E-cigarette explosions occur when the lithium-ion battery inside a vaporizer overheats, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA is in charge of regulating all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes. You may have heard that e-cigarettes, or vaporizers, can catch fire or explode and seriously harm people. Although these incidents seem rare, fires and vaporizer explosions are dangerous to the person using the vaping product and others around them.
There may be additional hazards, for example, if a vaporizer's battery catches fire or explodes near flammable gases or liquids, such as oxygen, propane, or gasoline. The cause of the vape pen explosions is not the vaporizer itself, but the lithium-ion battery used by the vaporizer. An examination of defective e-cigarettes found that the overheating and burning of these products were caused by the lithium-ion battery. If there are any problems with the battery, even a minor product defect, it can combine the highly flammable solvents inside the battery and generate heat, which, in turn, can create pressure that causes a fire or explosion.
These explosions can also occur with non-defective batteries if damaged. A lithium-ion vape battery explodes when it gets too hot. The highly flammable liquid inside the battery reacts with oxygen and causes it to burn. FEMA data suggests that up to 80% of vape explosions occur when the device is charging.
If you charge your vaporizer at night and fall asleep, you run the risk of allowing it to charge for several hours longer than necessary. This increases the chances of an overheated battery catching fire. When using a vaporizer, you understand that inhaling is not recommended, as it can be harmful, and using a vaporizer is done at your own risk. Care must be taken before using a vaporizer, as vaporization will not necessarily remove each and every toxin found in vaporized mixtures.
