What Is a Vaporizer, and How Can They Explode?

E-cigarettes and vaporizers are small, battery-powered nicotine delivery systems that produce a heated vapor from a flavored solution that mimics the sensation of traditional tobacco smoking. The energy used to produce this heat is obtained from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is housed within the devices. If these batteries should overheat, they can combust during use.

Overheating can be caused by any of the following:

  • Overcharging of the battery
  • Punctured batteries
  • External heat-sources
  • Internal short-circuiting
  • Internal cell fault
  • Mismatched batteries and chargers

How to Treat a Burn from a Vape Pen

If you or someone you love has been burned by an E-Cigarette or a Vape Pen, it is important to address your wounds immediately and carefully in the following ways:

  • Minor Burns- For burns that are smaller than one inch in diameter, use a cold compress and daily cleanse the affected area with mild soap and water.
  • Severe Burns- For burns that are blackened, near the face or genitals, or is more than three inches in diameter, do not hesitate to seek medical help from a professional.

Despite their popularity, electronic smoking devices are currently not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. This means that unsafe products may be being released to the public without their knowledge. If you have been seriously burned by your vaporizer or e-cigarette, you may be able to file a legal claim against the device’s manufacturer in pursuit of compensation for your resulting medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, reduced quality of life, and emotional distress. Our firm’s attorneys can review the exact cause of your injuries and determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
