About glo™

Is this product for quitting smoking?

It is an alternative to traditional combustible cigarettes

Is glo™ healthier than combustible tobacco?

While neo sticks do not combust tobacco, deliver no ash and minimal odour, this does not imply that this product offers less risk to your health than other tobacco products.

Is glo™ healthier than IQOS?

Both glo and IQOS are heated tobacco products. They are designed and function differently. However, tobacco heating products do deliver lower levels of toxicants than cigarettes but this does not imply that that this product’s impact on health is less than other tobacco products.

Why is there no ash?

Ash comes from burning and this product depends on heat not burn technology.

Less odour, what is the scientific evidence behind this?

We conduct studies comparing the odour of cloth and hands that have been exposed to tobacco vapour and smoke during use. These studies clearly demonstrate that the odour from THP (glo) e-cigarette products is significantly lower than the odour from smoking cigarettes.

Is there any difference in addiction level between cigarettes and heated tobacco?

No, both products contain nicotine and nicotine is an addictive substance.

glo™ Hyper Air

How is the device different vs. glo Hyper X2?

New Hyper X2 Air is our slimmest and lightest device yet, designed with portability in mind: New card-like form factor: 96.85 X 47.1 X 15.8 (12.5 mm in the slimmest part), 75g weight. Full functionality of hyper X2, including an easy access button to the Boost mode. Available in many stylish colour combinations.

Does the device offer customization?

glo Hyper X2 Air is available in many gorgeous colour combinations. However, hyper X2 Air does not have a customisable look currently.

Is there any functional difference between glo Hyper X2 and Hyper X2 Air?

The key difference between Hyper X2 and Hyper X2 Air is the streamlined lightweight design and optimised User Interface with coloured LED indication for X2 Air. The heating principle and the sensory experience are similar.

What does the second button do?

The top (smaller) button of Hyper X2 Air activates heating in the BOOST mode, which offers a shorter time to first puff and a faster taste release. The bottom (larger) button starts heating in STANDARD mode.

How do I clean the device?

Hyper X2 Air has a small cleaning door on the bottom. Please pick it up with your fingernail, open the door, apply the brush to clean the heating chamber from both ends, then close the door and use a little pressure to put it back in place.

Why is there no power adapter in the starter kit?

glo devices recharge via USB-C port which requires a compatible 5v 1A or 2A power adapter. We realise most of our consumers already own multiple power adapters from either previous glo devices or other electronic devices. Rather than supplying another unneeded power adapter, we have removed these to reduce Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) waste generated by our products to contribute to our Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) commitments.

How many back-to-back sessions does the device deliver?

Hyper X2 Air is designed to deliver up to 3 consecutive sessions under typical room temperatures (15 - 25°C). At higher temperatures, the number of consecutive sessions the device can perform may be reduced. Please refrain from using the device in elevated ambient temperatures (above 40°C) as the device may feel hot and may not work due to device safety protection.

Parameters of Hyper X2 Air (number of sessions, charge time)?

Number of sessions from a single charge: up to 20 - Charge time to 100%: up to 120 minutes - Standard mode: pre-heating 30 sec, session 4 min, vibration signal 10s before the session ends - Boost mode: pre-heating 20 sec, session 3 min, vibration signal 10s before the session ends.

After being heated in X2 Air, stick looks less brown than they used to be after hyper+. Does it mean that the device is not heating tobacco to the optimal temperature and I am getting less satisfactory puffs?

Hyper X2 Air has been tuned by our expert team of product developers to provide just the right amount of energy to heat the whole stick rod and generate vapor, while minimizing overheating and browning of paper and stick. With the help of our advanced inductive heating technology, the entire tobacco rod is heated by the heating tube, similar to how a fan-assisted oven evenly distributes heat throughout, delivering a superior taste experience without burning the tobacco. If you prefer a more intense taste experience, try the Boost mode (by holding the boost button) or explore our broad range of tobacco flavors to find the taste that best suits your palate.

What does it mean when my Glo Hyper X2 Air LED flashes red three times?

Your battery is too low. Charge the device using the original adapter and USB-C cable.

Product Knowledge

What are neo™ heating sticks?

