IQOS 3 Duo Usage, Features and other facts
Philips Morris presented a new IQOS model - IQOS 3 DUO.
The gadget was first of all updated in terms of functionality and filling, only slightly changing in design.
Let’s find out the usage and features of IQOS 3 DUO.
The appearance of IQOS 3 DUO
The design and appearance have not changed much. As before, the holder is stored and charged in the main unit case. Only the indicator light has been updated, now there are two lights on the body and holder of the new DUO.
Externally, IQOS 3 DUO is a traditionally stylish gadget with well-designed details. The coating is not easily soiled, and even on the glossy cover, fingerprints do not really remain. The coating itself was made even more resistant to scuffs and scratches.
The body of the device is highly rounded and therefore very ergonomic. The power button is located at the corner of the top end. Next to it is a three-piece indicator light. A long bar shows the total charge level, and two dots next to it show how many sessions the holder is charged, for one or two.
The holder can be easily removed from the charger by simply pressing the side panel. It itself is attached to two small magnets. By the way, the side panel cover can be easily removed and changed to a variant of a different color.
The same goes for the stick holder. Its upper part snaps into place only in a certain position. So you can’t close it incorrectly and damage the structure.
You can place the holder in the charging case in any position. And even if you turn the charger over with the lid open, the IQOS holder will not fall out thanks to the magnets.
As before, the device still heats up and does not burn tobacco, bringing the heating temperature to only 350 ° C (tobacco and paper in a cigarette burn at about 800 ° C). The new IQOS 3 DUO still works with Heets sticks.
What's more, the interchangeable holder caps and charger cover are also backward compatible with the previous generation. Therefore, if accessories from IQOS 3 are available, they can be freely combined with the new DUO.
The colors of the IQOS 3 DUO case are the same as those available for the 3rd generation - white, black, gold and blue. However, now the palette is supplemented with a new, copper shade.
Charging of an IQOS 3 DUO
As we have already noted, a new opportunity for IQOS 3 DUO is to use the device twice in a row. There is no need to charge the holder between the first and second sessions. It will take 1 minute 50 seconds to charge the DUO holder for one stick after 2 consecutive sessions (this is almost 2 times faster than IQOS 3). It will take about 3 more minutes to recharge for two sessions in a row.
Also in the new Duo, a kind of smart charging mode is implemented, which made it possible to reduce the charging time of the holder after 2 sticks to 10-20 seconds. And if you use the sticks quickly, for example, make 14 puffs faster than 6 minutes, the charge may be enough for the third time. After each puff, the stick should be allowed to warm up for a couple of seconds.
IQOS 3 DUO supplements and care
Other functional additions include an NFC chip built into the body of the device for a fast connection with a smartphone. With this function, it is convenient to register your IQOS UAE in order to receive an electronic guarantee. With iPhones, the connection may not work: Apple's technology is suspicious of any NFC if it's not their own. In this case, the Duo box contains a unique QR-code with which you can register the gadget just as quickly.
The new model comes with an extended set for cleaning the device: special sticks have also been added to the usual tool for cleaning the holder, which is convenient for cleaning the blade.
IQOS 3 DUO cost
Before the release of IQOS Multi, if it was necessary to use a couple of sticks in a row, a second IQOS was bought. The approach is not the most budgetary, that's why the format of virtually continuous use with the Multi-model appeared.
It is curious that the new IQOS 3 DUO replaced IQOS 3 model. That is, being technologically modernized, the device did not rise in price.
Conclusions and technical characteristics
The new generation of IQOS 3 DUO has remained true to the old principles of devices. Thoughtful ergonomic design and quality materials are the first things you pay attention to when you get to know the device. And the upgraded functionality (two uses in a row, a more powerful battery, an accelerated charging system and an NFC chip) makes the new DUO the most advanced gadget of the entire IQOS line.
