What’s the difference between IQOS 3 DUO and the new IQOS ILUMA series?

How advanced is the new IQOS ILUMA? Well, it’s got all the convenient features you know from IQOS 3 DUO, such as 2 consecutive uses, 20 uses in one charge and fast-charging holder.

But what are the differences? IQOS ILUMA series and IQOS 3 DUO each have their own unique features, however IQOS ILUMA exceeds its predecessor by far. That’s why we made it, right?

IQOS ILUMA series has a selection of 3 devices. Two of them – ILUMA PRIME and ILUMA ONE offer a new look with countless personalisation options and one of them – IQOS ILUMA – uses the familiar look and shape of IQOS 3 DUO. But look is just one thing, the other, and more important one, is what’s inside.

New technology, new benefits

Inside each IQOS ILUMA system, there’s the Smartcore Induction System™ that heats from within with no blade. And no blade means:

  • No cleaning
  • No dirt left in the device
  • No more broken blades
  • Easy insertion and extraction
  • Consistent performance

This is the biggest difference from IQOS 3 DUO, which uses HeatControl™ technology, and heats using blade.

But that is not all, we have added even more advanced features enabled by IQOS App:

  • smart gestures – lift to see battery status, tap twice to see how much experience is left.
  • firmware upgrade and device locating if it gets lost.
