Below we take an in-depth look into Hi-Tech Caffeine Power, to see whether this caffeine pill offers the promised energy boost for a good price.
Hi-Tech Caffeine Power is a caffeine pill that can be variably used as an athletic performance enhancer, fat burner, and cognitive enhancer. Containing just a single 200mg dose of caffeine, this product packs roughly the same punch per pill as a 12oz cup of coffee, making it an effective and not overly strong caffeine supplement.
Hi-Tech Caffeine Power is manufactured by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, a supplement manufacturer based in the USA. Hi-Tech Pharma (as they are often called) are known mainly for their extraordinary history of litigation, having fought long and protracted legal battles with the FTC, FDA, respected university professors, medical authorities, and rival companies. The company is currently fighting to overturn the FDA’s existing ban on the dangerous stimulant DMAA, and continues to sell DMAA-based products until the legal point is clarified. The company is also associated with its selling of a useless form of ephedra and other products, that attempt to mimic and impersonate illegal steroids.
Caffeine can sometimes cause jitters, sleeplessness, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, headaches, increased blood pressure, increased urination, and dehydration. This product is not suitable for those sensitive to caffeine. Customers should avoid other sources of caffeine whilst taking this product, and should attempt to remain hydrated throughout the day.
From almost all outlets where Caffeine Power is available, a 100-capsule bottle costs $5.95. A minority of online stores (including Fit King and Peak Performance Supps attempt to charge up to $9.50 for the same bottle. It can be purchased from the following websites at various prices, the Hi-Tech Pharma webstore, www.illpumpyouup.com, DPS Nutrition, iHerb, Elite Nutrition, Mind and Muscle, Pharma Fit Science, and Advanced Supps.
Caffeine supplements like this are pretty straightforward. Like others, Caffeine Power contains a good dose of caffeine per tablet (about the same as a cup of coffee) with nothing else to muddy the mix. Customers can reap the benefits of caffeine in numerous ways, as caffeine has been shown to act as a thermogenic fat burner, slight athletic performance booster and cognitive enhancer.
To tell whether this product is better than any other, we need to look at the little differences. Where it counts, Caffeine Power performs excellently; it appears to work well and is available for a very competitive price of $6. It is also widely available to buy on the Internet, and the quantity of caffeine is clearly marked on the packaging (which should help customers to avoid unwanted side effects).
The drawbacks mainly come from the business or administrative side of things. The manufacturer, Hi-Tech Pharma, have no money back guarantee or returns policy, which is always a negative mark in our book. Some customers have also complained of an unpleasant flavour in the chalky, white tablet version of Caffeine Power. Hi-Tech Pharma have since launched a new version of the product, although it remains clear that some suppliers are still selling old stock. Unfortunately, customers may still run into this poorly-reviewed version.
Overall, this product is an extremely well-priced and clearly-labelled caffeine pill. Although the manufacturer’s lack of money back guarantee means we cannot recommend it, those looking for a caffeine pill on the basis of price may not find much better.

Hi-Tech Caffeine Power is a single-ingredient supplement, that claims to give customers a boost of energy and alertness. As the name might suggest, it contains a simple 200mg dose of caffeine per tablet, which is said by some retailers to help with performance in the gym as well as with weight loss programs. This product does not contain a dangerously significant dose of caffeine, with each tablet containing roughly the same amount as a single 12oz cup of coffee.
Caffeine Power is produced and sold by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, an American manufacturer of various sports, weight loss, and sexual enhancement supplements. Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals’ website is surprisingly poorly written and hard to understand for an English-speaking company, giving an unprofessional appearance that fails to inspire confidence in the quality of the products. As of 2017, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals is far more well-known for its legal battles with American authorities and university professors, than for its effective and high-quality supplements. The company can be contacted via the contact details provided on the website.
The directions for use are as follows:
Adults & Children 12 years or older: Take 1 tablet not more often than every 3-4 hours.
Strangely enough, there is no product description included on the official Hi-Tech Pharma product page (although this may be due to the rather self-explanatory nature of caffeine).
