Had just got through charging an Evic Vt with a Joyetech branded .5 amp wall adapter. As I was putting a tank on the mod, heard a crackling noise and looked over to see smoke and sparks issuing from the top of the adapter. Grabbed a towel and yanked it out of the wall socket. The smoke and stink was nasty, I’m guessing rather toxic, and had to open windows and fire up ceiling fans for a couple hours to clear the house. If I had not been there to nip this in the bud, could have turned out very bad.
There is an approximately 1/4" hole in the top of the adapter surrounded by melted plastic. Would post a pic, but not seeing that feature here. I will send an email and pic to Joyetech and will update with their response.
I always charge mod’s on a non combustible surface, never leave anything plugged in or “on”, and this reinforces that protocol.
This kind of lack of quality control by our friends in China is going to lead to a catastrophe, and give those in power a reason to implement regulations. Already had an ego style battery auto fire and melt down so this is making me feel a bit paranoid…
