The Hohm Tech batteries review and I’ll be checking out a few of the range and sent to me by the US based company with a name pronounced as Home Tech!

Everyone has their own favourite battery brands when it comes to vaping and I’m no exception on that score!

Hohm Tech cell complete range

So…will these batteries change my mind and open me up to new possibilities?

Who Are Hohm Tech?

Hohm Tech has been named as the top No1 brand by the U.S vaping industry, apparently for the high quality and superb performance of their cells…we shall see.

To be brutally honest I have never heard of this company!

This is not really surprising as I am based in the UK, normally I use batteries available in my local stores.

The company is currently trying to receive more recognition in Europe market.

Hohm Tech say:

We are committed to being a market leader in product innovation and to our customers in a relentless drive to satisfy the need for product safety and secure their unwavering loyalty.

The Hohm Tech batteries are designed at their HQ in California USA, and are made at an Indonesian chemistry plant located just outside of Jakarta.

Which Batteries Did Hohm Tech Send Me?

I was sent 5 packs of batteries to test: the X6, 18650’s and X4 and 21700’s.

HΩ Alone, HΩ Life, HΩ Work, HΩ Run and HΩ Run and XL.

Hohm Tech grown2 and sherlock2

Hohm Tech does have two other battery types available that were not sent to me, and they are: HΩ Grown 2 206650 and Sherlock 2 HΩ 20700.

Each battery is a flat top cell with the Ω sign moulded into the positive connection point for authenticity.

And each comes with a colourful battery wrap with lots of information printed on it, including something I have never seen in all my years of vaping, an ideal wattage and maxim wattage, and each cell also includes battery cautions.

The cells are individually wrapped in plastic shrink wrap when new and have their own card box, 2 cells come in each outer cardboard box.

These battery cells were sent to me direct by Hohm tech, for the purpose of review.

As always my views and thoughts are my own after a considerable testing period.

Hohm Tech Batteries – Real World Testing

Just so you know I don’t have any fancy testing equipment to tell you exactly what each battery is doing.

So I’m left to real world testing of the cells, I simply bunged them in to vaping devices and used them, after fully charging them all of course lol.

digicharger d4 nitecore

As a side note I have been using all these batteries for nearly 3 weeks, each battery does recharge each time to its fullest capacity 3.6v according to my Nitecore D4 Digicharger!

Let’s take a look at each type of battery sent and my usage of them.

HΩ Alone 18650 Li-ion Battery Cell

Hohm Tech 18650 Alone

  • 44w max 56w
  • Capacity: 3309mAh
  • Max Charge Rate: 4.14A

I have been testing these cells as though they were designed for mouth to lung single cell vaping.

I’ve been using the Aspire Deco, with a 1Ω coil at 20 to 25w in my Vapefly Holic MTL RDA.

Hohm Tech Batteries- Test Result

I was very impressed.

I used this setup for a complete 2 days and only by the end of the second day did I feel a drop in the performance, there was plenty of battery power left for at least a couple more hours.

HΩ Life 4 18650 Li-ion battery cell

Hohm Tech 18650 life 4

  • 63w max 85w
  • Capacity: 3015mAh
  • Max Charge Rate: 4.43A

I tested these cells as duals in my Geekvape Aegis Legend with a pair of 0.2Ω coils at 60 to 75w in my Oxva Arbiter RTA.

Hohm Tech Batteries – Test Result

I tested at 60w to start with and chain vaping and the batteries lasted a good 3.5 hours, I was really tooting away with them.

After a recharge I pumped up the wattage to 75w and used them as I normally would at 75w I was impressed the charge lasted a good 6 hours.

HΩ Work 2 18650 Li-ion battery cell

18650 work 2

  • 73 max 104w
  • Capacity: 2547mAh
  • Max Charge Rate: 3.82A

Again I tested these cells as a duo in series, using my Noisy Cricket 2 with a pair of 0.6Ω Clapton coils in my Hellvape Passage RDA.

Blimey this setup sure delivers!

Not expecting the batteries to last that long, as the voltage I set was around 4.5v.

I was able to vape very comfortably for around 4 hours before the sudden drop in performance, by comparison a pair Sony vtc5’s will only me last about 3.5 hours before the performance drop – cool.

