Why Is My IQOS Not Charging?

Like any electronic device, your IQOS might need a little troubleshooting from time to time. One issue some IQOS users may experience is related to device charging.

There are several reasons why you might have a problem charging your IQOS. To solve it, you’ll need to better understand what the issue is.
Depending on what the issue is, you’ll find a few simple checks below to resolve it.

Troubleshooting the IQOS Charger

Problem: If the lights on your device aren’t pulsing or turning on when charging, this could mean that there’s a problem with the charger.
Possible solution
  1. Plug the charger into a power outlet for at least 20 minutes, using the official IQOS charging cable and AC adapter.

    Note: If your IQOS charger is fully drained, a laptop USB port won’t have enough power to recharge it—a power outlet will be needed.
  2. Reset your Charger by holding down the Power button until all lights blink briefly blink.

    If your IQOS won’t charge after taking these steps, it could mean that there’s an issue with your charging cable or adapter.

Troubleshooting your IQOS charging cable and adapter

Problem: If the lights aren’t pulsing or turning on when charging your IQOS charger, this could be a sign that either your AC adapter or cable isn’t working.
Possible solution
  1. Ensure you’re using the original IQOS AC Adapter
  2. Check the adapter and cable for damage

    If your IQOS AC adapter or cable have failed, you may need to buy a replacement.
