IQOS vs. Electronic Shisha: Is IQOS an E-Shisha?
Find out the difference between IQOS and Electronic Shisha.
Many people often use the term Electronic Shisha to refer to e-cigarettes. In essence, Electronic Shisha (E-Shisha) and e-cigarettes function in similar ways. IQOS however, is different.
Is IQOS an Electronic Shisha?
We’ve heard this question time and time again – is IQOS an E-Shisha?
The answer? While both options are smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes for adult smokers, the answer is no. IQOS is definitely not an E-Shisha!
What are the differences between IQOS and E-Shisha?
Here are all the important differences between IQOS vs E-Shisha.
IQOS is part of a category of products that heat tobacco. These products utilize innovative tobacco heating systems, such as IQOS HeatControl™ to heat tobacco instead of burning it. In comparison, Electronic Shisha – also called E-shisha or e-cigarettes - work by heating and then vaporizing e-liquid.
IQOS utilizes tobacco made of real tobacco leaves that are harvested, and then specially prepared and compressed into tobacco sticks, called HEETS. The precise heating of these tobacco sticks works to deliver tobacco taste, and at the same time, does not burn tobacco. HEETS are not risk free. They are addictive and contain nicotine because it is naturally occurring in tobacco. On the other hand, Electronic Shisha do not utilize real tobacco; instead, they utilize e-liquids available in a variety of flavors at e-cigarette shops. E-liquids come with or without nicotine.
IQOS provides real tobacco taste and experience. HEETS are designed to last around 14 puffs, which is around the same amount of time as a cigarette. Electronic Shisha, however, offer a completely different experience than heated tobacco, due to the usage of e-liquids.
4. Product variety.
Currently there are different IQOS tobacco heating devices – such as, IQOS 3 DUO and IQOS 3 MULTI. IQOS 3 DUO devices have a separate Holder and Charger, while IQOS 3 MULTI devices have those components integrated as an all-in-one device. These different options allow IQOS adult users to select what suits them best.
IQOS is not an E-shisha
IQOS is not an Electronic Shisha, IQOS is a better alternative to cigarettes. It is known that the majority of harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke comes from burning tobacco. Unlike cigarettes, IQOS does not burn tobacco and therefore produces no smoke. Switching completely to IQOS is a better choice for adults smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke. IQOS emits on average 95% lower levels of harmful chemicals compared to cigarettes*.
Important information: It does not necessarily equal a 95% reduction in risk. IQOS is not risk-free.
*Average reductions in levels of a range of harmful chemicals (excluding nicotine) compared to the smoke of a reference cigarette (3R4F). It does not necessarily equal a 95% reduction in risk.

Why adult smokers are making the switch to IQOS?
The IQOS tobacco heating system is a better alternative for adult smokers because it delivers tobacco experience without smoke, ash and cigarette smoke smell.
The heating of tobacco releases real tobacco taste and nicotine that allows adult smokers to experience tobacco without combustion. So it’s no wonder that the IQOS tobacco heating system, also known as “heat-not-burn”, is becoming a common alternative to smoking among adult smokers, as it delivers tobacco experience without smoke, ash or cigarette smoke smell. IQOS is the #1 tobacco heating product* and thousands of adult smokers around the world make the switch to IQOS every day**.
What’s more, IQOS is less likely to bother people around you, as it produces no smoke. It also leaves less lingering smell on hands, clothes and hair compared to cigarettes. All these features make IQOS a better alternative to cigarettes and the reason why more than 12.7 million adult smokers have already chosen to switch to IQOS and leave cigarettes behind***.

What is IQOS HeatControl™ Technology?
IQOS heat-not-burn devices heat tobacco instead of burning it to release tobacco taste with no fire, no ash and less smell than cigarettes.
Read on to find out more about IQOS HeatControl™ Technology.
The idea of heating tobacco instead of burning it has been around for some time. After years of research and development at Philip Morris International (PMI), it finally came to life, offering an innovative alternative to traditional cigarettes for adult smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products.
A cigarette has to be lit in order to be smoked. It burns at 600°C at the tip of the cigarette, but can reach above 800°C during a puff. It is the action of burning that releases most of the harmful and potentially harmful chemicals into the smoke that is inhaled by a smoker.
On the contrary, PMI’s heat-not-burn device IQOS heats up processed tobacco at temperatures of up to 350°C, releasing tobacco taste with no fire, no ash, and no smoke.
Another feature of IQOS is that since it produces less smell than cigarettes, it is less likely to bother people around you. By heating tobacco instead of burning it, IQOS does not produce second-hand smoke and emits on average 95% lower levels of harmful chemicals compared to cigarettes*. It is important to say that it does not necessarily equal a 95% reduction in risk and IQOS is not risk-free.
There are many heat-not-burn products out there, but IQOS is the number one tobacco heating product in the world**. Equipped with the innovative HeatControl™ Technology, IQOS heats tobacco up to 350°C without burning it. This delivers a high quality tobacco experience, without any fire or ash and with less lingering smell on your hands, hair and clothes than cigarettes.
*Average reductions in levels of a range of harmful chemicals (excluding nicotine) compared to the smoke of a reference cigarette (3R4F).

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decision: a new milestone for IQOS.
A key milestone: the FDA concludes that switching completely to IQOS reduces your body’s exposure to harmful or potentially harmful chemicals*.
On July 7, 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a government agency responsible for protecting public health, made a historic decision concerning IQOS. It authorized IQOS and three HeatSticks variants, to be marketed in the US as a modified risk tobacco product (MRTP), with a reduced exposure claim.
IQOS is the first and only tobacco heating system that has completed the US FDA Modified Risk Tobacco Product application process, concluding that switching completely to IQOS reduces your body’s exposure to harmful or potentially harmful chemicals*.
The FDA’s decision came after several years of reviews of the scientific evidence available on IQOS.
After having reviewed the totality of scientific evidence available for IQOS, the US FDA concluded that:
IQOS heats tobacco but does not burn it.
The absence of combustion significantly reduces the production of harmful or potentially harmful chemicals.
Scientific studies have shown that switching completely from cigarettes to IQOS significantly reduces your body’s exposure to harmful or potentially harmful chemicals**.
The FDA’s decision shows that IQOS is a fundamentally different product compared to cigarettes. IQOS is a better choice for adults who would otherwise continue smoking. Unlike cigarettes, which burn tobacco, IQOS heats it instead. This significantly reduces the production of harmful or potentially harmful chemicals compared to cigarette smoke.
For the past 10 years, Philip Morris International built a team of more than 400 scientists and R&D experts and significantly invested towards one goal: creating an alternative to cigarettes for those adult smokers who want a better choice than continued smoking.
So Philip Morris International is proud to celebrate this milestone on its journey, and continue delivering on its promises.
Important information: IQOS is not risk-free. It delivers nicotine, which is addictive.

IQOS vs E-Cigarettes – what is the difference?
IQOS and e-cigarettes are both smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes for adults who would otherwise continue smoking.
Both are electronic devices and do not generate smoke like cigarettes. But there is one feature that distinguishes IQOS from e-cigarettes: contrary to vaporizing an e-liquid, IQOS heats real tobacco, releasing a tobacco vapor with no ash, no smoke and less smell.
IQOS uses specially designed real-tobacco containing sticks, ultra-compact and precisely designed, which ensure a consistent and satisfying taste experience when heated with your IQOS device.
This product is not risk free and is addictive.
