The Basics About This Device


If you are looking for solid devices, QOQ is where it’s at! QOQ is a brand known for their high quality products. Currently they have two HnB devices; Smart and Honor. Today we are reviewing their most recent device, QOQ Honor.

QOQ Honor is an integrated device that can be used up to 20 times consecutively. Honor offers users temperature adjustment and self-cleaning functions. It also has a unique locking function for when the device is not in use. This is a durable device that is great for experienced HnB users, travelers, and busy individuals.

QOQ Honor comes in 6 colors; gold, red, pink , black, gray and black, and silver.

Number of Cycles (aka number of HeatSticks before needing to recharge device)Officially 25, but our test users got 20 HeatSticks
Charging Time2 hours, 4 minutes
Life Expectancy1.5 years
ColorsGold, red, pink, black, gray and black, silver

Product Unboxing & First Use


In your QOQ Honor you will find the device, the manual, a USB cable, and a device cover to protect it from aesthetic damage. Cool!


When you’ve finished unboxing the device, check the charge by clicking the control button and checking the LED indicator light color. Green means that there is 100-70% charge remaining, blue means 69-40% remaining, yellow is 39-10%, and red means 9-0% charge remaining. You can also just plug it in to check the charge. If the ED indicator light lights up and begin flashing it needs charging, but if it remains unlit, then it’s already fully charged. Our device came fully charged.

Once your device is charged, it’s time to set it to the desired temperature. To do so, click the bottom button 3 times in rapid succession. After the third click the device will vibrate and the LED indicator light will change color. Green is for high temperature and yellow is for low temperature.

Now it’s time for the first use! To turn on, press and hold the control button until the device vibrates and the LED indicator light begins flashing. The light will flash whatever color charge is remaining, which is a nice reminder so to approximately how many cycles you have left before needing to charge. The heating time will take 22 seconds in total. Once the device is fully heated, it will vibrate once more and the LED indicator light will turn solid.

*Note* We found that sometimes the device would not begin heating even after we pushed and held the control button, so we simply let go and repeated the action, which worked.

The cycle will last 4 minutes, and 24 seconds. If at any point you do need to end the cycle, just press and hold the control button until it vibrates and the LED light turns off. But if not, then just enjoy until you get another vibration and the LED light begins flashing again. This is your warning that the device will be powering off soon.

Since QOQ Honor is a multi-use device, you can start another cycle once the first has finished, just remove the old HeatStick and insert a new one first. When removing a HeatStick you do something that we normally advise against, you twist the HeatStick while gently pulling it up and out of the HeatSticks heating chamber. The manufacturer says that this helps to prevent tobacco build-up.

Day to Day Use

As always we recommend that you clean your device as often as you can. QOQ Honor is an easy one to clean since it has a self-cleaning function. To use the self-cleaning, press and hold both the control button and the bottom button at the same time, until the device vibrates and the LED indicator light alternates between flashing red and blue. The cleaning process will take approximately 30 seconds. The device will vibrate once more when the self-cleaning has ended and the LED light will go out.

Since self-cleaning is so easy to do, we recommend it daily, however you will also need to do a manual cleaning. The manufacturer recommends a manual cleaning after every 40 HeatSticks. Just take the cap off the device, pull the HeatStick heating chamber insert out, and clean gently around the blade with either a cleaning stick or a brush. For some reason, the QOQ Honor kit does not include any cleaning tools, which is unusual and a bit inconvenient. Hopefully you have a few lying around at home. If not, there are cheap cleaning accessories on AliExpress.

Investing in a QOQ Device

You can tell that QOQ is an innovative player in the industry! Their devices have cool features that are not always included in other devices, such as the locking feature and the button located on the bottom of the device. You can tell that the manufacturer created this device with the consumer’s convenience at mind. It is easy to clean, both with the self-cleaning function and with the HeatStick heating chamber insert, it also is easy to carry since it comes with a device cover. This is the first time we’ve seen a cover included in a HnB kit! Great idea!

Other users must also be impressed by QOQ’s innovation because both of their devices, Smart and Honor, have high user ratings.

Personally, our team enjoyed testing Honor. It’s a bit more advanced than some devices from other brands, as there are several commands to remember, but for experienced/frequent HnB users, it’s perfect.

2 reviews for Review – QOQ Honor

  1. Julia

    I purchased the device recently, but I really like it. Much better than IQOS. Sticks warms up well on the green mode, on the yellow is weak. Smokes a lot longer than JOUZ. In the hand lies very comfortable. A bit heavy. The charge is enough for 20 sticks. Sometimes there is tobacco from the stick in the heater, you have to pick it out. But in general, while I like everything.

      Hi Julia!

      We’re so glad to hear you are liking QOQ Honor! I think it was a nice improvement on the original QOQ Smart device!
      Absolutely! We understand that IQOS is a premium brand, and it does have it’s perks like the fantastic customer support, IQOS lounges, etc. but there are so many great devices on the market aside from IQOS and QOQ Honor is definitely one of them!

    Nice looking device but still durable. Good for people who are on-the-go a lot.
