"The vape pen that Mr D'Elia was using was modified, meaning it allowed the user more access to the battery and did not regulate the voltage in the same way as other e-cigarettes."

So, he made a pipe bomb. Nice fearmongering with the story though.

The report said emergency crews encountered "extensive" fire damage to the bedroom where the body was found, but minimal smoke with a lingering vanilla and bubble gum aroma.

It's not smoke, it's "vapor"

I was going to say he must have modified it and yup.  But that won't stop people from saying e-cigs are deadly and people who use them are douchebags.

I was able to quit smoking after more than 20 years thanks to e-cigs.  I just wish they were invented sooner.

No different than the US government saying assault rifles are safe, and it was actually the stock that kills people.

I also was able to quit after 25 years thanks to e cigs. Been off them over 3 years now and no interest in going back. Easiest quitting ever.
I think it's more effective than most methods because all other methods left me feeling like this: "Jesus, just one last smoke and I'll be ok, just one..."

None of that with ecigs.

I don't think I've read an article about an e-cig catching fire or exploding that wasn't plugged into the wrong charger. 100% of these are due to user error/failure.

Are his buddies going to pop the fluid canisters out of their vapes do they can play Amazing Grace with their vape pens like they are Kazoos?
