Review of IQOS 3 Multi and user experience, what are the differences from IQOS 3

We tested IQOS 3 and IQOS 3 Multi. The first is a successful evolution of the previous model. The latest version is the Multi version without a pocket charger, as it is said in modern terms - all in one. The user experience is very positive.


I liked both versions of IQOS 3 from the beginning. About IQOS 3 I wrote a great review, as a demanding user, I don't like the shortened endurance of the charger, only up to 20 HEETS, but I'm slowly coming to a reconciliation and carry with me as a backup and second novelty, IQOS 3 Multi.


Although both versions are very different, they have the same HEETS heating method and many other common features, so I will often compare them in the review.


First look at the revolutionary IQOS 3 Multi

Multi comes in the same box as IQOS 3. The main difference is that there are only the device and the source in it, nothing opens or pulls. While it actually opens, a small latch with the logo on the top of the device should be pushed out to insert the HEETS, which is itself closed by the spring.

Do you have a pen? And do you have two? Put them next to each other and then you can see how big IQOS Multi is. It also weights the same. It's a small and very light device.

The first look is astonishing. Unlike Chinese plastic, Multi seems to be aluminium, although, in fact, it's not. In gold, it is a charming piece of electronics, perfectly suited to men's jacket, in the pocket of jeans and women's handbags. Although it is relatively long, you do not have the impression of bending it or even breaking it. The two parts are no longer so beautiful, yet it is a movable part, but on the one hand, it masks the oblique button with a single light.

After overflowing, the entire top exchange part, which is very interestingly secured by a magnet and thanks to which it can allow very free movement, which is unusual in the first days, you feel that you easily eject it by mistake. In any case, it's very addictive, did you spin a lighter like a fidget spinner before? Now you keep clicking on the cover... the magnetic snapping is even more addictive than the smoking itself.


Colours are the same as IQOS 3, velvety grey, hot white, metallic starry blue and brilliant gold. All variants are matte, except glossy gold, grey is rubberized. Various colours of the top will be available at the e-shop, once again the bridle of your creativity can be released.


How to use IQOS Multi

Using IQOS 3 Multi is easy, unlock the latch, insert HEET and hold the button until it vibrates. The next vibration reports a heated charge after 15 seconds, and after five and a half minutes it vibrates for the last 30 seconds or two overlays. Slide the cover out of HEET, the flap closes. Nothing new.

The news comes sooner. No return to the rechargeable battery and you can safely give you another and the next HEETS. Up to ten in a row. And then connect to the source, for example from your mobile phone with USB-C, for 75 minutes. Recharging is significantly less prone to the original recharger, it works reliably even in a car where IQOS is otherwise picky.


One button rules everything. IQOS will not only activate it but also turn it off, restart (hold for 10 seconds) or activate Bluetooth. Check the bottom of the device where the lights and the charger socket are on.


HeatControl remains unchanged, HEETS is heated with the same flask as the other models, so Multi also needs to be properly cleaned. At first, he did not move very much, but as he burned, there was a new, practical cleaner that is packed and cleaned as before.

This makes Multi a device primarily for home, office, and especially for cars where annoying handling will be avoided. The manufacturer is counting on this and offers a car charger and a cigarette charger in the upgraded accessories.


Is IQOS 3 Multi worth it? How's the price and accessibility?

According to our experience, the IQOS Multi is a complementary device, and again, it is attracting a lot of attention, thanks to its design. And in the car, it's invaluable. It fits perfectly in hand, although of course, it can not be as comfortable as the IQOS heater itself.


In e-shops and stores, the first pieces will begin to sell on December 3, 2018, for 2450 CZK (app. 100 euros), if you do not want to miss out on Christmas, definitely go ahead, because the deliveries will initially be smaller and more fluid.
