This is the new IQOS 3 DUO. And there will be an upgraded version of “IQOS3 DUO” in less than a year. I was surprised by its release to sale.
Although this is the new IQOS3 DUO, the appearance completely inherits the appearance of IQOS3 and the performance has also been improved.
This time, I will give you the first appearance from the details to the iqos review.
IQOS 3 DUO release date: November 5
Color: warm white, golden light, star blue, grey wool, warm copper
New style features are easy to understand!
Support continuous use → can be used continuously 2 times
Shortened charging time → 1/2 of the previous
For IQOS3, you must charge the device every time you smoke, but the IQOS3 DUO mouthpiece can be used twice in a row.
The charging time is from 3 minutes and 40 seconds to 1 minute and 50 seconds. Shortened to 1/2.
The packaging and form are largely the same as IQOS3, but there are some differences, so I will introduce more details.
Accessories when IQOS 3 DUO is opened
This time, I chose the warm color of the new color that appeared in DUO. It is very beautiful from the physical point of view, so it is recommended.
This time, we chose new colored warm copper from DUO. I recommend it because it’s beautiful when viewed in real life.
When the door box is opened, the accessories are beautifully stored.
It’s exactly the same as IQOS3, but no matter how many times you watch it, it’s OK to have a sense of quality.
This is exactly the same as IQOS3, but it feels very advanced no matter how many times I watch it!
I lined it up

Warm-up time ~~~~ about 20 seconds

Considering that the previous models can not be used continuously, it takes 3 minutes and 40 seconds to charge, so the new model is very easy to use.
Although it is easy to explain clearly, it is obvious that continuous use is very important. Supporting two consecutive use can satisfy many people’s desires. (Of course not many.)
Support continuous use of large-capacity type IQOS3 DUO; 10 small models of continuous use MULTI; low-price IQOS2.4Plus, clear characteristics and easy selection.
Let’s take a look at the appearance of warm copper.
The lower part of the device is equipped with a USB Type-C interface from IQOS3. Please do not mind the direction of the charging port.
The LED indicator and power button are on the top.
Press the side door and it opens.
Only the door cover is made of metal. This part can be replaced by a magnet. Can be customized using separately sold accessories.
For IQOS3 DUO / IQOS3. By the way, the size and appearance are the same.
So far, the models that support continuous use are still scarce. Although the capacity is different, it is different from the small multi.
21g of heating rod is very chic when smoking.
IQOS3 looks slightly different
IQOS3DUO and IQOS3 are not exactly the same because they are almost the same.
The difference is the status light,
The status light of the new charger has been added.
There are also concerns.
The new model can keep track of the number of consecutive puff number by LED lights. This is a small thing, but it should be the only big difference 🙂
How to use IQOS3 DUO
Here are the differences between the two. First, let’s charge it well the first time.
The long and narrow LED light is divided into 4 parts. One light is below 25% of the charge.
2 lights 50%
75% remaining is 3 lights
100% full 4
Light up 2 and it can be used continuously [Change Points ①]
From here is the biggest charm of the new style.
Because it lights up two, it supports the power used twice.
First press and hold the button to turn the power on / off. When this button is pressed, the remaining charge and status can be confirmed.
Even if the heating rod is removed, the charging status can be confirmed. If used once, only one LED will light up.
This is a major feature now.
How to use
Insert the cartridge straight. Long press the power to start heating, and the warm-up time is about 20 seconds. (Vibration means ready to use)
After use, lift the lid of the heating rod and remove the cartridge. This is important, if you remove it directly, the tobacco leaves will remain inside.
In this cycle, clean the inside with maintenance tools after 1 box of catridges are consumed. (Lazy manners will lead to burnt and smelly!)
Shortening of charging time [change point ②]
Control the focus of charging,
The heating rod is magnetic in the charger and can be done without worrying about direction
After storage, the main body will start charging automatically
One to two LEDs → Turns off when two are on.
If the charge is full, you can use more than 20 catridges.
IQOS3 duo charging time ~~ 1 minute 50 seconds
IQOS3 charging time ~~ 3 minutes 40 seconds
By the way, it takes about 4 minutes and 10 seconds to charge the IQOS2.4 Plus.
IQOS3 DUO is about 1 minute and 50 seconds. Although overwhelming changes have been achieved, I think there will actually be some differences
Why is there a difference in use time
The use of IQOS is 6 minutes, or 14 puffs.
For example, what if two people use it this way?
1. A Mr. A completed in 3 minutes
2. Mr. B who used up 6 minutes
In this case, I think the battery consumption is completely different.
Actually, no matter how many times I measure, I can’t get the same result
PS: (This is my opinion, not the official announcement)
IQOS 3 DUO summary
1, easy to use. Only 1/2 charging time in normal use! Without a doubt the best result in IQOS history.
2, support continuous use. 1/2 charging time becomes so usable! This is by far the best IQOS
