IQOS HeatSticks is a special portable tobacco smoking device developed just a few years ago by Philip Morris International. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, IQOS HeatSticks are heating tobacco to a high temperature of 350 degrees Celsius.
In practice, this gadget looks like an electronic cigarette, into the receiver of which a special cigar-shaped stick filled with a tobacco mixture is inserted. The device is equipped with a lithium-ion battery and a platinum-ceramic heater. In order to start the smoking process, just insert such a stick into the receiver and inhale through the mouthpiece of IQOS HeatSticks.
Charging the device is carried out contactlessly using a portable charger, which, in turn, is charged from the network.
During the standard smoking procedure (thermal distillation of tobacco), tobacco and cigarette paper are burned. As a result, about 6,000 chemical compounds are released, most of which are poisons to the human body. In particular, soot, soot, tar and carbon monoxide are formed, which, systematically entering our body, lead to cardiovascular, pulmonary diseases, and are also the main cause of cancer.
According to experts, due to the rather low temperature of exposure to the smoking blend and paper, in IQOS HeatSticks tobacco does not burn at all. During smoking, the blend gradually evaporates when heated to 350 degrees Celsius, which avoids the occurrence of by-products of combustion. The smoker does not inhale smoke, but nicotine vapor, which is as close as possible to the taste of ordinary cigarettes in terms of taste and aroma. At the same time, the harm of smoking (or, if you want vaping) is reduced by 90-95% compared with the use of conventional tobacco products.
As we have already noted, for vaporization, IQOS HeatSticks do not charge the usual tobacco mixture, but specially ground tobacco powder.
Philip Morris International marketers claim that over 3.7 million smokers regularly use IQOS. In particular, consumers really note the following advantages in the regular use of this gadget:
IQOS HeatSticks during operation do not emit a characteristic pungent smell of burnt tobacco. Therefore, when soaring with the help of this gadget, the smoker’s hands, hair and clothes will smell like the perfume that he applied in the morning when leaving the house.
