In recent years, the use of electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes has grown
in popularity. E-cigarettes are battery-powered, using a heating element
to vaporize liquid through a cartridge.
One concern regarding e-cigarette use is a growing number of reported explosions.
Of the reported cases of e-cigarette explosions, nearly one-third occurred
while in the user’s possession or during use. Additionally, 40%
of the explosions resulted in burns.
In 2017, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reported 195 injuries
related to e-cigarette explosions or fires between 2009 and 2016. This
number has increased significantly as of late, rising from 15 in 2014
to 98 in 2016. While reported incidents resulted in 38 cases of severe
injuries, the likelihood of unreported events means the real number could
be much higher.
Recent cases of injury caused by exploding or igniting e-cigarette include:
- A 24-year-old man who died when his vape pen exploded, severing his carotid artery.
- A 38-year-old who died when an exploding e-cigarette sent shrapnel through
- A man who was left with a hole in his tongue when an e-cigarette he used exploded.
