The main idea behind heated tobacco products (also known as a heat-not-burn vaporizer) is that a battery-powered heating system inside of it heats up the tobacco (200°C- 350°C comparing to 600°C that happens to be in the regular cigarette) from inside the heating stick injected in the device, which while heating generates aerosol that contains nicotine. Since tobacco is not being burned in this type of device, the level of harmful chemicals is much lower.
Our recent Reports provide detailed information about various heat-no-burn devices, their comparison, and ratings, the technology behind each, and a description of the devices. Some devices from brands Glo, IQOS, Lil, Pulze, and Ploom are being fully analyzed in the report with all their internal components.

Most of the devices seem to have the puff count.
Two main types of a temperature control were found during multiple testings of the heated tobacco products devices.
Expert opinion on the devices is being given at the end of each report.
