    E-Cig Explodes in man's mouth apparently....

    thetelegraph.com.au | Breaking news, videos and pictures from Sydney, NSW, Australia and the world | DailyTelegraph
    AN electric cigarette has exploded in a Florida man's mouth, severely burning his face and knocking out some of his front teeth, a fire official says.
    North Bay Fire Department Fire Chief Butch Parker says it appears the cigarette's battery exploded while the man was smoking on Tuesday.

    The chief likened it to a sky rocket going off in the man's mouth. He also lost part of his tongue.

    Mr Parker says the man had been using electric cigarettes to help him quit smoking.

    Authorities don't know what model cigarette it was.

    The victim is being treated at a burn unit.


    Please don't let it be an Ego.

    sorry to make light of a serious issue. but i can see the next lot of anti ecigs ads looking like this, one incident like this will be blown out of proportion, excuse the pun, and the millions that die from smoking will be somehow overlooked.

    key quote

    "Kiklas cited a federal report that found 2.5 million Americans used electronic cigarettes last year.
    "There have been billions and billions of puffs on the cigarettes and we have not heard of this happening before," he said."

    Still worth following some basic battery guidelines for safety, but no need to panic.
