A Faulty Vape Battery Poses Significant Risks To Users
Many people have reported problems with their e-cigarette batteries exploding or catching on fire while recharging. While there are built-in safety measures to guard against these accidents, they can still occur. Typically, these explosions are linked to a product defect. If your battery exploded while recharging and injured you or a loved one, you may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer.

Causes Of Explosions And Fires In Recharging Batteries
Though batteries can also explode when they are not recharging, recharging batteries often explode for different reasons. Common causes include:
- Internal electrical component short circuits
- Poorly insulated charges
- Mechanical issues after the battery falls or suffers damage in an accident
- Incorrect installation
In most of these cases, the explosion occurs when the battery is too hot and can’t cool down. The scientific term for this is thermal runaway. The overheating turns the battery into a fiery projectile that can cause painful injuries.
