How likely is your e-cigarette to explode?

Postby Nick9 » Fri Dec 20, 2019 3:07 pm

A man in America died when his vape pen exploded, but how dangerous are e-cigarettes?

The case has made headlines around the world, and is believed to be the first death caused by vaping products in the US.

The man, Tallmadge D'Elia, died at his home in Florida when his device blew up and projected fragments into his skull. He was said to have suffered burns over 80% of his body.

But how common are these kinds of incidents?

In the UK, e-cigarettes have caused burns and fires, yet these cases are rare.

Experts say the man who died was using a particular kind of vape pen, known as a mechanical mod, which is not that common in the UK.

Fire services are reporting being called out to a small number of fires caused by exploding e-cigarettes usually as a result of using the wrong charger, over-charging the battery, or incorrectly storing it.

Gary Asquith, station commander at West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service, says: "It's not the e-cigarettes that are unsafe in themselves, but the misuse of the lithium-ion batteries that they use.

He recalls the case of a man whose spare e-cigarette battery exploded in his pocket.

"We posted a CCTV video of a man in Leeds who was carrying a spare battery for his e-cigarette in his pocket. It came into contact with a coin and a key, short-circuited and exploded.

"Most people aren't aware that this might happen. You can get carry cases for your spare batteries which you should put them in if you are going to keep them in your pocket."

Mr Asquith also says he's been called out to a number of house fires caused by incorrect charging of e-cigarettes.

"If you buy an e-cigarette and it doesn't come with a charger, and then you buy a cheap one online, that is when you might see the lithium-ion battery overcharging and catching fire.

Good post, I would say it is a must-read for all the beginners. If you want to avoid all the possible troubles with your vape device and especially battery, just choose a secure and reliable brand, make sure your vape shop is secure, too. As for the batteries, I enjoy ones from Ego, my fav model is ego twist which can be used with multiple attachments.
