Okay, so today I had an unfortunate experience. One of those “It’ll never happen to me” experiences. My Coolfire IV TC 100 Limited Edition, today, whilst locked and unsupervised, auto-fired in my work locker. This was a continuous auto-fire causing the tank to become so heated it exploded and began to bellow smoke from my locker. Had I not gone for my lunch break at the time I did, the building was moments away from triggering the Sprinkler system potentially causing an evac.My locker was also stuffed with another of my Mods, Deodorant, spare t-shirt and a few other things not healthy in a fire.
My bigger concern however is that this can happen whilst locked, and upon inspecting my Coolfire IV… it is still locked. This could be very different had it been at night, where I have both my mods next to my bed.
I’m not saying all vaping devices are a danger, get rid etc. Of course not. But I would like to urge everyone to remove the tank completely when the device is not in use and unsupervised for extended periods of time just for all your safety. It could be anyone; and I know it’s a “it’ll never happen to me” moment, but it did happen.
