New IQOS ILUMA comes in three different device models that use the new, breaktrough SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEM™ technology: IQOS ILUMA, IQOS ILUMA PRIME and IQOS ILUMA ONE.

Do the new IQOS ILUMA devices use HeatControl technology?

Unlike previous IQOS devices, IQOS ILUMA does not use HeatControl technology. In earlier generations of IQOS devices, tobacco is heated using a heating blade onto which tobacco inserts are placed.

Thanks to technological advances, IQOS ILUMA devices are more intuitive and effortless than previous IQOS devices. The new, innovative SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEM™ technology uses induction to heat the tobacco and therefore works without a heating blade. Like other IQOS devices, and unlike cigarettes, IQOS ILUMA devices heat tobacco without burning.

New tobacco sticks designed for IQOS ILUMA devices

At the center of the new tobacco stick is a metal heating element coated with stainless steel. Using the revolutionary induction technology, the magnetic energy activates the heating element and heats the tobacco from the inside, enabling the taste of real tobacco, without smoke and without ash. The new tobacco sticks are designed to be completely closed on both sides, making them easier to insert and remove. This also means the tobacco no longer falls out of the tobacco sticks: no tobacco residue and no need to clean the holder.

IQOS ILUMATM is designed to be used only with tobacco sticks specially designed for IQOS ILUMATM devices. Do not use IQOS ILUMATM and tobacco sticks specially designed for IQOS ILUMATM devices with previous ILUMATM generations, as this may cause damage to your device. 

Do not ingest or disassemble tobacco sticks specially designed for IQOS ILUMATM devices. This product contains a sharp metal part which can cause serious injury if swallowed. Keep out of reach of children. See important information
