    These things are known to spontaneously explode without warning because of the batteries. I'd be weary next time I stand next to one of these guys, but then again the devices are completely hidden most of the time. It's like standing next to a suicide bomber.

    Smokey Mountain is a former open pit garbage disposal site in the heart of Manila back in the 80s.

    its trendy to hate one ecigs these days but I feel really bad for the dude. Ive used them in the past but being scared of something like that is the exact reason I stopped. You cant leave those things in your car or they will exploded.

    I find it weird how the new thing is to call ecig users gay. Like shit, people are just trying to be healthier. I'd rather smell vape juice than cigarette smoke that is going to stain my clothes just from walking through it.

    How big the explosion could be to cause 80% burns?

    What sort of crazy shit was he using to cause that much damage. Maybe stick to matches and a joint.

    What if these things were manufactured to be weapons for use against Americans? Just like the exploding washing machines.

    Sounds like some combo of faulty battery plus dumbass settings.
