So a co-worker told me that his e-cig battery exploded the other night while he was charging it in his mod.
I believe his setup is Smok Procolor kit with Samsung 30Q.
The root cause is unclear as to why it exploded. He has never taken his batteries out of the mod since putting it in. He has always charged it via USB through the mod itself, no external charger.
He said he dropped the mod a few times here and there. He dropped it one time during the day on the night that it happened but said he was using it right after and everything seemed normal. This is all the information we have gathered.
My initial thought is it’s because he’s using the Smok Procolor as a charging device instead of an external battery charger.
Does anyone have any clue as to what happened given the above?
I have a Smok Procolor and I can tell you it’s a POS, Smok and Sigelei - never again.
But I have been using it fine, the only difference is I have never charged the batteries through the mod, I have an external for that.
I’m glad that it didn’t happen while he was using it and very glad that nothing serious happened to him.
