It has already become a tradition for IQOS to release a new version of devices every year, upgraded taking into account all the wishes of users. We will tell you more about what's new with the new IQOS 3 DUO.
Main feature - two uses in a row
IQOS is a modern technological alternative to cigarettes for those who do not plan to part with the habit, but are not averse to reduce the harm from it. The gadget has a well-thought-out design - the developers took into account that the usual ritual is important for the smoker, and embodied this in IQOS. The stick holder is small and light, in appearance and feeling in your hand it looks like an elegant mouthpiece. In sticks - natural tobacco. And even a use session lasts as long as in a cigarette - 14 puffs (or about 6 minutes). In a word, all so that Aykos does not suffer the fate of electronic cigarettes, and it could become a full substitute for smoking. According to statistics, 4 out of 5 smokers, having tried IQOS, switch to it and completely refuse cigarettes.
The only thing missing was two uses in a row. Smokers sometimes want to immediately after the first cigarette reach for the second. So it is with sticks. This is taken into account in the new IQOS 3 DUO - they added the ability to use 2 sticks in a row without a break for recharging. In previous IQOS 3 and IQOS 2.4 Plus models, after each session, the holder needs to be recharged for 3-4 minutes. With IQOS 3 DUO you do not need to wait - you can take one stick, and then, if you want, immediately take the second. Agree, user-friendly function.
Fast battery and smart charge
Two consecutive uses with the same miniature size of the holder (it weighs only 22 g) is the merit of the new, more powerful IQOS 3 DUO battery. The new gadget charges faster than all previous models, and between the first and second sessions, recharging is not required at all. To charge the holder after 2 sticks, it will take only 1 min 50 sec (this is 2 times faster than IQOS 3). And to restore a full charge to two sessions - another 3 minutes 25 seconds.
But the most interesting thing is this. Thanks to the smart charging system, the new IQOS 3 DUO can charge in seconds. The fact is that the IQOS session is designed for 6 minutes, but in most cases, users spend less than 14 puffs declared by the manufacturer. In IQOS 3 DUO, this unspent energy is taken into account during the next charge. So after 2 sessions, the gadget can restore a full charge in literally 10-20 seconds.
Drop-proof housing, NFC chip, robust design
Visually, the case of the new IQOS does not differ from the third generation model, but structurally - yes. An additional protection system has been added to it, which prevents damage during a fall, shock, or if you accidentally sit on an iikos. The side door on magnetic mounts is also not afraid of overload. Yes, no more mechanical latches.
An NFC chip is built into the device for quick connection to a smartphone. True, it does not work with all iPhone models. But this is not about IQOS, but about the iPhone, which is distrustful of all NFC, if it is not about Apple Pay.
Same technology, working principle and design
Having received new useful functionality, IQOS 3 DUO has not changed in the main. The gadget still heats the tobacco to 350 ° C, which makes it the best alternative to traditional smoking - in the cigarette, tobacco and paper burn at a temperature of about 800 ° C. Thanks to heating tobacco instead of burning, 95% less harmful substances are released when using IQOS than when smoking cigarettes. In addition, there is no smoke, tar, ash, unpleasant smell of burning and passive smoking.
Convenience and ease of use, stylish minimalistic design - all in the best traditions of IQOS. Speaking of convenience. On the IQOS 3 DUO case now 2 light indicators have appeared, which indicate the charge status of the holder. If both indicators light, the gadget is ready for two sessions in a row. If 1 indicator - it means that the charge is left on one stick and before the next use the holder will need to be recharged.
The new IQOS 3 DUO will be available in 5 colors. To the already familiar to us blue, white, gold and blue they added a new interesting shade - copper. And this means - even more options for stylish color combinations and personalization of your device.
