18 Nov 2018
We’ve all been hearing a lot about vaporizers exploding on the news lately, but there are some simple steps you can take to prevent your vaporizer from exploding!
Vaping is rapidly expanding around the world as more and more people quit smoking for good. From their humble start in 2004, e-cigarettes or vaporizers are becoming an accepted part of mainstream society. Along with this acceptance has also arisen a certain amount of fear mongering by mainstream media.
There have been a lot of reports lately about vaporizers exploding in people’s pockets, in their faces, and while they’re charging. If a vaporizer or e-cigarette ever fails in any part of the world, you’ll be watching it on the news later that night. Almost all the explosions or fires were because of operator error or faulty equipment. Most vaporizers aren’t going to explode for no reason at all. In the following article, we’re going to cover most of the reason’s vaporizers explode and how to prevent your vaporizer from exploding!
Follow Your Vaporizers Charging Instructions
To prevent any problems with your vaporizer’s batteries, it’s very important to follow the charging instructions which came with both the batteries and the vaporizer. Lithium-ion batteries in e-cigarettes and vaporizers are much more powerful than regular batteries. They hold large charges and if they are mistreated or overcharged can explode. Here are three important tips to remember when it comes to charging your vaporizer.
- Always use the supplied charger and charging cable which came with your vaporizer. Don’t use damaged cords, inferior chargers, and cables, or plug your vaporizer into computer USB outlets.
- Don’t leave your batteries in a charger (if they’re removable) or leave your vaporizer plugged into a charger once it’s finished charging. Overcharging your battery can not only cause them to catch on fire or explode, but it also damages the battery life.
- Don’t use batteries which are damaged or vape without a battery case on your vaporizer. The batteries could come into contact with other metallic items like your phone, keys, or loose change.
Buy High-Quality Vaporizers and Vaping Accessories
If you are buying a vaporizer, always try to stick with recognized brands or high-quality vaporizers. While that cheap no-name vape or e-cigarette may look tempting, it could come back to haunt you later. Buying vaporizers from reputable companies with warranties and quality assurance in their manufacturing is a great way to ensure you’re getting a great product.
A high-quality vaporizer may cost you a few more dollars in the beginning, but the investment will pay off in the long-run. They’re not only safer, but they will also be a much better vaping experience with better vapor production and more flavor.
Another tip is to stay away from vaporizers like mechanical mods unless you know what you’re doing. Mech mods don’t contain any safety chips or cutouts. The firing button connects directly with the batter and sends the full amperage to the coil. A good understanding of electronics and Ohms law is very important before you build or modify any vaporizer.
