It is a well-known fact that newspapers love to sensationalise a story, so why you see reports of vape pens and e-cigs exploding, you should dig a little deeper to see what is going on. If you have suffered from a vape pen that caught fire or exploded then you will be looking for answers, and of course, this is not a good thing to happen, but we are going to look a little closer for you.
Cheap Might Mean Cheerful
With not much substance behind it, which can lead to problems. Money is always a driving factor when making purchasing decisions, so we understand that when people see a cheap bargain vape, they might seriously consider buying it, or indeed go through with the transaction. The problem with this is that you are likely getting something that is lower in quality and therefore more prone to problems. Alarm bells should start ringing if you see a vape pen for sale in a pound shop for example. These are likely to be poorly made imported gimmicks that are not worth a thing, and more concerning they could actually be very dangerous. Saving money here could be a false economy and risking your own health as some of the reports of exploding e-cigarettes have resulted in some very nasty burns. That is why everything we stock meets all the safety standards and legislation required so you can stay safe.
People tend to focus on vape pens because they are already a contentious issue; however, they are just the same as all things. You may have seen reports of beds catching fire when (predominately) teenagers have left their mobile on the bed plugged into the mains charger. Unfortunately when charging these things can get hot, and a soft bed offers nothing in the way of airflow around the device to keep it cool and becomes a fire hazard. Vape pens are the same; manufacturers give guidance on how to look after the equipment, how to charge the device and generally how to make sure you stay safe for a reason. You should ensure that you read the literature that comes with your e-cig and find out how to charge it safely. If no instructions are included, remember that you need to respect any electronic device when it is charging and not leave it on a potentially flammable surface.
Accidents can happen, and even with the best-made items, things can go wrong. However, if you have bought a high-quality vape pen and followed all the instructions that are included you are less likely to experience problems. Genuine manufacturers are going to great lengths to make sure that the goods they supply are of the highest possible quality. Since the laws changed on vapes last year, there has been a significant drop in recorded incidents of exploding gear. If you have any concerns about your e-cigarette stop using it and seek professional advice.
