Get started with IQOS ILUMA.
Your IQOS ILUMA has two main components: The Pocket Charger and the Holder. The Pocket Charger is a powerbank for your Holder - and the Holder has a chamber for inserting tobacco sticks.
Charge before use. Press the button on your Pocket Charger for 4 seconds to turn the device ON/OFF. Check the Holder status lights to see if you have two, one or none experiences left in your Holder.
Gently insert a Smartcore tobacco stick to activate Autostart or press the Holder button to start. One vibration and pulsing lights shows it’s heating up. Two vibrations and lights on means it’s ready for use.
Use your IQOS ILUMA.
When it gives off two vibrations, your IQOS has 2 puffs remaining.
Simply remove the heatstick and add a new for next time.
Charging your IQOS ILUMA
Tap the Pocket Charger button to check the battery level.
If the light strip flashes yellow 3 times, charge your Pocket Charger
by using the official IQOS cable and AC power adapter until fully lit.
When charging your Holder, the two round lights will be pulsing.
Two round lights on your Holder means its fully charged for two uses.
One round light means you have one use left. Yellow blinking lights
indicates your Holder needs a recharging.
Remove any Smartcore tobacco stick from the Holder and insert into your
Pocket Charger. The two round lights will indicate that your Holder is
recharging and remain on, when you have one or two uses available.
Advanced features and smart gestures
Your IQOS ILUMA Holder starts preheating automatically after you
insert a SMARTCORE tobacco stick. This feature is available by default and can be
disabled through the IQOS app.
By lifting up the Holder when you are not in an experience, it will show
how many uses are left by displaying 1 or 2 lights
Simply double-tap your Holder during the use and the device will
vibrate to indicate how much of the experience is left:
3 vibrations: 75-50%
2 vibrations: 50-25%
1 vibration: <25%
IQOS ILUMA usage tips
Inserting SMARTCORE tobacco sticks
Make sure you only use SMARTCORE tobacco sticks with your IQOS ILUMA. They are single use so ensure you do not reinsert a used one.
Keeping battery power
Charging your IQOS ILUMA Pocket Charger on a daily basis is the best way to ensure you can always enjoy your IQOS. Always charge the Pocket Charger with the manufacturer-approved power adaptor.
Customising your device
You can simply enable/disable the smart gestures through the IQOS app and you can also tune certain parameters such as light intensity and vibrations.
Do not use IQOS ILUMA and SMARTCORE tobacco sticks with previous IQOS generations, as this may cause damage to your device. Do not ingest or disassemble SMARTCORE tobacco sticks.
