Heat-not-burn tobacco Glo pro Slim with the thinnest body in history, surprisingly excellent taste!

From the British American Tobacco Japan (BAT) heated tobacco device glo brand, a new product glo pro Slim that uses a thin type tobacco stick is available nationwide. It was released on September 20, 2021 at the “glo store” and “glo spot”, and on September 21 at the glo & VELO official online shop.

Glo Pro Slim features the thinnest slim body in the history of Glo with a thickness of about 15.5mm, and the stick used is not the thick type for Glo Hyper but the thinner slim stick.

Here, the heavy smoker writer actually uses Glo Pro Slim to review its usability.

Thinned with the same functions of Glo Pro” that realized the best taste with a thin stick

Introduced in October 2019, Glo Pro” uses the same induction heating method as the IH cooking heater, which is familiar to kitchen appliances. In addition to the “normal mode” (heating temperature 240 to 250 ° C), it has a taste-enhancing function. A model equipped with a “boost mode” (heating temperature 260-280 ° C). Glo Pro Slim is a slim body that retains its powerful functions.
Speaking of Glo”, the body was thick so that the heat inside was not transmitted to the outside, but Glo Pro Slim adopted a sharp design that eliminated waste to the limit. It can be confirmed from the appearance that it has the minimum necessary shape in which a cylindrical furnace (chamber) for heating an elongated stick and a flat battery are connected.
The tobacco stick that can be used with this model is not the thick stick for Glo Hyper, but the thinner glo Slim series that has been used since the birth of Glo.

Press and hold until you vibrate once and then release to activate “Standard mode” (LED light blue). Press and hold until you vibrate twice and then release to activate “boost mode” (LED blue). In addition, the circular LED that can see the rest of the smoking time, which was the trademark of Glo”, is not installed in this model.

Compare Glo Pro Slim with conventional models Glo Pro & Glo Nano

The conventional compact model Glo Nano is a small size as a whole, but it is 21 mm thick, it is difficult to put it in a chest pocket, etc., and it was a model that could not be handled as compactly as expected. On the other hand, Glo Pro Slim is 15.5mm thin, although the height is increased by about 3mm. The weight was slightly increased to about 74g compared to about 61g of Glo Nano. However, the form is closer to a card type, and it is certainly easier to put it in your chest pocket.

The heating temperature of Glo Nano can be selected from the normal mode (240 to 250 ° C), but Glo Pro Slim can also use “Boost Mode”. The number of bottles that can be sucked on a full charge for 60 minutes was 10, but the Glo Pro Slim can now suck about 16 bottles on a full charge for 90 minutes. By the way, Glo Pro is heavy at about 98g, but the fact that it can suck about 20 bottles on a full charge for 90 minutes is one step ahead of Glo Pro Slim.

In terms of functions such as “boost mode” (smoking time 3 minutes) that allows you to smoke in 10 seconds and “normal mode” that allows you to smoke for 4 minutes after waiting 20 seconds, Glo Pro is also Glo Pro Slim. Is the same. By the way, the smoking time of Glo Nano is as short as 3.5 minutes.

For charging, Glo Pro and Glo Pro Slim use a USB Type-C cable, and Glo Nano uses a Micro USB cable.

I tried using Glo Pro Slim.

The tobacco sticks used were the representative stimulating menthol type “Kent Neostick Intensely Fresh” and the regular type “Kent Neostick Rich Tobacco X”, which is characterized by a strong taste. I tried it in “normal mode” and “boost mode” respectively.

First, when I tasted “Rich Tobacco X” in “Normal Mode”, the taste of moderately mild tobacco spread in my mouth. Glow Pro had a strong sense of gorgeousness including the design, but it is not bad to taste the authentic tobacco taste with the slim body of Glo Pro Slim.

Furthermore, when I smoked in “boost mode”, I could enjoy a strong taste like a cigarette even with a simple and slim body. It’s also like a “wolf in sheep’s skin” and it’s really fun.

Next, I tasted “Intensely Fresh” in “Normal Mode”.

The swelling mint feeling that jumps into the mouth sharply while being mild is delicious. The thin stick has a long history, so it has a well-balanced impression. Especially for the menthol type, it is a bit different from the thick stick menthol type for Glo Hyper.

However, when I smoked in the “boost mode” of Glo Pro Slim, it was good that the menthol jumped sharply into the back of my throat and kicked, but I got a feeling of burning and the balance was lost.

Sophisticated design, strong taste! Secret weapon Glo Pro Slim

If you’ve been using Glo Nano for compactness, you should switch to Glo Pro Slim. Smoking time is extended from 3 minutes 30 seconds to 4 minutes, and you can also use “boost mode” when you want to enjoy a savory taste. In addition, the point that portability and storability are improved cannot be overlooked.

Glo Pro users should note that the number of continuous use has decreased from 20 to 16. It can be said that the taste is exactly the same, so if portability is a priority, switching to Glo Pro Slim is an ant.
