E-Cigarettes do carry a few risks, same as any electronic device, really. However, there are a number of dangers that everyone has heard of, but aren’t very likely to happen, if at all. The biggest example of this is the exploding E-Cig.
This doesn’t really happen. E-Cigarettes have combusted and started fires from overcharging, or charging with the wrong cable. In general, every mishap with an ‘exploding E-Cigarette’ was completely preventable. There are a number of mistakes that people make that can end poorly for everyone involved. In fact, these mistakes have caused numerous people injuries, permanent damage, and quite a bit of property damage. Unfortunately, many of the accidents were caused mainly by those hurt. It’s truly sad to say, but had many of them known the ins and outs of how E-Cigs work and what not to do, they may have avoided the damage caused by the E-Cigs they had.
To begin with, one of the first things that you’re going to need to know is that the charge cable that comes with the E-Cig is the only cable that you should ever charge your E-Cig or vaporizer with. The chances of an E-Cig, E-Hookah Pens, or vaporizer ‘exploding’ are next to zero, if not zero. However, a battery, whether it’s in an E-Cig or any other device, can combust suddenly if fed a charge that is too much for it. If the power going into the battery is too much then the battery will simply overload. It’s not a problem of E-Cigs – it’s a problem of batteries.
The second problem comes from charging in the improper place. By and large, E-Cigs come with a USB cable to charge it. The cable is meant to be used with whatever adapter it comes with. However, many people assume that a USB cable is usable in a computer or phone AC adapter – that’s not the case. Many E-Cigs and vaporizers use a battery that isn’t very powerful. The devices are pretty small, after all. Because of it, the amperage and voltage going through the charger for an E-Cig will be smaller than that of a cell phone or computer port that carries a rather sizable power capability.
The second cause behind ‘exploding’ E-Cigs is people playing around and tinkering with them. A modded E-Cig or vaporizer no longer has the capacity to really be safe. Modding, by it’s very nature, is not safe. If you ever mod an E-Cig, you’re taking matters into your own hands. That is your own prerogative.
No matter how it happens, ‘exploding’ E-Cigs are a myth. E-Cigs don’t explode or spontaneously combust. There is always a reason behind it, and 99% of the time it will be user error or misstep, not a fault in the device. Keep your wits about you, and you should never have any problems.read more
