IQOS 2.4/2.4PLUS - FAQs

In order to experience the taste of tobacco without burning it, you must remove your IQOS Holder from the Pocket Charger and insert a tobacco stick. Then press and hold the Button for a few seconds, until the LED light starts flashing and remove your finger from the button. Once the light stops flashing, it is then ready to use. Without pressing any Buttons, take a puff like you would with your cigarette. The experience will last around 6 minutes or 14 puffs, whichever comes first and will also depend on how you use it. The harder you draw, the faster you will reach the end of your experience. When the green LED light turns red, you are coming close to the end of your experience and this means you have around two puffs left or 30 seconds. Only when the light switches off does this mean your experience has ended and you can now proceed to remove the tobacco stick.
To clean, slide the Cap upward and remove completely. Insert the IQOS Cleaning Tool and rotate gently. To avoid breaking the Heater Blade employ a gentle circular motion when using the IQOS Cleaning Stick. Clean daily for optimal experience.
