Do You Use E-Cigarettes? Be Aware of Malfunctions

Do You Use E-Cigarettes? Be Aware of Malfunctions

Electronic cigarettes have become popular in recent years. The electronic nicotine delivery devices are battery operated and use vapor instead of smoke. Often times these e-cigarates are promoted as safer alternatives to regular cigarettes, but this article shows the opposite of that.

63-year-old Joseph Cavins of Irvine was using an electronic cigarette in his home when the device exploded, ejecting shrapnel in all directions and starting a fire. Some of the shrapnel struck Cavins in the face, breaking bones and catastrophically damaging his left eye, which had to be removed. Cabins is not alone; he is one of many vaping enthusiasts from across the United States to have suffered injuries from exploding e-cigarettes.

Faulty lithium-ion batteries are being blamed for the explosions, the same type of batteries blamed on hoverboard explosions and laptop fires. The batteries, typically made in China, are not subjected to rigorous standards and regulations. As vaping increases in popularity, manufacturers and importers of e-cigarette products will face greater scrutiny.
