan of both the device and its battery. After each use, make sure that you store your IQOS in a cool and well-shaded area. Try not to store your device in very cold places either.
4. Keep your IQOS clean
5. Use it regularly
By using and charging your IQOS regularly, you won’t allow the battery to drain, which means it will always have the level of power you need for the best experience.
IQOS Battery Safety
We often see concerns about the safety of e-cigarette batteries on the internet, but IQOS does not fall into this category. All IQOS products undergo exhaustive safety tests before they go on sale. Every material used is tested and assessed, and each component is made to an extremely high level of quality and safety standards.
At the end of lifecycle of your IQOS device, you can bring it to the nearest recycle point as you can do with other regular electronic devices.
