Nicotine is naturally present in the tobacco used in HEETS. It is released in the vapor that is generated during the IQOS usage.
Placing a regular cigarette in an IQOS device is not recommended and will not achieve the same satisfying real tobacco flavour as HEETS. This is because cigarettes haven't been designed for the same purpose. The tobacco in regular cigarettes is not compressed, and the filter lacks the advanced components developed especially for HEETS, such as the:
- Cooling plug
- Air-flow chamber
- Protective wrapping
⚠ Attempting to use conventional cigarettes in your IQOS device may damage the heating blade.
There are seven unique and distinctive flavours of HEETS available for exclusive use in IQOS. Find out more about them here.
