 No.619605

On Tuesday, a local medical examiner released their report that concluded a 38-year-old man in St. Petersburg, Florida, died due to an explosion in his vape pen that sent two piece of shrapnel into his cranium. According to the Washington Post, it’s believed to be one of the first deaths of its kind.

At first, officials were uncertain if the cause of death could be attributed to the burns that covered 80 percent of his body. The Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner’s report lists the official reason for his demise as a “projectile wound of head.”

We’ve seen many vape devices explode over the last couple of years as their popularity has grown. The lithium-ion batteries can be highly volatile, especially in poorly manufactured devices that lack proper battery ventilation. According to the Times, the model that killed D’Elia was distributed by Smok-E Mountain. Its now-deleted Facebook page reportedly claimed the device was manufactured in the Philippines. Vapes by Smok-E Mountain can still be found online, and police say the model in question was a “mod” type. Vapers often alter their devices to achieve a more impressive cloud when they exhale, it’s unclear if the victim’s device had any problems caused by the manufacturer.

80% of his body was covered in burns? Shrapnel with enough force to not only break through the skull but also to cause enough damage to be lethal? That's not just a battery exploding. What was he trying to do? Vape some C4?

He was klkled by a cheap mod. Basically just a cylinder with a single button on the bottom. No circuitry or wattage/ohm display. Without an ohms read out or wattage adjustment shit like this is like vaping a fucking grenade.

>80% of his body was covered in burns? Shrapnel with enough force to not only break through the skull but also to cause enough damage to be lethal? That's not just a battery exploding.

The only thing I can think of is that he was using some sort of flammable material either to vape with, or he was vaping while around other flammable material (fueling up a lawnmower? working in sewer filled with methane? trying to start a propane grill?). Another possibility is that the explosion killed him, and then his clothes or nearby material (was he indoors?) burned his body. As far as the shrapnel entering the skull, it wouldn't have to penetrate thick bone if the explosion was in his face, the shrapnel could go thru the eye into the brain.

The only kind of vapes that will potentially blow up are stick mods like the one in >>619649, which are literally just a battery with a wire running from each end directly into the heating element. They dump as much electricity into the posts as they can, and cheap chinese crap like this are so poorly designed you're practically begging for some sort of electrical failure. The only people using these fucking things are hardcore mouth-fedora users looking for ebin cloudz, in which case I fully support them blowing the user's faces off.

Yeah, I'm guessing it ignited his clothes at the same time it launched the shrapnel into his brain and he was too busy being dead to do anything about it.

Vaping softens your gums opening them up to infection, abscesses and all kinds of nasty fuckery. I had endless problems after around 2 years of vaping that left the dentist warning me that if the infections didn't subside he was going to need to pull a whole side of my teeth out. Purely by luck I mentioned it to a dude online, and the first thing he said was 'oh yeah, I had that too, do you vape?' He told me his dentist had figured it out - all these young people coming in with gum infections, and the common thread was they were all vapists. So I stopped and within a week everything was fine again after over 2 months of untold fucking agony and countless courses of antibiotics

tl;dr vaping gives you meth-mouth faggots

Vaping causes dehydration, giving the user a dry mouth, which is what leads to the dental problems. (unironically, that's what meth does too)

Lithium batteries will not burn 80% of your body, unless you're 18 inches tall and vaping a 16 inch mod.

They will however 'vent', or even go into full 'thermal release', but only if the user allows the plastic isulating wrapper to become pulled away from the heads of the battery, in which case it will ground, and bad things happen.

I vape my ass off, and I'm very careful to make sure my batteries are in good factory condition.

However, I know a friend who's lithium battery in his smartphone swelled up inside his phone, actually making the back of the phone bend outwards, and on the way to have his phone repaired, the battery vented, causing serious burns to his hand and wrist.

All mechanical items are subject to possible random systematic failure, and of course batteries are no different, but as long as you make sure the external wrapping of your batteries completely seal the lips of the battery ends, it's unlikely that they will vent or explode.

But if you put them in your pocket, loose change or a key can make contact, and then you're fucked.

Yeah this. Retard probably had underrated/cheap fake chinese batteries and was like "I CAN BUILD DAH LOWEST OHMS!". Probably built a .01 ohm build on this thing and shockingly his single battery couldn't output the sixty amps required.
