E-Cigarette Explosions in California
While the health affects of vaping vs smoking are still being debated, other types of injuries from e-cigarettes are occurring. E-cigarettes, also known as vape pens, are exploding. The lithium-ion batteries used to power vaping devices are the cause. The safety record of lithium-ion batteries has been questionable for a while now. The batteries have been associated with laptop fires, hoverboard fires, and cellphone explosions.

Why Do E-Cigarettes Explode?
E-Cigarettes explode because the battery of the product unexpectedly overheats. At a certain level of heat, a flammable portion of the battery can ignite, causing a chain reaction inside the battery that produces a large amount of heat very quickly, also known as an explosion.
What causes the battery to overheat can vary. It could be a fault or short circuit from the battery’s manufacturing process or there could be external damage, such as a punctured cell. Regardless of why the battery overheats, the e-cigarette manufacturer is responsible for the design of a product that could explode in the face of consumers.
