In addition to nicotine health risks, the risk from inhalation of the main chemicals used to create vapor, and the chemicals used for flavorings, vapers also face a risk from vape mod devices that explode. The batteries, typically 18650 vape batteries, catch fire and explode inside or outside of the device.
Vape battery explosions can cause serious injury or death. Two men have died from shrapnel exploding from the vape mod device, and Levin Simes Abrams represents many who have suffered terrible injuries to large portions of their body from vape fire. Third degree buirns requiring skin grafts, permanent nerve damage, scarring, broken teeth, and more can occur when a vape battery explodes. The manufacturers of these products fail to provide the level of safety normally seen in battery powered products, and customers are becoming victims.
