What's the difference between IQOS ORIGINALS DUO and IQOS ILUMA?

How advanced is the new IQOS ILUMA? Well, it’s got all the features you know from IQOS ORIGINALS DUO, such as:

  • 2 consecutive uses
  • a fast-charging holder
  • Pocket Chargers with 20 uses

But what are the differences? Well, IQOS ILUMA and IQOS ORIGINALS DUO have unique features.


IQOS ILUMA Pocket Chargers now come in new colours, and there are stylish new accessories available for them. Specifically designed for the IQOS ILUMA, New TEREA tobacco sticks offer the taste you enjoy, along with an improved draw and generous vapour.

But the biggest difference? It’s inside.

IQOS ILUMA’s SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEMTM heats tobacco from within a sealed stick with no blade. And no blade means:

  • no cleaning
  • no tobacco residue
  • no more broken blades
  • easy insertion and extraction of TEREA tobacco sticks

But that’s not all! We’ve added advanced features:

  • Autostart: preheating as soon as you insert the tobacco stick
  • Smart gestures: enabled by the Q-Lab app.
  • Double tap: to feel how much of the experience is left.
  • Check battery status: all you need to do is lift the holder.
  • IQOS Originals Features

    IQOS ORIGINALS DUO has original colours and accessories. But those aren’t the only unique things about IQOS ORIGINALS DUO:

    • it uses HEATCONTROLTM technology with blade heating
    • compact HEETS tobacco sticks with visible tobacco end
