IT'S BETTER TO VAPE AND ROCK, THAN TO BE DEAD BEFORE YOUR TIME
Thats sad on so many counts ;-(
Obviously a defective unit, just like getting a defective battery in your cell phone, it can happen. Only b/c it was an ecig it'll probably be all over the news.

Ummmm.... Have a few issues with this story...... Don't know how much I can say here or where to start. What copper coil, do they mean copper wiring? Am sorry a kid got injured, but not completely buying this story for a few reasons.
"I know that I am hard to love, I know that I ask for far too much, but we get what we ask for sometimes, and sometimes we miss the mark. We miss the mark..."- ilyAIMY "the MARC"
will have to check it out when I get home, the link doesn't work on this old phone..
I too am sorry a child was injured. We will never know the specifics of the story as if the proper charger was even being used, may have been a defective device. Was it overcharged ect.....very sad no matter the reason. For the injured child and for all of us.
Wow!! That sucks. Because of a faulty product (or improper use) she'll never vape again. Not that I blame her of course. And now that the story is out there other people will stay away from them.
Seems a lot of these stories lately have dealt with the Ego style batteries and while charging. Thank you Morandir sir for all of your warnings against unsafe chargers!
Just read it, seems to me like ish happens every now and then. E-cigs are fairly new. Released to the public in '07 I believe..? Imagine how many cigs have burnt down houses, and killed people. Poor kid, that he had to go through that but hey, look at the bright side.. at least he won't smoke after an incident like that.
Iphones have exploded as well.
Here's an excerpt from above link:
Here are some warnings to keep your batteries from exploding and extending its usage:
- Frequent recharge is fine but should not recharge for long periods of hours.
- Keep in a cool place during charging and usage. It extends the battery life and prevents to overheat.
- Avoid exposing your device to water, sand, dust, and humidity to avoid short-circuit.
- If the device gets water exposure, open the back casing and remove the battery. Let the device dry up.
- Never leave your device inside the car alone to avoid overheating.
- Plastic casing can overheat a handheld device.
- Use only recommended accessories to your device which are authorized by the manufacturer.
The vendor mentioned seem to deal with personal vaporizers. Aren't they supposed to get way hotter than an e-cig?
During my research into e-cigs, I was tempted by mods with removable batts - 186050's or what not, but decided on the Zeus because the product, the company, and its costumer service got great reviews. The Zeus seemed to be a well built product. It didn't hurt that the Zeus looked so cool.
I also figured it was better to go with a company that stand behind their product, only releasing stuff after extensive testing - and employees actually use said products themselves!, and would support their costumers.
I am so happy to say that I truly believe I've made the right choice.
Man, sorry if I sound like an ad, but I just had to let that out.
Naw ico, well said. It's why I only buy my hardware from V4L. I don't even have the urge to venture out into other e-cig lands for batts. As long as I have a dav, zeus, omg vv, omg ad, and my cigalike I feel that I need nothing else. Well instead of an extreme excess of flavors and different ways to vape them. But that's another story.
