E-Cigarettes Can Be a Ticking Time Bomb in Your Pocket

E-cigarettes, also called "e-cigs" or "vapes," are relatively new products intended to replace traditional cigarettes. Since 2008, e-cigarette sales have exploded from $20 million in annual sales to a $4 billion market.

Electronic cigarettes (commonly referred to as e-cigarettes) were designed to offer a nicotine fix without the side effects of traditional tobacco cigarettes.

However, the inherent characteristics of lithium batteries can cause these devices to become a mini bomb and spontaneously explode or catch fire in your hand or pocket.
