Most smokers at least once in their life tried to get rid of addiction.
The topic of alternative solutions for smokers is now in such demand that all four of the largest tobacco companies burst into the technology race. Let’s compare 3 IQOS brands, devices from leading tobacco companies – these are IQOS, GLO, and LOGIC PRO.
The reasons may be different, but quitting smoking is not so easy. Psychological dependence is stronger than physiological. We will consider the most interesting of modern alternatives to cigarette smoking.
In the case of IQOS, tobacco does not burn and heats up to a temperature of 300 degrees. There is no smoldering, which means that smoke, tar, and other products of combustion, which are especially harmful to human health, are not emitted. In fact, you inhale the vapor with a tobacco flavor and some nicotine content.
Briefly about the design of IQOS UAE. This tobacco electric heating system consists of two elements: a portable charger and a holder. The charger, in fact, is a small power bank, from which the holder placed in it is charged. The holder, in turn, has its own small battery, which lasts for one session, after which it must again be placed in the charger to recharge.
A small HEETS tobacco stick is inserted into the charged holder, the heater blade penetrates the tobacco part, a button is pressed, tobacco heating is started, and then you can start the use session (14 puffs or 6 minutes).
GLO from the KENT brand is an analog of IQOS since a similar principle is used – electric heating of tobacco. But if in IQOS a blade-shaped heater enters the stick and heats it from the inside, then in GLO a long thin stick is inserted into the “trunk” of the device, and the tobacco part is heated outside the entire perimeter.
The GLO case is made of silver aluminum. Above is a valve that opens the opening of the stick receiver. Bottom – flap holes for cleaning and MicroUSB port for charging. The GLO design is very simple – only a compact charger with an indicator button.
Use is also not difficult. We insert the NEOSTICS stick into the barrel, use the button to start the heating process, wait for the ready signal, and begin the use session, which lasts 3.5 minutes.
Unlike the previous two options, where tobacco sticks are heated, LOGIC PRO is a real classic electronic cigarette, that is, a liquid vaporizer based on the addition of various flavors and nicotine.
But it has one important feature – the liquid is supplied in special sealed glass capsules, which can be quickly changed during use.
The compact LOGIC PRO case is made in the form of a metal tube, it can be disassembled into 3 parts – a battery with an indicator button, a capsule holder with a status window and a mouthpiece.
In order to use LOGIC PRO, it is necessary to place the capsule in the holder, assemble the device, start it with a quick five-fold push of a button. Then tighten while holding the button.
Comparison of IQOS brands: design, materials, assembly
In principle, all devices have a modern, stylish design and excellent assembly. IQOS is made of high-quality plastic, there are various color options – white, black, ruby, and the manufacturer offers a wide range of accessories – protective cases of white, dark blue, red, blue, orange and pink. The weak point of the IQOS design is the cover of a pocket charger, or rather, its latch which often fails. Therefore, the process of closing the lid should be done with the lock button pressed to reduce latch wear. But in the new IQOS 2.4 Plus model, this bug, it seems, was fixed.
The GLO case is made of silver aluminum with a slightly bluish tint. The bottom and top are plastic inserts. The design is reliable – the device has a minimum of moving parts.
The LOGIC PRO system is completely metal: therefore it looks like a solid sturdy device. The cut-out windows through which a transparent glass capsule with liquid is visible causes concern. However, the possibility of damage, even if it suddenly falls, seems unlikely, since it has a decent metal edge around.
