How Does Heated Tobacco Vaping Work?

See Video Here.

To release nicotine, cigarettes need to burn tobacco, but this creates smoke, and the tip of a cigarette can reach over 800°C when puffed. Burning releases harmful chemicals in the smoke, which is inhaled by the smoker. There are more than 6,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke, many of which, are harmful or potentially harmful, as we continue to learn about the full effects. About 100 of these chemicals are linked to smoking-related diseases1.  



One of the more recent innovations in smokefree vaping alternatives is heated tobacco vaping.  This allows for tobacco satisfaction without the need for burning. Heated tobacco vaping products release  nicotine without the need for burning or combustion. Heated tobacco vaping products use precise temperature to heat smokeless tobacco sticks, called HEETS, without burning. A HEETS smokeless tobacco stick in IQOS 3 DUO produce an aerosol (vapour) of real tobacco satisfaction smokers seek, without fire, ash, or smoke.