However, we were able to find some product descriptions on other seller sites. The Caffeine Power page on www.illpumpyouup.com claims that caffeine has “substantial effects on athletic performance levels and physiological response. Caffeine is said to stimulate the central nervous system, act as a thermogenic fat burner, increase the rate of adrenalin release, and spares muscle glycogen to improve endurance in the gym. The sellers at I’ll Pump You Up recommend taking Caffeine Power daily to see “positive training benefits”.
The caffeine present in this supplement will likely increase energy levels, mildly increase the metabolism for a few hours after consumption, and increase urine output, as caffeine is a diuretic as well as a stimulant. Some studies suggest that caffeine has a small effect upon appetite suppression, but this not as noticeable as its other benefits.
Theoretically, Caffeine Power could aid a small amount of weight loss when used over a long term period. The amount of calories it will burn is fairly small, and so anyone who is still overeating or not dieting will see no benefits. The energy boost caffeine provides may be useful for anyone who wants a boost of energy, or who has a long working day where they need to remain alert. It could also help gym-goers who are looking for a very slight energy boost, but who do not want to take a high-strength pre-workout supplement.
Overall, Caffeine Power is not a strong weight loss and exercise aid, but it could help to support other weight loss efforts such as dieting and exercise.
The sole ingredient that makes up Hi-Tech Caffeine Power is listed below. The quantity listed is correct for 1 tablet of Caffeine Power.
High doses of caffeine can cause headaches, jitteriness, insomnia, an increased heartrate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, and increased blood pressure. Customers sensitive to caffeine should avoid this product altogether, or at least avoid other sources of caffeine whilst consuming it. All customers should try to stay hydrated whilst using this product, and should avoid taking it in the evening (to avoid the chance of side effects).
Medical advice typically recommends avoiding taking more than 500mg of caffeine per days. Two capsules of Caffeine Power contain 400mg of caffeine, meaning that customers should avoid consuming tea, coffee, energy drinks, and other forms of caffeine whilst taking it.
For occasional use only. Children under 12 years should not use as a substitute for sleep. The recommended dose of this product contains about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. Limit the use of caffeine – containing medications, foods or beverages while taking this product because to much caffeine my cause nervousness, irritability, sleeplessness, and occasionally rapid heartbeat. Stop use and ask a doctor if fatigue or drowsiness persists or continues to recur. If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a health professional before use. Keep out of reach of children. In case of overdose, get medical help or contact a poison control center right away.
As expected, Hi-Tech Caffeine Power works as advertised, and customers are clearly satisfied with the energy boost and relatively low price point. One negative that is mentioned more than once is that the pills are poorly coated – readers should remember that newer stocks of Caffeine Power do not suffer with this problem (although customers may inadvertently buy the older problematic stock from certain retailers).
Gives you the boost without the jitters.
Folks, seriously – it is caffeine in a tablet form. It’s not rocket science. It does exactly what it’s supposed/expected to do. For someone like me who really doesn’t like to drink coffee in the mornings before a workout/run, this is perfect. And the price is great too.
I do not like coffee and try to stay away from energy drinks because of all of the added chemicals/artificial sweeteners, so these really help when I need some energy throughout the night at work. I have had a couple issues with swallowing these so I did not give it 5 stars. It may need a bit more of a coating.
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Caffeine Tablets are simple caffeine tabs. The tabs are chalky and taste poorly, so if you are sensitive to bad tasting pills you might want to go with a coated or flavored pill. The bottle comes filled with cotton which has done a good job of protecting the pills during delivery. These pills are exactly as advertised and are a great deal for the price.
On the official Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals website, no mention is made of a money back guarantee or a returns policy of any kind.
Hi-Tech Caffeine Power can be purchased from a number of independent online retailers (although Hi-Tech Pharma products have long been discontinued on more mainstream outlets like Amazon and Walmart, mainly due to the manufacturer’s unfortunate reputation for churning out unsafe products).
The price for a 100-capsule bottle is $5.95 from nearly all outlets, including the official Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals webstore, www.illpumpyouup.com, DPS Nutrition, iHerb, Elite Nutrition, Mind and Muscle, Pharma Fit Science, Advanced Supps, and more. On some outlets, the same bottle is mysteriously more expensive; a 100-capsule bottle costs $9.50 from Fit King and $7.99 from Peak Performance Supps.
