Since e-cigs have been on the market, there have been various views on the safety of the product. Can an e-cigarette catch on fire or blow up in your face? The majority of the accusations cannot be proven. However, as with anything electrical, proper care must take place to help ensure safety.
Because the battery is the part that powers the e-cigarette, the utmost care needs to be given to that part of the device. At Eversmoke, we use a lithium-ion battery which is safer than any other battery type. Because of the safety of this battery it is used not only in our e-cig products but in laptops, cell phones and various other products.
First and foremost, you need to buy your e-cigarette products from a reputable company such as Eversmoke that believes in only using the safest components available. For example, we have a safety circuit microchip in our products to prevent overcharging and overheating. This is very important when you are researching and considering what company to use when making your e-cigarette purchase. Stay away from non-reputable type of companies that may use substandard components.
But as stated above, because these devices are run on batteries, proper care and common sense come into play. One very important piece of advice is to never leave a battery charging unattended. Also, a hot car is completely off limits to where you should leave a battery charging.
If the battery looks odd, swollen or feels very hot to the touch, do not use it. It is vital to make sure it is a properly operating battery before you use it. Also, if you take out the battery, make certain it is stored properly and has a case that can protect it.
Basically, if you have a good reputable e-cig, it has been manufactured properly and you take care of it, safety should not be an issue.
