Review of the Hohm Wrecker Box Mod
I received the Hohm Wrecker box mod from Benjamin over at Hohm Tech so I could check it out and review it. First things first, this box mod is definitely unique. It may not sport the most power out of any box on the market, but that’s not what Hohm Tech is going for. I’ll discuss this more in the video and article below.
The Hohm Wrecker box mod is a temperature control device that runs from 10 to 151 watts. This temp control mod can regulate temperature from 200 to 700°F (92-372°C). For dimensions, it weighs in at 8.47oz and has a height, length, and width of 2.28×4.13×0.94in. It utilizes a brand new chip manufactured in China called the Flagship Killer (FSK) chip. Other than that chip, the Hohm Wrecker is 100% designed, engineered, and assembled in America.
The first thing that I noticed when I received the Hohm Wrecker prototype from Hohm Tech was that the box sports a unique aesthetic. Instead of being “Plain Jane” as far as the outside of the box, Hohm Tech opted to place gender symbols all over the sides, top, and bottom.
Though the gender symbols were not the way I would go if I designed the Hohm Wrecker, I did not find them terrible. They even add a bit of grip to the outside of the box. In my opinion, it might have a more pleasing aesthetic if Hohm Tech had placed ohm symbols around the outside of the device.
The version of the Hohm Wrecker that I received is a prototype, and because of this, it had flaws. According to Benjamin over at Hohm Tech, these flaws have since been addressed for the retail version, However, for the purpose of full disclosure, I mentioned them in the video above.
My initial impressions of this temperature control box mod were good despite the obvious flaws from being a prototype. It reminded me of the original Sigelei 100W box mod in its size and general design, which is a good thing.
Up close and personal, the Hohm Wrecker temperature control box mod looks to be fairly clean. There is nothing that stands out negatively on the inside of the box mod. My only real complaint for the internals is that the ribbon should have been placed in the middle of the battery sled for easier access. Otherwise, the magnets are strong, the wires and chip are all covered up, and the contacts are sturdy.
What Hohm Tech has tried to do with the Hohm Wrecker is make a device that does not adhere to the standards set by other devices. One of the main things that Benjamin at Hohm Tech wanted to express to me was that they are not looking for a wattage war; they want efficiency. Hohm Tech wanted to create a box mod that will work the right way every time no matter what.
Overall, it seems that Hohm Tech has done a great job in creating this box mod. They have successfully produced a device that works the way it is supposed to. They have emphasized efficiency, and even a beginner vaper can understand how to use it.
