IQOS devices have become increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional smoking. These devices use specially designed tobacco cartridges that are heated rather than burned, delivering a flavorful experience without the need for combustion. Among the top choices for IQOS users are HEETS, Fiits and TEREA tobacco cartridges. In this blog post, we will explore the differences between these cartridges, taking into account their heating technology, components, and compatibility with different IQOS devices.
HEETS is the leading brand of tobacco cartridges that are designed specifically for IQOS DUO devices. These cartridges utilize a heating blade technology, which heats the tobacco instead of burning it. This technology ensures a consistent flavor release and a satisfying experience. HEETS cartridges are made up of three main components: a tobacco plug, a polymer film, and a filter. The tobacco plug contains specially processed and finely-ground tobacco that is carefully selected and blended to deliver a rich and full-bodied taste. The polymer film acts as the medium through which the heat is transferred to the tobacco, while the filter helps to cool down the aerosol generated during heating.
Fiits are tobacco sticks designed for use with the lil SOLID 2.0 and lil SOLID Ez tobacco heaters. They are made of different types of tobacco, which is ground into powder, mixed with water, glycerin, guar gum, cellulose fibers. This mixture is dried to form a tobacco sheet used with lil heating technology.
Fiits are heated using a heating blade that heats the tobacco sheet to a temperature of up to 350°C
Fiits are currently available in variations of tobacco blend with menthol, tobacco blend with menthol and dark garden fruit notes and classic – Fiit REGULAR.
Please note that the availability of flavors may vary depending on your location.
TEREA is a newer entrant in the market of tobacco cartridges for IQOS ILUMA devices, offering a unique smoking experience. TEREA cartridges are specifically designed for the IQOS ILUMA devices.
They are made of different types of tobacco, which is ground into powder, mixed with water, glycerin, guar gum, cellulose fibers. This mixture is dried to form a tobacco sheet used with the SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEM™.
