Can a disposable vape catch on fire?
Vape fires can occur when there is a malfunction in the battery. The vape battery can fail if the battery discharges for too long, thereby causing the battery to overheat. The vape battery can also catch fire when the vaporizer mod draws power beyond the safe range of the battery, similarly causing it to overheat.
How do I know if my vape is going to explode?
If an atomizer draws more current than a battery can safely provide, and there is no electronic cutoff in the device, the battery can overheat and go into thermal runaway. That can cause a fire, or—if the battery can’t easily vent the heat—an explosion.
Can a disposable vape overheat?
