Say hello to Ploom, one of the newest Heat Not Burn brands to hit British shores. First established in Japan with the noble goal of providing smokers a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes, Ploom are branching out and bringing their innovative heat not burn technology to all corners of the globe, including our stores.
With no burning, combustion, smoke, tar, or stale odour, Ploom heated tobacco products and Evo sticks are cheaper, safer, and more convenient in the long run when compared to regular cigarettes. Their latest heat not burn device, the Ploom X , is the ideal starter kit for current smokers considering dipping their toes into the realm of this new technology. Interested in finding out more about Ploom? You’ve come to the right place. Our Ploom blog is here to take a closer look at this up and coming brand, their range of products and how they work to help you decide if a Ploom heated tobacco system could be the right smoking cessation aid to help you ditch the cigs and quit smoking for good.
Is Ploom a vape?
No, although Ploom manufactures electronic smoking cessation aids, these differ from vaping products. Vapes deliver nicotine in the form of eliquid, which is then evaporated within the device to create vapour. Unlike vapes, Ploom devices work by heating real tobacco, so they’re classed as tobacco products. However, unlike standard cigarettes, the tobacco is heated to a precise temperature to avoid burning, so there is no combustion.
The absence of burning also means an absence of smoke, so even though the Ploom device isn’t classed as a vape, you can still use it just about anywhere where vaping is also permitted. As there is no odour, ash, or toxic by-products, you’re able to use your Ploom in public without bothering or posing harm to bystanders. To find out more about how Heat Not Burn technology works, take a peek at our Heat Not Burn Explained blog where we provide a full rundown of what’s involved.
How long does a Ploom stick last?
The Ploom X device is designed to be paired with their signature tobacco sticks known as Evo sticks. Evo sticks are compact sticks of tobacco, which are slightly smaller than regular cigarettes, and when inserted into your Ploom device they will slowly heat up to release a nicotine-rich but discreet vapour.
Ploom Evo sticks are made to provide a similar experience to smoking regular cigarettes, so each stick provides roughly 5 minutes of use, much like a real cigarette. Evo sticks are available to buy in packs of 20, and the Ploom X can heat up to 20 Evo sticks on a single charge, so you’ll always be able to tackle your nicotine cravings, even while on the go.
Ploom Evo Sticks Flavours
If you’re thinking about giving heat not burn technology a try but worry you’ll miss the satisfying taste of genuine tobacco, fear not, Ploom has got you covered. Their Evo tobacco sticks contain real tobacco and are available in a range of different intensities and flavours to suit your preferences. Also, thanks to their unique Active Blend formula, each stick contains a mix of large and fine cut tobacco to lock in even more flavour.
So, whether you’re a fan of rich and smoky tobacco flavours or prefer a cooling menthol experience, there’s a range of Evo sticks for you. Here’s a quick breakdown of just a few of the Evo tobacco sticks available:
● Ploom Evo Amber (Rich & Intense Tobacco)
● Ploom Evo Bronze (Smooth & Rounded Tobacco)
● Ploom Evo Ruby (Crisp Apple & Mint)
● Ploom Evo Green (Classic Menthol Tobacco)
● Ploom Evo Purple (Delicate Berry & Menthol)
● Ploom Evo Magenta (Cooling Grape & Mint)
Furthermore, following the release of this original range of Ploom Evo sticks, Ploom have followed up with Ploom Evo Options collection. These heated tobacco sticks are akin to the click-filters you may recognise from cigarettes; simply crush the capsule located in the filter tip to release an additional flavour experience. The current Ploom Evo Options include:
● Ploom Evo Purple Option (Tobacco & Mint; Berry capsule)
● Ploom Evo Green Option (Tobacco & Mint; Peppermint capsule)
● Ploom Evo Baize Option (Tobacco & Mint; Pear capsule)
How does the Ploom X work?
As we mentioned above, the Ploom X is the latest heat not burn device from this brand and it’s designed to be used in tandem with their Evo tobacco sticks. The device itself is compact and handheld, making it ideal for users on the go. To get started, simply insert your Evo stick into the device with the filter facing outwards. You can fire up the heating process at just the click of a button, a short vibration will let you know when it’s ready to be used.
When the heating cycle has ended, you’ll be notified by another, longer vibration letting you know that it’s time to dispose of your Evo stick. As the tobacco inside Evo sticks are heated rather than burned, it will emerge from the device looking much the same as when it was inserted, albeit with a slightly toasted appearance.
What’s included in the Ploom starter kit?
The Ploom X starter kit is the ideal bundle for those who are interested in trying heated tobacco products for the first time. It comes with everything you need to get started, so you won’t have to make multiple purchases to kick off your quit smoking journey. The Ploom bundle kit includes:
● 1x Ploom X Device
● 1x AC power adapter
● 1x USB-C cable
● 1x packet of cleaning sticks
● 2x Ploom Evo Sticks 20-packs
