    Ecig battery manufacturer and vendor being sued

    Ugh, not cool.

    CORONA: Couple sues over e-cigarette battery

    Setup was just an ego-type 650mAh w/CE5 clearomizer and appears to be a bog standard ego-type USB charger. Lots of unknowns in this story - for example, had the battery been knocked around previously etc.

    Lithium batteries explode and catch fire in all sorts of equipment, not only ecigs. But again there is no "Cig" to cause any drama.

    Gotto wonder if there's an agenda behind this.

    While the liability and negligence lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for the incident, the attorney for the couple said there is a larger issue about the lack of regulations for the growing e-cigarette industry.

    Of course it's because the industry doesn't have enough regulation.

    How safe is it to charge an ecig battery from the cigarette lighter attachment while the car is actually going??

    Maybe a fault with the car ????

    Good point margy, but we have to assume that it was a usb type charger that only spits out 5v. so in theory it should be fine. To connect the battery to 12v would require some soldering work. Of course its possible that the charger was faulty. If that was the case we will never hear about it because that makes a piss poor story!!

    Yeh, just wait until all the Anti-Smoking NGO Big Pharma Shills hear about this.

    "Electronic cigarette battery explodes! - this is why they need to be regulated as medicines"

    Hoping no one will realise how much of a bullshit use of logic that it.

    She tried to get out of a still moving car....Darwin has his eyes on this one.

    Car was a Dodge charger, how ironic.

    Maybe venders should get public liability insurance.
