We have been sent quite a few heat not burn/heated tobacco devices from our great friends at www.uwootech.com over in China in the past couple of years, and we have always found them to be very dependable devices. They have just sent us another one to take a good look at; the Uwoo Y2.
A unique take on heat-not-burn
As research has highlighted, smokers tend to smoke because they enjoy it. I certainly did and probably still would if not for the eye-watering cost of smokes in the UK (not quite as eye-watering as Australia mind). While vaping and, of course, heat-not-burn have both come a long way in providing that enjoyment – aka the Pleasure Principle – to many smokers, there’s just too much faff involved with both product types. Can’t say I blame them to be fair, there is a level of faff with both but, and it is a big but, the level of faff coincides with the experience you are trying to get.
Simple is the name of the game
Last year, we reviewed the Uwoo Y1. This year, Uwootech sent us their latest device, the Uwoo Ym. Unlike most other devices I have managed to get my hands on (thanks boss!), the Uwoo Ym uses a spike instead of a blade. Using a spike allows manufacturers the option of compacting their device around smaller heating circuitry. Smaller does not necessarily mean better, however.
