Why Are E-Cigs Exploding?

There are many reasons consumers are reporting e-cigarette explosions across the United States. Some of the most common factors include:

  • High temperatures
  • Faulty lithium-ion batteries
  • Lack of testing
  • Poor industry standards
  • Misuse by ‘modding’

E-cigarettes, often powered by volatile lithium-ion batteries, can be sensitive to extreme temperature changes. When exposed to temperatures below 50-degrees or above 100-degrees, some lithium-ion batteries can malfunction.

With the high temperatures generated by e-cigs, there’s a higher risk of battery failure.

Who Makes Lithium-Ion Batteries In E-Cigs

Many e-cigarettes are equipped with safe lithium-ion batteries that have passed rigorous testing and have fail-safe mechanisms to prevent dangerous explosions. However, other batteries are poorly made at a low cost.

Some foreign manufacturers fraudulently stamp name-brand logos on their products in an effort to increase sales. Not only is this practice illegal in the United States, but it’s also very dangerous. Unfortunately, many of the faulty batteries used in e-cigs have been traced to false foreign manufacturers.

What To Do?

If you or someone you know has been injured by an exploding e-cig, the manufacturers or sellers could owe you significant compensation.

But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
