IQOS ILUMA ONE vs. IQOS ORIGINALS ONE: What is the difference?

IQOS News 15/05/2023

IQOS ILUMA ONE is the most compact model of our new heated tobacco devices with advanced induction technology, ideal for on-the-go. Discover the differences between our IQOS ILUMA ONE and the IQOS 3 MULTI and IQOS ORIGINALS ONE.

The new IQOS ILUMA ONE will support all the familiar features of the IQOS ORIGINALS ONE and build on the existing design of the IQOS 3 MULTI:

  • 20 consecutive uses without recharging
  • Compact all-in-one design
  • Ideal for on-the-go



Although the devices look similar at first glance, there is a crucial difference on the inside: the HEATCONTROL TECHNOLOGY of the IQOS ORIGINALS ONE and IQOS 3 MULTI regulates the heat by means of a heating blade inside the device, thus heating the specially developed HEETS tobacco sticks instead of burning them.

The IQOS ILUMA ONE, on the other hand, uses the innovative SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEMTM, which gently heats TEREA tobacco sticks by induction for a consistent tobacco experience from the inside out.

TEREA tobacco sticks instead of HEETS tobacco sticks.

Unlike IQOS ORIGINALS ONE and IQOS 3 MULTI, IQOS ILUMA ONE uses specially developed TEREA tobacco sticks. The fact that they are closed at both ends means that there is no tobacco residue in the device that needs to be removed regularly. Therefore, there is no need for cleaning of the device.
