    The no-burn technology feature makes sure that it doesn’t produce a burning sensation when vaping. So, you will never feel the tobacco has a burning smell.

    As a beginner, you might be wondering how to use the IQOS 3 Duo vape pen. For ease here are the steps of using this vape pen.

    Step 1: Make sure you fully charge the holder and charger

    Step 2: Now press the power button for at least four seconds. This is to turn on the device. Also, do this when turning it off.

    Note: A fully charged IQOS 3 Duo allows you to use it twenty times.

    Step 3: Ensure you have your HEET or tobacco stick and gently insert it on the e-cigarette. Please don’t twist it when inserting as the stick may break. Additionally, the blade can break too.

    Step 4: Press the button and you will feel a vibration. Give it a few seconds and when you feel two consecutive vibrations wait for the two lights to go on. That will mean that the device is ready for use.

    Step 5: When you feel two additional vibrations when vaping it means that the HEET is almost over. Slide the device into two and remove the tobacco stick.

    Step 6: Tap on the button to check how many uses you are left with. In case you don’t feel like vaping again. Place it back on the holder.
