    Not as interesting as the other threads and everyone does it... Put my vape device in my pocket and left it on. I'm talking to myself... "what's that sizzle sound?" Damn... another brand new coil toast. Next day, same thing but trying to vape while texting. A few days later... yep, again while working on the car. 5 pack of coils doesn't last long (and the nasty scorched cotton taste :blech: )

    i learned that lessen the hard way back in the cart days i had a 14500 5v box mod that i left on and in pocket during a long movie after said movie the box was hot and the mod melted. im just glad that nothing worse happened. since then i am always sure to turn stuff off and remove batteries to a hard shell case when i go to the movies.

    This is why most mods have a fire lock. Use it?

    My problem with putting my vape in a pocket is it almost inevitably falls over and the tank leaks.

    I don't put mine in my pants/jeans pockets. Both front pockets are otherwise occupied, anyway, and even my single-18650 eVic-VTC Mini plus one of my smaller atomizers would make for an uncomfortable fit. I'm talking about jacket pockets, in my case.

    I suppose if I was wearing a pair of my Dockers that has a thigh pocket it would work. But then it'd be leak city for sure when I sat down, because then that pocket would go horizontal. I guess I need a shoulder holster for my vape [​IMG]

    I don't carry anything out that cant fit in a shirt pocket, unless I know I won't be away from car for long periods.

    I do not carry vapes in my shirt pocket as they fall out when I bend over to pet a kitty. Causing both of us alarm and cursing.

    Unfortunately not all mods have a trigger lock. My mech tube doesn't. I ended up cutting a plastic disk to slide between the battery and the push button to keep it from firing in my pocket. A bit of a hassle to deal with so it stays for home use only.

    I always put mine in my pocket, but I always check that they’re off and double check.

    I always carry my vape in my pouch, so that I never left home without the vape.
