What is vaping?
Vaping refers to inhaling a vapour from an e-cigarette (electronic cigarettes) and is a less harmful way to consume nicotine compared to smoking cigarettes. When heated, the e-liquid inside the e-cigarette turns into vapour, which is then inhaled. This is similar to how water is turned into steam when it is boiled in a kettle.
What's the difference between vapes and e-cigarettes?
The first are pod devices. Like the IQOS VEEV, these have a battery and a self-contained e-liquid pod or cartridge. The second are ‘tank’ devices. These contain a ‘tank’ that you can refill with different flavours. Vapes consist of three main components; e-liquid, battery, and the tank or pod/cartridge that contains the heating element to produce the vapour.
Is vaping safe?

Can vaping help me to quit smoking?
No, electronic cigarettes are not the therapeutic products to help you quit smoking. While electronic cigarettes are being used worldwide by smokers to help support them to quit smoking, they are by no means cessation aids.

If you want advice on how to use your e-cigarette to help you quit smoking, then speak with your doctor or local stop-smoking service.
What is the difference between IQOS VEEV vape and regular coil products?
Unlike the wick-and-coil system widely used in e-cigarettes, IQOS VEEV contains a mesh heater that is in constant contact with the e-liquid. This means the liquid is always being heated to deliver a consistent vaping experience. Its smart digital control detects when liquid levels are low – which helps avoid overheated liquid that can give you a ‘burnt taste’. The pre-filled, pre-sealed VEEV flavour caps contain pharmaceutical-grade nicotine for purity. The caps are available in a variety of flavours.
