iQOS - Marlboro Philip Morris
The iQOS is a newer version of Philip Morris's "HeatStick" concept. The basic idea here is that a short, special cigarette is placed in the end of the small electronic device, which then heats the tobacco sufficiently strongly. To approximately 350 ° C - so that tobacco vapor is released. This can then be simply breathed in by the pull as on a normal cigarette. The predecessors of the iQOS did not really perform well in tests, but the device has now been updated with a modern battery and USB charging capability - the technology is finally on the same level as Philip Morris's ambitions for heat-not-burn products .
