NeoStiks vs. Neo Demi Slim
What’s the Difference Between NeoStiks (Neo Kent NeoStiks, and Dunhill NeoStiks) and Neo Demi Slim?
When talking about Heat-not-Burn HeatSticks are an essential part of the conversation. Some of the most well-known HeatSticks are those created by GLO. There are several lines of GLO HeatSticks, but there are two main classifications; NeoStiks and Neo Demi Slim.
While they’re both manufactured by tobacco giant British American Tobacco and designed to work with GLO devices, there are some significant differences that consumers should be aware of.
The biggest difference is that NeoStiks (this includes Neo, Kent NeoStiks, and Dunhill NeoStiks) can all be used interchangeably but can only be used in the original GLO device, GLO Series 2, GLO Series 2 Mini, GLO Pro, and GLO Nano. They cannot be used in GLO Hyper. Whereas Neo Demi Slim can be used in GLO Hyper, but cannot be used in any of the other GLO devices. This means that Neo Demi Slim cannot be used interchangeably with NeoStiks.
As for strength of flavor, NeoStiks have a pretty wide range. Each line within the category of NeoStiks (Neo, Kent NeoStiks, and Dunhill NeoStiks – click here to learn about the difference between the three lines) offers many different levels of strength. Most of our team likes NeoStiks, especially Kent NeoStiks, but this all depends on personal preference. Neo Demi Slim tend to be a stronger in taste. There are also flavors exclusive to both NeoStiks and Neo Demi Slim.
As for where each brand is available, NeoStiks can be found around the world, but which line you get depends on your region. Neo is available primarily in Europe and Asia. Kent NeoStiks are mainly in East Asia, particularly Japan. Dunhill NeoStiks are mostly found in Eastern Europe. Neo Demi Slim is also pretty widely available. It can be found in Europe and Asia.
Some NeoStik and Neo Demi Slim flavors are similar, but they don’t really overlap. Our team has found that even when a flavor appears to be the same, they still taste slightly different – take for example Neo Ruby Boost and Neo Demi Slim Ruby Boost.
Unfotunately, GLO does not disclose the amount of nicotine in any of their HeatSticks. However, the manufacturer does state that Neo Demi Slim contin 30% more tobacco than NeoStiks.
Size-wise NeoStiks and Neo Demi Slim do differ. Neo Demi Slim are thinner. This is why they cannot be used interchangeably.
NeoStiks and Neo Demi Slim tend be similar in price, but it really depends on which country you live in/purchase from.
