Your IQOS 3 DUO is charging slowly 

Make sure you’re using the IQOS™ USB Cable and Power Adaptor. Charging your IQOS from a computer USB port, rather than from the IQOS™ Power Adaptor, can be up to 4 times less effective. Similarly, using a third-party cable can be up to 5 times less effective. 

If your IQOS 3 DUO Pocket Charger is already fully charged when you connect it to a power supply, the last status light may blink. This is normal and does not indicate that your Pocket Charger is unable to charge. Conversely, if your IQOS 3 DUO Pocket Charger has been completely discharged, then it may need to be plugged in with the IQOS™ Power Adaptor for up to 20 minutes before any status light patterns appear. 

How to charge IQSO 3 DUO

Your IQOS 3 DUO status lights are blinking

If they’re blinking white twice: Your IQOS 3 DUO may be outside the operating temperature range (0°C-50°C). Alternatively, your IQOS 3 DUO Holder may need to be inserted into the IQOS 3 DUO Pocket Charger with the door closed for auto-cleaning. 

If they’re blinking red: Reset your IQOS 3 DUO. If the red lights persist, contact Customer Care. 

Resetting your IQOS 3 DUO

If your IQOS 3 DUO is charged but not working, you might need to reset it. To do so, press the power button until the lights fade out, then release the button. All status lights will turn off, blink twice, and then progressively fade in, confirming a reset.

Aerosol delivery seems poor

Try cleaning your IQOS 3 DUO Holder. Wait for the device to cool down, then slide the Cap upwards to remove it. Insert the IQOS™ Cleaning Tool and rotate gently. Doing this regularly will reduce residue build-up.

Keep in mind that some parts of the heating chamber and device cannot be accessed with the IQOS™ Cleaning Tool. For these hard-to-reach spots, use the IQOS™ Cleaning Sticks. Do not apply excessive force to avoid breaking or damaging the blade.
