Curious about the different HEETS types, but not sure which one to choose? With 6.6 million IQOS users worldwide and a wide range of flavours, there is a lot you need to learn. Here we take a look at what HEETS are, all the different flavours available worldwide and how they compare to cigarettes.
What are HEETS?
HEETS, also known as HeatSticks, are heated tobacco units to be used exclusively with your IQOS device. They are composed of different filters, a tobacco plug made from real tobacco leaves, and both outer and mouth-end papers.
IQOS uses the cutting edge HeatControlTM technology, at the heart of which there is a heating blade made of gold and platinum. At the touch of a button, IQOS heats the tobacco in the HEETS tobacco stick and does not burn it, like in conventional cigarettes. The tobacco is heated to temperatures up to 350 °C as opposed to over 600 °C like in conventional tobacco-burning cigarettes. Thus, a nicotine-containing vapor is produced instead of smoke. HEETS are sold in packs of twenty HeatSticks and are available in a range of colours. Each one lasts for 12-14 puffs, similar to smoking a cigarette. Once finished, HEETS can be easily disposed of.
What do the different HEETS colours mean?
ΤThe colours on the HEETS package represent the different flavours and offer many selections, depending on the kind of experience you are looking for. This versatility allows you to adjust the selection depending on the season, the time of the day or even your mood!
Yellow, Sienna, Bronze, Amber: a selection of finely balanced tobacco blends, ranging from smooth and subtle to intense and bold.
Turquoise: Cooling menthol selection.
What’s the difference between HEETS and cigarettes?
HEETS still offer a great tobacco taste and cigarette-like satisfaction. Thanks to the heated tobacco technology, HeatControl™, IQOS produces vapor, which has a less intense smell and is quickly dissolved. The smell left on your hands, hair and clothing, and in the room, is very much less, compared to the smell of a cigarette, which leaves a prolonged and intense smell.
It should be highlighted that IQOS and HEETS are not risk-free, because they contain nicotine, which is addictive.
Thanks to their cutting-edge design, HEETS are small and discreet, while the non-burning process allows you to store used HeatSticks in their packets in order to dispose of at yousr convenience.
