    So many maybes in the article. He 'might' have been using the oxygen tank at the time the fire took hold. The fire 'might' have been started by the charger used to charge his ecig batteries.

    'It was the ninth fire involving e-cigarettes on Merseyside alone since the turn of the year'

    Probably the same problem with shonky usb chargers we have been having here in OZ.

    I love reporters .... both quotes from the same article

    "A British man who died after his e-cigarette exploded and set fire to oxygen equipment has been named by police."

    "The exact cause of Thomson's death has not been established." .... and yet its been reported as above

    People die from walking into poles. It's only because of the current controversy over ecigs that anyone even gives a rodents rectum that some dude in UK died at all. It wouldn't have warranted a mention if someone didn't think they could cash in on the current debate of the moment. Why not let the fire die out naturally instead of fueling the fu@king thing! People disgust me.

    I'm not going to wave away concern, make excuses or defend vaping in this thread.
    Poor bloke.
    Condolences to his family and friends.

    Even still, there's definitely a problem with people using the wrong chargers for various batteries, ecigs, mobile phones, anything really. Especially when people are trying out different devices, it's easy to make that mistake. With an aging population it's a real hazard.
