IQOS Review:  Duo 3 Heat Not Burn Alternative to Cigarettes

Our IQOS review is here to provide an in-depth glance at one of the hottest heat not burn devices on the market right now: the IQOS 3 Duo. As heated tobacco rapidly gains popularity in the UK, IQOS is at the forefront of this innovative technology by offering premium vaping alternatives that deliver an authentic and satisfying nicotine experience.

With so many smoking cessation aids out there, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. To help you out, this review will take you through all the key aspects of the IQOS 3 Duo, covering its features, how it looks, as well as the flavour options available to help you decide if an IQOS device could help you quit smoking for good. Let’s dive in!

IQOS 3 Duo Features

The IQOS 3 Duo keeps things as straightforward as possible for beginners to get started on their quit smoking journey. Perfectly replicating the taste and overall sensation of smoking a cigarette, this IQOS electronic cigarette should be used exclusively with IQOS Heets to heat tobacco at a specific temperature to avoid burning.

As a result, this IQOS kit produces no smoke, ash, or unpleasant odour, but you still get to enjoy the taste of real tobacco. All you need is the device and a pack of Heets to get started!

● Beginner-friendly
● No smoke, ash, odour, or second-hand smoke
● Handy pocket charger
● 2900mAh battery
● USB-C fast charging
● Uses real tobacco

As the 3 Duo is the newest IQOS device to hit the market, it’s no surprise that it’s packed with plenty of advancements and features that make it the brand’s best device yet. Thanks to the addition of a handy pocket charger, users can enjoy up to two consecutive uses without needing to recharge between Heets, making it perfect for those on the go.

When your power runs low and it’s time to recharge, you won’t have to wait long thanks to the ample 2900mAh battery which supports USB-C fast charging for full power in under 2 hours.

Now that we’ve covered the basic features, let’s find out more about the IQOS design.

IQOS 3 Duo Ergonomics & Design

At first glance, the IQOS 3 Duo looks fairly similar to an average vape kit in terms of size and shape. It’s sleek and compact and sits comfortably in your hand during use. However, unlike a vape, the IQOS kit uses real tobacco rather than eliquid, in the form of Heets sticks.

When in use, the filter tip of the Heets will protrude from the top of the device, which forms your mouthpiece.

● Small and lightweight
● Filter tip mouthpiece
● One-button design
● LED indicators
●4 colour options

The IQOS holder is designed with beginners in mind, sporting a simplistic yet stylish one-button design. It also features 4 LED indicators to let you know how ‘ready’ the holder is, and whether it has enough battery power to support the use of 1 or 2 Heets sticks.

What’s more, both the holder and the pocket charger are protected by a shock absorbent and robust outer shell that’s capable of withstanding the inevitable knocks and bumps of daily use. Available in 4 metallic colour gradients, ranging from neutral to bold, this IQOS cigarette is sure to turn heads while looking great in your hand.

Moving on from the exterior, let’s take a look at what flavours are available.

IQOS 3 Duo Flavours

Just because the IQOS 3 Duo uses real tobacco, it doesn’t mean you’re restricted to plain tobacco flavours.

In fact, IQOS have over 10 delicious Heets flavours to choose from to cater to everyone’s tastes. So, whether you prefer classic full-bodied tobacco blends or like to keep things minty fresh, there’s sure to be a Heets flavour to suit your needs.

They’ve even thrown in a fruit blend for good measure! Check out my detailed IQOS Heets Flavour Guide for a complete description of every flavour. In the meantime, here's a quick glance at some of Heets' available flavours:

Amber (rounded and rich)
Blue (deep menthol)
Sienna (intense and full-bodied)
Russet (rich and malty)
Mauve (menthol and fruit)

Those who miss the taste of menthol cigarettes following the recent UK ban on such products will appreciate the wide range of mint-inspired Heets flavours on offer.

IQOS have even introduced a new Heets variety called caps, which feature a small button on the stick which allows you to switch from smooth tobacco to cooling menthol with a simple click, giving you the best of both worlds!

Without further ado, it’s time to move on to our verdict!
