GLO Nano is new and flashy and looks completely unlike any GLO devices that came before it. But is it good enough that we recommend it?

Unfortunately, no.

The reason we say we wouldn’t recommend this device is that it seems that in order to become more visually appealing, GLO sacrificed product quality and functionality. With GLO Nano you get a meager 11 continuous cycles before needing to recharge the device. This is extremely disappointing seeing as with GLO and GLO Series 2 you could get over 40 continuous cycles and with GLO Series 2 Mini you got 18. GLO Nano simply doesn’t live up to the standard that previous GLO devices set.

Other than the issue of device power, Nano worked fine and is considerably satisfying. For $30USD it wouldn’t be a huge financial loss if you do want to try GLO Nano but, personally, I would recommend saving yourself some money and choosing the more powerful GLO Original or GLO Series 2 instead.


QUALITY:  It seems okay quality-wise, but not as sturdy as the other GLO devices we’ve tested.

DESIGN: The design is very nice but it’s nothing original. It’s pretty obvious that this design was heavily inspired by popular devices like IQOS 3.0 Multi and Lil Solid Plus. I don’t blame the manufacturer for wanting to try something new, alot of companies do, but why copy a design that has already been done a thousand times? With this design I feel like the manufacturer is loosing sight of what made GLO unique.

In your GLO Nano kit you will find; the device, the manual, a Quick Start Guide, a warranty card, a USB adaptor (note: adaptor style varies based on region of purchase), a USB cable, and a cleaning brush.


As always, we recommend checking to make sure that the device is fully charged before using it. To do so just click the control button once. The 4 LED indicator lights that surround the control button show the remaining charge . If all 4 lights are lit then the device has 100-75% charge remaining, is 3 lights are lit then 74-50% remaining, two lights means 49-25% remaining, 1 light means 24-1% remaining, and if all lights flash then the device is at 0% charge.If you find that your device has anything less than 4 lights lit, we recommend charging fully by connecting the device to a power source via the USB cable.

Now that the device is charged you can begin your first cycle by pressing and holding the control button. After a few seconds the device will vibrate and the LED indicator lights will begin flashing one-by-one. It will take 40 seconds for the device to heat fully. When the device is ready to use it will vibrate again and all LED lights will have turned solid.


The cycle itself will last for 4 minutes and 10 seconds. Nearing the end of the cycle you will feel a warning vibration to let you know that the cycle will be ending soon. After that you will feel a second vibration and the device will power off. Since this is a multi-use device, you can simply turn it on again if you would like another cycle.

To ensure that your device stays healthy, clean it regularly. GLO Nano does not have a self-cleaning feature but luckily it one of the easiest devices on the market to clean Just open both ends of the HeatStick heating chamber, put the cleaning brush in, and sweep away any grime that is trapped in there.

GLO has 3 types of HeatSticks; Neo, Kent NeoStik, and Dunhill NeoStik. GLO HeatSticks are specifically designed for GLO products. They look a bit like a traditional cigarette but are much thinner. For more a full listing of NeoStik flavors click here.

Note: With GLO devices the heating occurs around the outside of the HeatStick, therefore, when removed, the wrapper will have quite alot of discoloration. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about.




GLO Nano does come with a warranty card however terms may vary depending on the country of origin. Most warranties last two years, however some can be as short as 6 months. GLO Nano warranties only cover manufacturer defects. Most warranties are transferable to third parties.
