    That's the stuff.
    It's able to be micro-thin & still produce a charge but it can be layered & molded to form structures, the possibilities with Graphene are mind boggling. For instance batteries are often the heaviest component in an electronic device but what if you remove the battery & instead of a plastic shell on say your smart phone, you have a Graphene shell which acts as both electronics housing & battery. It means you can have a lighter phone, that charges back up much faster when drained, that will never explode!

    I've got some of these Hohm Life batteries from the US. I haven't used any of them yet. What worries me most is that when I
    bought them I also got 4 for my parents

    Hopefully this is just a one off thing. All the reviews and stuff I have read about them elsewhere have been great.

    I guess I will have to let them know to be careful with them.....or maybe I should get them something else and take them back.

    Alas, quite a few fall into that category shit for brains, and they are the ones that give vapers a bad name when they f..... up. I will give you one example. A dude that I know purchased one of them Kamrey E-Pipes which is nothing more than a mech mod. He comes to me and complains that the bowl is getting rather warm when he holds the fire button down (No 10 second time out) I ask him why the hell he holds the button down for so long. He replies that at first it was vaping ok, but after a while it took longer to heat up the juice......I check his battery and the darn thing is nearly flat....any wonder.....Try replacing your battery or charging it.

    The real Hohm life batteries are supposed to be safe chemistry batteries I believe - being a modified H series LG battery. The one that blew up definitely wasn't safe chemistry. The Hohm Life batteries are supposed to have a unique identifier tag on them which you can check for authenticity.

    If the batteries check out, they should be fine.

    If you are unsure about the batteries, you should contact Hohmtech and ask them about the chemistry used, and how to verify that your batteries are authentic.

    Wow that's some explosive energy. Definitely would not like to have that in my pocket when it pops.🤕

    Yeah I did a fair bit of research before buying them.

    I haven't checked the Authenticity but I will.

    Generally helpful article, plus a video, about batteries.
    plus some hints about what to avoid.

    Another new battery tech with exciting prospects for us as vapers, batteries that could run 3 times longer, with no risk of ever exploding:

    I don't doubt the mod has a big part to play. My Provari Radius is very picky about how much load it will put on a battery versus my Evic Mini which is a less concerned.

    Any electrical engineers here who know how to pick a mod that doesn't respect the battery's limits? Any we should stay clear of?
