What's the difference between IQOS 3 DUO and IQOS ILUMA?

By IQOS Team


How advanced is the new IQOS ILUMA? Well, it’s got all the features you know from IQOS 3 DUO, such as:

  • 2 consecutive uses
  • A fast-charging Holder
  • Pocket Chargers with 20 uses

But what are the differences? Well, IQOS ILUMA and IQOS 3 DUO have unique features.

IQOS ILUMA unique features

IQOS ILUMA Pocket Chargers have new colours and there are new accessories for them. New TEREA tobacco sticks have been designed for IQOS ILUMA with the taste you love, improved draw and generous vapour.

But the biggest difference? It’s inside.

IQOS ILUMA’s SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEMTM heats tobacco from within with a sealed stick with no blade. And no blade means:

  • No cleaning
  • No tobacco residue
  • No more broken blades
  • Easy insertion and extraction of TEREA tobacco sticks

But that’s not all. We’ve added advanced features. So what are its differences from other IQOS heated tobacco devices?

  • Autostart preheating as soon as you insert the tobacco stick
  • Smart gestures enabled by the IQOS app
  • Double tap to feel how much of the experience is left
  • Lift the holder to check battery status

IQOS 3 DUO unique features

  • It uses HEATCONTROLTM technology with blade heating.
  • Compact HEETS tobacco sticks with visible tobacco part.

IQOS ILUMA™ is used exclusively with TEREA™ tobacco sticks. Previous IQOS device versions with blade and HEETS are not compatible with IQOS ILUMA™ and TEREA™. Improper use may damage the device.

Do not ingest or disassemble TEREA™ sticks. This product contains a sharp metal part which can cause serious injury if swallowed. Keep out of reach of children.
