E-cigarettes rose to popularity owing to their stunning benefits compared to the traditional cigarettes. For one, they do not generate smoke at all. E-cigarettes work through the method of vaping.

Recently, there have been cases “e-cig explosions.” The primary cause of these explosions the devices’ batteries. If the vaping devices are either charged too frequently or left unattended, that may lead to an explosion.

Don’t Pocket Naked Batteries
We all hate interruptions. One interruption that an e-cigar user can experience is having their MOD is running low as they have to stop smoking while it recharges. For that reason, many users carry an extra pair of batteries.
However, one big mistake that they make is carrying the extra batteries in their naked form, which is risky. Naked batteries have their base terminals exposed to the conductors in contact with them, including keys and coins.This may spike a fire right in the pocket! To avoid this worst-case scenario, it’s important to enclosed your battery in a protective closing.
Don’t Overwork Your Batteries
Overusing your device can make the batteries hot and cause a malfunction. They may even “swell” or explode due to overheating. For those who didn’t know, venting is a reaction in which the chemicals in the batteries started emitting gasses, which can eventually lead to an explosion.
Always Use the Right Chargers
Not all MOD battery chargers are compatible with your vaping device. Therefore, you need to charge your batteries using their designated chargers. Faulty chargers can undercharge or overcharge your MOD batteries, which can lead to a malfunction. Also, always check the input and output power and compare.
