Test/review of Hohm 18650 Work2 2547mAh (Black-white)

Hohm 18650 Work2 2547mAh (Black-white)

Official specifications:

  • Capacity: 2547mAh

  • Max Charge Rate: 3.82A

  • Max Charge Voltage: 4.2V

  • Continuous Discharge Rate: 25.3A

  • Max 80oC | 3.2V cut-off: 35.8A

  • Pulse | Peak6: 42.4A

  • Cycle Life Retention: 500 Cycles (69), 1000 (58)

  • Chemistry Type: QSP Li-NMC

The specifications for the battery sound fine and the two cells match very nicely in the discharge curve, but a internal fuse blows at 15A discharge current

The battery is not hot on the outside when the fuse blows.


The batteries looks fine at low current (That is 10A), but something is wrong with the current rating or the batteries. The overload fuse burns out way below rating.
