The explosion was e-cigarettes “simulation”?

The electronic cigarette or cigar, e-mails that exploded in the mouth of man in Florida is likely that he built himself, or modified using parts he bought on the Internet, according to reports.

Last week, the battery exploded electronic cigarettes while using Tom Holloway, 57, of Niceville, Fla. He was treated for broken teeth, burns, and a piece put out his tongue, according to various sources. Holloway has since been released from the hospital and is recovering from his injuries, reports said.

Given the lack of specific information about the nature of the device, CSP Daily News did not report the incident as news (see Related Content below to see an editorial about the incident light). But the young industry is currently offering several theories about what could happen.

CSP Daily News readers “Photon” was the first to comment on the wording: “SPS right on target, denying the story and related sensations, until all the facts of an inch on the evidence, I was able to open, it does not appear this incident is related to ready-made electronic cigarettes product, and what is called a “vamping” circles as “fashion”. It’s basically homemade devices that are manufactured from parts available on the Internet. They collected from consumers and usually vary in the manufacture of “heavy” nicotine spike is usually achieved by use of lithium batteries is greater than those in the off-finished products. “Stacking” batteries is also a common practice and is not recommended, even for parts of “fashion” manufacturers. ”

He added: “We should not condemn the entire growing industry, even if it is established, the consumer has not played any role in the incident. Then and only then, when the facts were fully disclosed shall be made solutions.”

Thomas Kiklas, co-founder of tobacco vapor electronic cigarette association, told the Associated Press, that the industry does not know the problem with cigarettes and batteries exploded.

Kiklas said cigarette includes a small battery and cartridge. The battery is designed to produce an electric charge when the device is inhaled. The charge sets off the vapor in the cigarette tube.

He referred to a federal report that found 2500000 Americans used e-cigarettes in the past year. “There are billions and billions of clubs on cigarettes, and we have not heard of this happening before,” he said.

“What happened is a tragedy, and we hope that this is a wake up call the industry to bring a higher standard,” Dan Recio, co-founder of e-cigarette manufacturer Cigs V2, the statement said. “We have taken measures against the possibility of electronic problems from the start, with safeguards are integrated into our batteries as automatic shut-off and smart chargers that prevent overcharging. We correct age of the batteries and check before sending mashed to ensure the highest standards.”

Chief Butch Parker North Bay Fire District responded to the call. “I’ve never heard or seen anything like it,” Parker told ABC News. Although the battery was unrecognizable after the incident, Parker reported finding several 3.0 volt CR123A batteries charge in the room with scorched the battery case, which proved to be a cigar-sized device.

Although the investigation is still pending, battery type and “cigar” appearance of the device indicate Holloway may have used custom-made “fashion” or change the use of e-cigarette batteries stacked like a flashlight, said Recio. These devices, in contrast to the more popular electronic cigarettes, which have built-in digital control and protection, he said.

Changes in the electronic cigarette devices have a history of fires and explosions, beginning a few years due to cheap, unprotected lithium ion batteries and the ability to recharge the device, he added. This can cause electrical fire inside the unit, which produces the accumulation of hydrogen in the explosion.

“Consumers should be careful to choose quality products and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. We have strict quality control standards to ensure consumer safety,” said Recio.

“People are aware of the risk that they take when they start messing with the electrical components of everything they buy, whether it is phone, e-cigarette, or a microwave oven,” said the operators E Cigarette Junction.com, am e-cigarette review website, in a separate statement. “E-cigarettes have been developed by professionals for use by consumers, not to be dangerous to change the fashion lovers in the match mixture and roll.”

Many electronic devices on the market today vary by end-users who want the product to provide more battery life, faster speed or other features better performance, it was not designed to endure, he said. E-cigarette companies that are certified by SGS for its products all met and exceeded the required stress tests on their batteries, so they are safe for its intended use.
