    So my dear local paper the Leicester Mercury is running a story of a guy whose vape "exploded" in his pocket. Its light on detail, but shows an ijoy Captain regulated mod and a fried battery.

    There's a few folks in the comments section slating vaping, I'm running the line between sympathy and underlining battery safety.

    The crappy thing is that due to the timing the damn story will probably be there for days :(

    She mentioned 3 batteries, suspect they were rolling about in his bag not in cases, if that's the case then no sympathy, suspect original story is cheap crappy batteries or it's fallen out the mod and come in contact with other metal in his pockets, either way you never read what batteries they were or where purchased from or how they were carrying them

    Considering I’d had a proper Xmas skinful when I posted my reply, I’m stunned it didn’t read “You are a CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNTTTTTTTT.”
