Why Do Vapes Explode?

Everyone has heard of the nightmare stories of vaporizers exploding. Missing teeth, bust lips, even broken jaws. So, are these stories just urban legends from anti-vape lobbyists? Or are there truth to these claims?

Well, the fact of the matter is, vapes have exploded on their users in the past, and it can happen for a variety of reasons. We’ll go through each one of them, but here’s a brief overview.

  1. The quality of the vaporizer you purchased.
  2. How you charge your vape.
  3. The battery cover on your vape (lost or damaged?)
  4. Exposure to extreme heat or cold
  5. What’s going on with the battery of your vape
  6. Hybrid tech mods and/or improper atomizers

The Quality of Your Vape

Buying a premium quality vaporizer is the best way to avoid an explosion. Counterfeit vapes or vaporizers made from very cheaply put together materials are a one way ticket to Kabaam City. Do some research on the vape your buying before you buy it, and make sure its the real deal.

Also make sure to buy premium quality e-liquids for your vape. This is like buying the highest quality gas for your car. It will clean the engine and keep it running smoothly – visit website to get some free samples of high quality e-liquids.. thank me later!

How You Charge Your Vape

The batteries in your vape are very powerful. In fact, these lithium-ion batteries are much stronger energizers than the batteries you’ll find in your cell phone or TV remote. With that said, overcharging these batteries can potentially be dangerous.

Make sure you use the exact same charger provided when you purchased your vape, as this charger would put the manufactured recommended voltage to your battery, and reduce the possibility of an overcharge.

The Battery Cover on Your Vape

If the battery cover of your vape is lost or damaged, this can lead to damage to your battery, which can lead to a vapesplosion. If your battery cover is lost or damaged, call the manufacturer and get a replacement shipped ASAP.

Exposure to Extreme Heat or Cold

Take my word on it, you don’t want to leave your vape in your car in the summertime, or out in the ice-cold weather in the winter. Extreme temperatures lead to battery damage, which can possibly lead to a malfunction of your device leading to a KABLAOW.

What’s Going On With Your Vape Batteries

If the batteries in your vape are loose, incorrect or counterfeit, all these factors can lead to a short circuit which can lead to a boom. Make sure that your batteries fit correctly, and are the manufacturer recommended batteries.

Tech Mods

The biggest reason we’ve heard over here at Green Flag Alliance as to why  a vape explodes is if its been modded. Modding a vape basically means it was modified to run a different way, perhaps to blow more clouds or get more flavors. Tinkering with your vape is not a good idea, especially if your not an engineer.

Buying Your Very First Vape Mod

vape mods

Ah vapers and vape mods. To the novice vaper, you’re probably asking yourself “why” but to the expert and seasoned veteran, they know exactly what they are, what they can do for your device and how important they are. Not only that but it’s something that can get pretty addicting as well once you’re used to it and you know what you’re buying. We’ll go over the key features such as, what a vape mod is, what you’ll need, how to build them, etc.

So what is a vape mod? To “mod” something is technically just short term for modification but when it comes to smoking in general, mod actually comes from some older times. There were these people who were self-proclaimed do it yourselfers that would actually tear apart some cigarettes and then they’d create these freakish inventions using tubes, pipes or anything in their nearby vicinity.

However, as time evolved, this term started applying to people who were using something other than cig-a-likes or other various products. So, technically, you can realistically make anything into a mod but if you should or shouldn’t do it is the question. You’ll also need some equipment before you begin.

You’ll need to know exactly what you need to begin or what you’re looking for when making a purchase. First, think about how you vape right now. Now that you have that deep in your mind, I want you to think about how you really want to vape. Look into the future and think, “how do I want to vape, what kind of cool extensions do I want to put on here?” From there, you’re going to have to think about some sacrifices that need to be made and what must have features that you really need or want.

In the vape industry today, you can easily find out the price of these wants and needs because it’s advanced so much you can easily determine some features down to a single price point. The next thing you need to do is give yourself a defining budget and know how much that you need to spend. How much are you willing to spend, even if it’s everything? A lot of people who vape are willing to pump a lot of money into this hobby of theirs and forget to set a limit for themselves so they so that overspending doesn’t happen.

What kind of popular mod options are out there as well? After you figure out exactly what you need, you can go onto the market, see what’s out there, what’s popular and where to get it. Choosing the right mod at this point is basically just going to come down to different retailers, shipping and the pricing they offer. Again, at your own discretion, this is something you’ll have to choose based on your own personal preference. It could essentially be as simple as just browsing a few online retailers and finding one that you like. So, keep shopping until you find the mod you like.


Modern Days Vaporizers

You might have considered substituting the cigarette stick with something else safer and more appealing, vaporizers. Well, the truth is, vaporizer pens are with every tick of the clock today being embraced by many, due to the fact that it is not only safer to the user as compared to smoking, but safer to bystanders as well. The modern Vaporizer pens come in a variety of designs and colors, have refillable cartridges into which the herb or nicotine is heated up, are classy, are battery operated and well portable. But why are they so popular?

Why Vaping Is Considered Safer Than Smoking

The main reason for this is that whereas smoking involves the inhalation of substances resulting from direct burning (some of which are carcinogenic compounds), vaping is made safer by the fact that the substances you inhale result from indirect burning, as the herbs or nicotine is heated in a controlled manner. Some types have temperature control features and most of the harmful stuff is filtered away by a barrier of sorts. As much as studies are still immensely being undertaken about the health safety of vaporizers to date, no significant amount of carcinogenic radiations has been noted in vaping as compared to cigarette smoking. These elegant devices have received some criticism, but not disapproval by health organs.

Unlike smoking on the stick where direct burning of tobacco in contact with the heating material is involved, most modern vaporizer pens are heat up by convection; meaning that the source of heating and the material is never in direct contact. This makes them safer as compared to smoking traditional cigarettes. The user also gets to enjoy the practice more, especially since vaporizers have different flavors such as fruit, vanilla, juice, chocolate and a lot more from which the user can choose. The device is also more stylish, is portable and presentable.

Additionally, one doesn’t have to shy away from the public when they have a vaporizer pen. The user also doesn’t have to worry about intoxicating the people nearby as is the case with second hand smoking with traditional cigarettes. The other interesting thing that contributes to the popularity of vaporizer pen is that the user is at liberty to choose their desired nicotine or herb concentration unlike with smokes. Some school of thought also believes that these modern smoking instruments are somewhat effective on individuals willing to quite the smoking practice altogether.

Why Buy One?

In summary, Vape pens are safer, available in numerous varieties, highly affordable, stylish, and non-toxic to passersby. There are also kits for beginners, and since these devices are known to induce way lesser degrees of addiction as compared to direct smoking, getting one for yourself for once-in-a-while use might not be such a bad idea.
