In the crystal structure of the title compound, C8H 18N22-+ 2I-·CH3CN, the dication lies on a mirror plane containing the molecular dication threefold axis. The structure displays C-H⋯I interactions between H atoms of the 1,4-dimethyl-1,4-diazoniabicyclo[2.2.2]octane dication and the iodide anions. The H⋯I distances are in the range 2.96-3.18 (4) A. The dications pack forming channels along the b axis, which contain the iodide anions and acetonitrile solvent molecules.