The neo™ stick is a tobacco filled stick specially designed to fit the glo™ tobacco heater device. Unlike conventional cigarettes, it should not be lit nor burned as it is only suitable to be heated by the glo™ tobacco heating devices.

What does "Advanced Heat Technology" do?

The technology delivers the optimum temperature to release the great aromatic tobacco tastes. It does this through, rapid heat not burn mechanism and fine temperature control.

What does "Induction Heating Technology" do?

This technology delivers a HP experience with better taste satisfaction and rapid heating for quicker taste release. In induction heating (glo™ Hyper+) induction coils are used to facilitate the generation of heat in a susceptor (the heating chamber) with an electromagnetic field spread throughout the heating chamber. This method means that the heating chamber gets up to temperature quicker and consequently you can heat the neo stick faster.

How does induction work?

Induction coils (inductors) create an electromagnetic field when an alternating current is passed through them. The electromagnetic field will create eddy currents within ferrous metallic objects (susceptors) placed within the field, which then generates heat within the object.

What does the glo™ starter kit include?

Your starter kit contains a glo™ tobacco heater, a reusable cleaning brush, a USB-C cable, and a user manual.

What are the 4 flavours of neo™?

Rich Tobacco, Gold Tobacco, Fresco Mint, Blueberry Switch.

Can I use glo™ Hyper X2 with other cigarettes?

No. Other cigarettes are not compatible with glo™ Hyper X2.

No, when used as directed and intended, neo sticks neither ignite nor burn. Additionally, neo sticks are single use and should not be reused with the glo tobacco heater.

Why is there no power adapter in the starter kit?

glo devices recharge via USB-C port which requires a compatible 5v 1A or 2A power adapter.

Product Quality

What is the “tar” level of neo sticks?

Cigarette tar is a residue that is produced from burning tobacco. In glo™ Hyper X2, tobacco is heated and not burned and as such, there is no cigarette tar. glo™ Hyper X2 has been specifically designed to heat tobacco up to 270°C, delivering nicotine and tobacco flavour without burning.

What is the nicotine level of neo sticks?

neo sticks in glo™ Hyper X2 are designed to deliver a wide range of different sensory experiences. The exact nicotine levels across those sensory experiences will depend on how the user puffs the product, which is the same as for a cigarette.

Where are neo sticks manufactured?

The neo sticks are manufactured at our factories in South Korea.

What are the ingredients in neo sticks?

neo sticks contain specially processed tobacco (reconstituted), real tobacco, glycerol and flavours in the form of a wrapped stick/rod with a filter.

What is the shelf life?

A sealed neo stick pack has a 12 month shelf-life when stored in a cool dry place.

How shall I store the neo sticks?

Store the neo stick pack in a cool dry place, as you would your normal cigarettes. Like cigarettes the product performance may change noticeably if exposed to extremes of hot/cold and dry/wet conditions

Troubleshooting

My filter has broken and left the rest of the neo heatstick in the device. What do I do?

Allow the device to cool for 5 minutes. Open the cleaning door and use the cleaning brush provided through the clean out door to push the stuck neo stick up through the top of the glo™ Hyper X2 device. Once removed, look down the heater tube to check no material remains. If it is not clear, again use the cleaning brush provided through the clean out door to remove the obstruction. If it is clear try a different neo stick. If the problem persists contact customer care and they will advise on a warranty replacement.

After the session, there is smoke coming out from device and stick-what is it? Is it ok?

This sometimes occurs after multiple uses and is normal. Since the heater is still hot after removing the neo stick, any material left in device will generate a tobacco vapour. Allow the device to cool for 5 minutes then clean with the cleaning brush or a tissue.

The glo tobacco heater is not charging. / Device won't turn on. What to do?

Refer to the user manual, are all four lights flashing on your glo™ tobacco heater? If yes, the glo™ tobacco heater may be below the internal battery's minimal temperature. Move to a warmer area and/or wait for the glo tobacco heater to warm up. If problem persists please contact customer care who will advise on available options.

The shutter/slider door is broken. What to do?

The glo™ tobacco heater will still function without the slider door; however, care should be taken to ensure no materials get into the heater tube. Contact customer care and they will advise on available options.
