E-cigarette exploding battery due to misuse
There are stories about e-cigarettes that just explode. It seems like you better place a bar of dynamite between your lips! Yet the stories seem greatly exaggerated, and the cause, as is often the case, is ... people. Incorrect use of e-cigarettes can cause a copy to explode sporadically. You can read how you can prevent this on this page.
Everything in the house does "boom"
Your smartphone, electric toothbrush, the television remote control and your son's talking car; it contains batteries. These small nuclear power plants bring together positive and negative ions (or something similar), which releases energy. It looks like a series of small nuclear reactors in the house! Yet most devices will not just explode. Why is this the case with e-cigarettes?
Does an e-cigarette really explode?
In practice, the stories about popping electric cigarettes often turn out to be incorrect or severely exaggerated. When problems arise they usually fall into one of these four categories:
The device was overloaded during charging and exploded.
- The batteries or the entire device lay in a hot place such as a glove compartment of a car in the summer.
- There was a short circuit in the e-cigarette.
- The equipment has been used in a manner that is not permitted according to the instructions.
These are largely reasons that apply just as well to other electrical appliances, why does it go wrong? First the "do-it-yourself" users who assemble mods themselves without delving into the technology or working inaccurately. Furthermore, it is often just a matter of careless use. Heating is an important aspect of an e-cigarette, and batteries do not like extreme heat. If you notice that a device becomes very hot, or you see discoloration, stop immediately and check all parts. If you have any doubts about anything, you should contact the supplier immediately.
The e-cigarette is conceived as a healthier alternative to smoking. Do not put yourself in danger by irresponsibly using electricity.
