Rotate the Lid counter-clockwise to open the Device and insert the tobacco stick. To start heating, insert and gently press the tobacco stick to the line on the filter. Then, press the Button for 1 second until the Device vibrates and Status Light pulses white. Important: if the lid is not fully opened, the heating will NOT start and the Device will not vibrate. You will be able to start using IQOS 3 Multi when it vibrates twice and Status Light is solid white. Before the last 30 seconds of the tobacco session, IQOS 3 Multi will vibrate twice and Button & Status Light will fade out. Only when the light switches off does this mean your experience has ended and you can now proceed to remove the tobacco stick. Please follow the link to watch a video on how to use the IQOS 3 Multi:
