Philip Morris' e-cigarette iQOS 2.4 Plus charger pocket charger was disassembled!
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 1]
- It has been several months since the launch of the new iQOS, but I hesitated to purchase it because there seemed to be no major change.
To be precise, I thought that I would not be able to buy it immediately, even though it was the case before, because there was stock at a tobacco shop I happened to go to.
I didn't intend to disassemble the new model, but I thought, "Aren't you going to disassemble the new model?"I would like to post the decomposition method because I also received an inquiry that said.
To say first, the decomposition method is the same as the original model?Because it was a feeling that said, I think that it is very easy if there is a thing that I have broken down the first model.
The first model was white, but this new model chose navy!
Now, I would like to disassemble iQOS 2.4 Plus.

- First of all, the tool used for disassembly is exactly the same as the iQOS initial model, but if you are disassembling for the first time, please align the tools listed at the bottom because it is cheap.
I don't think there are many people who have both iQOS white and navy, but do you know that the feeling when you touch both pocket charger and holder is different?
Both have a sense of luxury, but while the white is smooth, the navy is rough feeling.
I do not think that it is strong in scratches, so please be careful when disassembling.

- The cap (lid) is opened and disassembled, but in the image, an iron spatula is used.
The work efficiency is good if you do not care about the wound because the iron spatula can put more force, but the first use the iron spatula, after the cover floats, it leads to scratch prevention.
The tool is inserted and disassembled as shown in the image, but at first it is hard.
If you float even a little, I think that you can understand the feeling that comes off if you try to slide the spatula sideways as it is.
It is not particularly difficult if the structure is understood because it is only fixed with a plastic nail on the inside.

- It is a state that has been sliding sideways from the state that floated a little earlier.You can remove it if you insert the tool into one lap of the cover as it is and make it twist.
There is a double-sided tape in the yellow arrow part in STEP7, so if the cover does not come off easily, that is the cause.
Let's try to remove the tape using a spatula.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 5]
- I was able to remove one of the covers.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 6]
- I think that I was able to remove the cover earlier, but let's remove the cover in the same way because there is a cover in the same way on the opposite side (back)!
About half of the total is completed by the decomposition so far.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 7]
- The structure is the same as the initial ICOS, but inside the cover is divided into parts that say battery, holder, and foundation.
The image part is where the holder is stored, but it is fixed with a plastic claw in the red frame part.
Because the other side floats if all the nail is pushed to the outside, it is possible to remove the holder case.
It is an image to open it outward and push it down.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 8]
- I was able to remove the case where the holder is stored.
It is a good idea to look at this image before disassembling and grasp the image that the part comes off.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 9]
- Next, remove the internal battery.
There are no screws to fix the battery, but I think it is now fixed with plastic claws.
If you push the battery with your finger as shown in the image, it will come off, so let's push it up slowly.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 10]
- I think that it is possible to confirm that the connector is stuck in the base when it is possible to remove the battery to some extent than the main body, but you can easily remove it if you pull by nailing the connector in the direction of the arrow.
Because there is a possibility that it peels off each connector of the base side if you pull it forcibly, please work carefully so as to hold it by hand.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 11]
- I was able to remove the battery from the main unit.
If you need to replace the battery, I think you should replace this part, but the battery is not sold.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 12]
- Battery details.
As far as the voltage and ampere are confirmed, has not changed so much compared to the initial model?I felt.
It was said that the charging time of the holder was reduced by about 20%, but unfortunately I did not feel the perceived speed so much as an impression I saw using it.
In addition, there is no parts sales of the initial iQOS, and the new iQOS of this time also looked for parts lightly, but could not find it.
So, i think that the current situation will depend on the manufacturer even if it breaks down or wants to replace the battery.
- [iQOS (Aikos) 2.4 Plus Pocket Charger Decomposition Method and Repair STEP 13]
- I think that it is only the foundation as the remaining parts, but it has become possible to easily remove by hand.
I don't know if iQOS 3 will be released in the future, but iQOS 1 to 2 was released quite early, so I'm looking forward to more iQOS in the future.
The list price of the new iQOS was about 10,000 yen, but I feel that this acquisition was close to a miracle because I have seen it in the 30,000 yen range at a recycling shop etc.
In addition, the new iQOS was a complaint that you can get surely if you order on the net, but the phone did not connect even if you try to call and look.
In the future, I would like to take a look at JT's Plume Tech, which will be a rival to iQOS, and The Glow of British American Tobacco Japan, if we have time.
