Yes, they can! I am sure everyone has heard horror stories in the news about exploding vape pens. The unfortunate part is that when you read a headline it will only say, "Vape Exploded", there is never enough details on why the battery inside the vape failed. The best vape shops will even advise their customers about battery safety and when it is the right time to swap out those 18650's out of your favourite vape mod. Though the science is not exactly clear on what causes vape batteries to explode, we made a list of 5 tips for battery safety!
Disclaimer or Rant...
You should always invest in a vape device that has safety features. Now, this may seem a bit obvious, but there are a lot of vape shops out there that are just trying to make a buck. Just like all things in life, the market has a ton of cloned products out there and cheap replicas. Your vape starter kit or mod should have:
18650, 21700, etc... vape batteries are not safe in your pocket, especially if you are carrying other metal objects in your pocket like car keys or loose change. If you have even a slight tear in your battery wrap, contact with another piece of metal can lead to the battery failing.
Ever wonder why your vape shops always offer you an external battery charger for your vape set up? Believe me, it's not a cash grab. Many vapers have the habit of plugging in their vape kit into whatever charger is around them when their battery is dead. Your vape device is not made to be used with all chargers. The lithium-ion batteries vape stores sell to power your vape has specific requirements and can easily be getting too much juice from let's say a 12V car Battery! Use the supplied charger or an external vape battery charger which is the best way to go.
According to multiple studies, majority of battery failures happen while batteries are charging. This could be due to damaged batteries, overloaded batteries along with a list of other issues coming from the vape battery itself. It is never safe to leave your vape unattended while it's charging. Using an external battery charger with safety features is the only way you should charge your vape batteries unattended.
A damaged battery is a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. It is never safe to use a battery if it is damaged or has been tampered with. An exposed battery or a battery with a tear can easily short in your vape itself or the charger. The best vape shops will provide you battery wraps for free.
