Honor Max is without a doubt the best device QOQ has ever released! This device has it all! The sheer number of features included in Honor Max sound intimidating but I actually find relatively simple to operate. This device will defiantly give HiTaste P5 a run for it’s money.

FEATURES: Display screen, temperature adjustment, length of cycle adjustment, usage record, a locking mechanism, and self-cleaning.

QUALITY: Seems very durable. Quite heavy. Cool to the touch when turned off and even after using it several times in a row it doesn’t get too hot.

DESIGN: It’s like a combination of Lil and HiTaste P5/P6. My favorite design of 2020 so far!

The QOQ Honor Max kit includes; the device, the manual, the USB cable, and a cleaning brush.


After unboxing you can check the device charge by unlocking the device – to do this press and hold the control button for 6 seconds. You will see ‘HI QOQ’ on the screen – then by checking the battery icon on the display screen.

If you’re device isn’t fully charged before using, just connect the device to a power source via the USB cable. Charging will take approximately 1 hour and 54 minutes.

Now that you’re device is unlocked and fully charged you can start setting your device preferences. Honor Max has a ton of customizable features so it’s great if you like specific settings.


First we’ll set the temperature. To do so click the control button 3 times fast. You will see the temperature numbers on the screen begin to flash. Just click the ‘<‘ or ‘>’ arrows until you reach your desired temperature. Temperature ranges from 300°C/572°F to 360°C/680°F. To set, just click the control button once more

Now we’ll set your length of cycle. After clicking the control button to set the desired temp, you’ll see the length of cycle numbers flashing. Once again click the ‘<‘ or ‘>’ until you reach your desired length of cycle. The length of cycle ranges from 3 minutes to 5.5 minutes. To set, click the control button once more.

Now you’ll see the usage record flashing. This shows you how many continuous cycles you’ve used. A great feature to have if you’re trying to keep track or set goals. You should set out with your usage record being at ‘0000,’ but if it is not just click the ‘>’ arrow until it reaches ‘0000’ again. Even though this feature can record up to 9999 uses, we recommend clearing it about once per week as, unlike HiTaste, which also has this feature, you cannot just clear it with one press of a button. You have to press the ‘>’ to go down digit by digit. This is one of my few complaints about QOQ Honor. This seems both time consuming and a bit pointless as why have a usage record if you are able to manipulate it at will?

Now that you’ve made your adjustment, just wait until the numbers stop flashing so that they fully set. Once they stop flashing then you can begin using the device.

To turn Honor Max on, press and hold the control button for 3 seconds. You will feel the device vibrate and the smoking symbol will begin flashing. This means the device is heating. Heating takes approximately 19 seconds. When the heating process is over the device will vibrate again and you will see the length of cycle numbers counting down.


With this device you get approximately 34 continuous uses. (Keep in mind this may change depending on how you set your device preferences – we tested at the recommended settings of 330°C for 4 minutes.)

When the cycle is over, lift the cap up and gently twist the HeatStick to remove it. This will help prevent built-up residue in the HeatSticks heating chamber. Since QOQ Honor Max is a multi-use device, you can put in a new HeatStick and begin another cycle immediately.

If you are done with your cycle we recommend you lock the device again. This will prevent it from accidentally turning on. To do so press and hold the control button for 6 seconds. After the first 3 seconds the device will start the heating process, but just keep holding the control button and by 6 seconds it will lock. You will know it is locked when it shows ‘BYE QOQ’ on screen.

As for cleaning, QOQ Honor Max has a really unique feature! It is the first HnB device we’ve ever seen that reminds you when to clean your device. After 40 HeatSticks the Honor Max screen will flash ‘Please Clean.’ We love this feature.

Even though Honor Max recommends cleaning after every 40 HeatSticks, we still recommend you clean daily. Since the device has self-cleaning, it’s easy to do. To turn on self-cleaning just unlock, and click the control button 6 times. The device will vibrate and a 30 second countdown will start. At the end of the 30 seconds, the cleaning is over.

You should also manually clean once a week or so. To do so, remove the cap, insert the cleaning brush into the HeatSticks heating chamber, and brush away any left over residue.
