Merry Christmas from the Heat not Burn UK team! So it’s that time again. The turkey is eaten, the kids have filled the house with shredded wrapping paper, everyone’s drunk a little too much (except me) and you’ve taken refuge behind the computer for a while to catch up on your favourite nicotine technology.
Over the last few weeks the team at Heat not Burn UK have widened our horizons a little, and now we’re interested in pod mods as well. We like these for pretty much the same reasons as we like HnB devices; they’re a much safer alternative to smoking, without the complications of a more conventional e-cigarette. If you want to get away from lit tobacco, aren’t interested in messing around with coils and don’t fancy an iQOS for some reason, a simple device that uses pre-filled, disposable juice pods could be just what you’re looking for.
As you’ve probably noticed from the number of reviews we’ve had lately, things are pretty busy in the world of Heat not Burn. Most of the action is in the shape of new products, and we’ve been getting our hands on as many of these as possible so we can let you know what you’re like. That’s not all that’s going on, though. As HnB’s popularity grows, governments and the public health industry are really starting to sit up and take notice. My worry is that this is going to be e-cigarettes all over again; that a great new technology is going to be attacked by people who make a living out of complaining about cigarettes. Sure enough, there are signs of that happening in a few places around the world – but there are some more positive things happening too. Let’s have a look at the latest news from the wild and wacky world of heated tobacco products.
Right now I feel the same way about Heat not Burn as I did about vaping when I first discovered the whole world of devices that existed beyond the cigarette-style things I started with. From one really practical device – the iQOS – a couple of years ago, the market has expanded rapidly; we seem to be hearing about new products every week now, and quite a few of them are making it into our hands. You might remember how long it took us to actually get to review an iQOS in the early days of the site. Well, it’s not like that now.