I swapped out the coils for a 0.2Ω pair and set the dial on full approx 6v on parallel, I wasn’t able to vape this for long as the heat was too much for my micro lungs lol.

HΩ Run 21700 Li-ion battery cell

21700 run

  • 112w max 142w
  • Capacity: 3023mAh
  • Max Charge Rate: 5.29A

For these cells I decided to use them as singles in my Oxva Velocity first with the pod and a Unipro 0.15Ω coil at 45/55w, and then switching out for the 510 adaptor and my Wotofo Srpnt RDA with a 5mm 0.5Ω coil at 80w.

Hohm Tech Batteries – Test Result

1st the pod, and I used the setup as I normally would, the battery life was very good and comparable to any of my Molicel 21700 batteries.

My vape time was a complete day – in fact I was able to pick the device up the next morning and toot on it for a further hour or so before it needed a recharge!

Next I popped on the 510 adaptor and my Srpnt RDA, I did an hour of chain vaping followed by a more normal style of vape.

I timed the usage and found that after 5 hours of continuous use I had to recharge.

HΩ Run XL 21700 Li-ion battery cell

21700 run xl

  • 87w max 111w
  • Capacity: 4007mAh
  • Max Charge Rate: 6.01A

This time I chose to use my VooPoo X217 as this mod is the only one I own that accepts dual 21700’s.

I popped a new MT M1 0.13Ω coil in my VooPoo Matt Tank.

Hohm Tech Batteries – Test Result

90w watts is a breeze for the Maat tank and for these batteries!

I got nearly 2 days of normal vape time with this setup, dropping the wattage after a recharge to 65w I mixed my vape style with chain vaping to normal and back again and still was able to get more than a complete day vape time!

br25 bike light nightcore

As an extra test I borrowed my brothers Nitecore BR25 bike light, this torch will take a 21700, so I used one of the HΩ Run XL 21700 cells.

Hohm Tech Batteries – Test Result

Leaving the light on, on full power (that’s 1400 lumens) it took 2 hours 15 minutes to run completely out from a full charge, on low power the battery lasted nearly 15 hours – amazing!

I am a heavy vaper, therefore the results I got from these tests cannot be classed as totally accurate – your results may be different to mine!

Important Vaping Battery Safety Tips!

Like any other battery you are responsible for your own safety while using or charging.

I always recommend that any battery be charged with a suitable external battery charger.

Never charge your batteries over night or while you are out.

Do not ever carry unprotected batteries on your person or in bags, always use a protective plastic case or silicone sleeves.

It’s been many years since I took the electronics course at school, so I would suggest especially to new vapers who don’t know about Ohms law and battery safety to take a look at some of the fascinating articles available online.

Even old hands like me need to bone up occasionally!

A big thanks goes out to, Hohm Tech for reaching out and sending these battery cells to me for testing!

Pros

  • Nice battery wraps with plenty of info
  • Excellent battery life

Cons

  • A little on the more expensive side compared to some other brands

Final Review Verdict

I’m very impressed with the battery life I have gotten from these cells!

The battery wraps have a great deal of information on them, maybe a little too much information for the average user, it makes the wraps look a little cluttered, but you can’t argue that Hohm tech haven’t covered all the bases!

So…do you use Hohm Tech batteries?

How do they stack up to more well known brands?

Please let me know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below…

Hi my name is Kevin, I started vaping back in 2009 mainly because my little boy at 3 years old was starting to copy the way daddy smoked a cigarette! Over the years I have gained a good amount of experience with different types of vaping hardware but I'm just a normal guy who enjoys sharing my experiences. This is why I started my Youtube vape review channel in 2014. To date the channel has had over 500,000 views. Being disabled, vaping has given me a gateway to meeting people from all different walks of life, many of those I would not have met under other circumstances. The way I look at my reviews is, if I can convince just one person to give up the stinky’s my job is done. I class myself as a tinkerer as I like to take things apart to see how they work and put them back together, yes that includes e-cigarette mods! One day I would like to be able to design my own mod. I am a dedicated father, and husband to my sweetheart of nearly 30 years! Family to me comes before anything else.
