Here are some safety tips for e-cigarette vapers. Approximately 80% of reported explosions occur during or shortly after charging. The first tip is don’t buy a cheap charger. Pay extra for a charger that stops charging when the battery is fully re-charged. Also, don’t use a battery with a broken wrap. This will avoid metal-to-metal contact, which can cause sparking. Batteries should be stored in a case to avoid contact with metal objects like car keys. Finally, don’t use any USB port other than the one your vape came with when you bought it. Using USB ports on laptops and other devices is not recommended.
In the end, the safest approach is to avoid using e-cigarettes. In recent years, there have been many incidents of explosions and fires involving products powered by Lithium Ion Polymer (LiPo) batteries, including hoverboards, the Samsung 7 cell phone and e-cigarettes. Even the most cautious vaper may not be able to detect defects to his or her e-cig battery or charging device.
