    The article misses key safety points regarding batteries and hypes up the same nonsense we hear in the media. What a joke.

    About as much info on the realistic issues as buzzfeed....god help you when @5150sick or @pulsevape sees this...

    Li-ion cell safety doesnt apply to only ecigs/vapers, its just as prevelant in any other electronic device using those same batteries. The only reason ecigs and dangers are news worthy are due to the controversy around vaping...you can find just as much if not more exploding samsung phones, hoverboards and laptop reports out there...you just need to search for them as they arent thrown into the skylights by the media.

    Most vape explosions aren't even vape explosions.
    They are batterys in the pocket with keys and/or change explosions.

    This power can be harnessed and used for good...
    ...For instance, like on Halloween... when it's taking too long to remove those
    shiny aluminum wrappers from your candy...
    Just toss an 18650 in the bowl and stir until you see the bright light... :)

    Man, I really need a youtube channel...

    Nothing on this planet is idiot-proof. When you combine the number of idiots at large in the world, with high-amp batteries.... things are bound to get interesting. ;)

    Sure glad I vape. Right now I'm designing and building a lithium battery system for use in a customer's portable equipment. Having knowledge of lithium battery safety in regards to discharging and recharging will go a long way in making sure I design a safe piece of equipment. Some folks out there still think the world is flat!

    Tailored to the audience, someone that would be reading that does not know ohms law or much of anything battery safety or mod related past that thing is an electronic cigarette.
    It covers the bare bones basics and they can dive into the rabit hole on the web if they want more.

    Was it missing a ton of info, yeah, but that could take up enough pages to be a book. Not complete for sure and useless to most of us but we are a small majority of the public that might google "exploding electronic cigarette".

    My 2 cents

    that our idiots would become stronger and more capable to overcome the challenge.

    Agreed, it's not the device it's how you use it or care for it.

    It's actually BOTH the device AND how you use it as well as care for it. That is, unless you care to prove to me that there exist no shady devices.

    Did anyone look at what vapes they are pushing on that site?
    Cigalikes esp V2, which they seem to rate #1.

    Yep they would not like 18XXX batteries.
    Perhaps a site owned by BT?

    Just possibilities, no accusations.

    Whole point of that post was getting views and subscriptions, as well as promoting their own products or products affiliated with, and as we can see it worked as intended, good job moving on.

    Sorry, but we do not delete post here in the Underground.

    But no worries, we all know that the article was an interesting mix of BS and advanced ignorance.

    Sadly, we are quite used to seeing a lot more crap just like it.

    Just the right mix of makeup and the RF from a Cell phone in close proximity can trigger the explosion.
    And all this time the Cell phones have been getting blamed for it :rolleyes:
    It just gets burned and charred from the makeup explosion.
    It is a covergirlup conspiracy by those women in the pink cars!
