IQOS 3.0 is a good device – simple and easy to use – but it doesn’t have the strongest hit and has less features than IQOS’ updated device 3 DUO. If you’ already have IQOS 3.0, stick with it, but if you’re looking at getting a new device, go for 3 DUO instead.

There are two parts to IQOS 3.0; the holder (which heats the HeatStick) and the pocket charger (which charges the holder). The holder cannot be used consecutively, but it charges quickly in only 3 minutes, 15 seconds. You get approximately 30 consecutive uses before needing to charge the pocket charger.

FEATURES: Bluetooth

QUALITY: Feels durable, just to be gentle with the blade.

DESIGN: IQOS 3.0’s design is very similar to IQOS 3 DUO. This design is chic, while still minimalistic.






In your IQOS 3.0 kit you’ll find; the pocket charger, the holder, the 3.0 manual, a USB cable and adapter, a cleaning brush, and cleanings sticks.

When our kit arrived, the device was fully charged and ready to use. If your’s isn’t, then you can put the holder in the pocket charger and connect the pocket charger to a power source. Once connected the pocket charger LED indicator lights will begin flashing and slowly light up one-by-one until all are lit. When charging is done, all the lights will turn off. To fully charge it’ll take approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes.


Now to use the device;


  1. Remove the holder from the pocket charger
  2. Insert a HeatStick into the holder
  3. Press and hold the control button
  4. LED light flashes and device vibrates
    • Heating takes 19 seconds
  5. When device is ready to use light turns solid
    • cycle length is 6 minutes or 14 puffs
  6. When device powers off, LED lights turn off
  7. Push up cap and remove HeatStick
  8. Put holder in pocket charger to charge

For optimal use the holder should be cleaned regularly. The manufacturer recommends after every 20 HeatSticks. To clean your device, remove the cap from the holder and gently lower the cleaning brush over the HeatSticks heating chamber. Slowly rotate the cleaning brush so its bristles remove any dirt within the holder. When done, remove the cleaning brush and replace the cap. You can also use the cleaning sticks to wipe away any grime in the heating chamber.



IQOS’ brand of HeatSticks is called HEETS. HEETS are specifically designed for IQOS HnB products holder device. Each HEET consists of 18 milligrams of nicotine. Users report that the tobacco taste is very strong because of this. Due to such several users have commented that, despite which label, IQOS flavors have a more noticeable nicotine taste than vape flavors. There are several available flavors of HEETS – for a full listing of the flavors, reviews, more information abut the HEETS design, please click here.



  • Philip Morris International (PMI), the IQOS manufacturer, is spending a lot of money keeping its new and existing customers happy. If you encounter any problems with your IQOS devices do not hesitate to reach out to them by calling their customer service support line. The phone number, corresponding to country of purchase, is located on the side of the box. There is no guaranteed course of action, however the company does prize customer satisfaction. They did replace one of our products for free, which amazed us as it was a broken blade in an older device without a receipt. They simply scanted the bar code and give us a brand new device. I would not expect this to happen all the time but it is worth bring up.
  • In some countries PMI offers free cleaning of the product by simply visiting an official IQOS store.
  • If you find cleaning tedious, check out automatic cleaning devices, like HNBC or Elio.
  • You get more bang for your buck if you buy the full IQOS kit, rather than the device alone. If you buy directly from IQOS, there are often deals and sometimes you can even trade in your old device for a discount on your new device.
