February 24, 2016: Owensboro, KY: E-Cigarette (E-Cig) devices frequently utilize lithium-ion batteries with basic safety mechanisms. Due to this reports of failures have been occurring at increasing rates. Watch this video of a man’s pants exploding and catching on fire when his e-cig battery explodes:
E-cig batteries can explode due to overheating from overuse, due to overcharging, due to damage to the battery or e-cig, vaporizer, or mod box, or due to the design of the device drawing too much power from the battery. A lack of basic safety mechanisms in many designs makes these failures possible, resulting in the dangerous battery failures and battery explosions.
