    EGO One Mega Exploded

    Suppose its just another example why battery safety is important.
    I won an ego Once Mega kit not long ago thought I'd do the good thing and give it to my bro to get him off the cigs.
    Apparently last night while on charge in the bedroom. It vented burning a massive hole in the carpet. Lucky they were home and no one was injured.
    Not to blame the vendor how are they suppose to know. It's a manufacturing fault. This just another example of why we should be cautious. And has given me a bit of a wake up call.

    Pics to come when I get them.

    Not sure yet. Just happened this morning ill find out. But they only have a USB port. Ill get him to take a pic of the charger.
    He still wants to vape. Now he just wants replaceable batteries and a proper charger. Will charge on the concrete as well.
    Should get him a lipo bag to make him feel safer.

    It is LiPo, so 1C charging only. My wife's phone uses a 2A charger, no way would I use that to charge my eGo one.

    I think that there would be a lot of people out there that don't honestly realise the difference. When I had my isticks I bought a couple of one amp chargers specifically for them. If you use your average phone charger (2 amp), the mod heats up.

    TBH on the smaller built in mods, I'd stick to a 500mah charger. May take longer, but it's safer.

    actually, (just sitting here thinking about it), it's probably something that members should be mindful of when recommending mods with non removable batteries to new vapers.

    I know I've suggested an istick 30w on several occasions, but I haven't thought to mention to make sure they are using the right kind of charger I will make sure I do in future.

    whenever i get a new bit of gear i check to see if either the mod or the charger heat up while charging - ive also made a point of telling the friends ive got onto vaping this as well

    gt - wtf does 1c mean lol and how does it relate to amps i wonder - a short session on google only confused me
