Exploding E-Cigs!

Posted: Updated:

Larry Timmons says his wife Judy's e-cigarette was plugged into the cigarette lighter for about two hours when it blew up in their back seat. The mishap caused thousands of dollars worth of damages to the stereo system ....interior of their truck. Despite the damage, Mrs. Timmons says they're just glad their grandchildren weren't in the car at the time of the incident.       

Others haven't been so lucky, including a three-year-old boy from Utah who suffered first and second degree burns. That child's mother's exploding electric cigarette set his car seat on fire in September. Electric cigarettes have gained popularity as of late, due largely in part to their claims to be less harmful than conventional cigarettes.
