How to use your IQOS Iluma

Welcome to the Vape Superstore guide on how to operate your IQOS Iluma kit. The latest offering from IQOS takes all the hassle out of your heated tobacco experience. With a revolutionary SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEM and new TEREA tobacco sticks, the IQOS Iluma devices are now maintenance free. Join us as we take you through the unboxing, charging and step by step set up of this innovative heated tobacco device.


What’s in the box:

  • Pocket Charger
  • Holder
  • USB Type C charging cable
  • Power adaptor
  • User manual

Step One - Charging:

Insert your Holder into the Pocket Charger and fully charge the Pocket Charger with the power adaptor and charging cable provided.

Turn on the Pocket Charger by pressing the power button for 4 seconds.

You should see the status lights for the charger and the holder cycle up, showing how much charge your IQOS Iluma has. If you don’t see any lights you will need to charge your kit before you can use it.

Once the IQOS Iluma Pocket Charger and Holder are fully charged, you can remove the holder.

Step Two - Using the Holder:

To check your Holder charge push the button on the Holder.

  • 1 light = 1 use
  • 2 lights = 2 uses

If you don’t see any lights, wait 5 minutes for the holder to charge.

Take a TEREA stick from the pack and gently push the tobacco side into the Holder until the Holder vibrates and the light pulses.

Heating will start automatically or can be activated by pressing the button for 1 second.

Your TEREA stick is ready for use when the Holder vibrates and the lights stay fixed. There is no need to press the button during use, simply inhale on the filter.

How Long does a TEREA tobacco stick last?

Each TEREA stick is designed to last up to 6 minutes or 14 puffs. The way you puff will impact how long the TEREA stick lasts.

When 30 seconds or two more puffs remain, the holder will pulse white lights and vibrate twice. Simply remove the TEREA stick and dispose of it responsibly.

Step 3 - Recharge

Recharge the Holder by placing it back in the Pocket Charger. The Pocket Charger will charge the Holder up to 20 times before needing to be charged.

Do I need to clean the IQOS Iluma?

Other than charging, the IQOS Iluma is completely maintenance free. Simply keep your device charged and you can enjoy hours of hassle free heated tobacco enjoyment.
