The idea of vaping weed isn’t new, but recently it has received an extra boost from the proliferation of vape pens. The pens themselves are small and portable, and they look like a regular pen of the type that you’d use for writing notes.
Vape pens have been around for just a few years but they are already becoming extremely popular – especially with cannabis users. Not only do these devices allow you to inhale various types of cannabis, they also allow you to use cannabis concentrates which are meant for vaporizing.
Why a vape pen explodes? (and how to avoid it)
A vape pen is a popular device that delivers a hit of THC through vapor. Unfortunately, some of these vapes have problems.
Some of these problems include, but are not limited to, battery issues, cartridge issues, and cartridge issues. Adding to those problems, there are some manufacturers who put cheap batteries in their vape pens, and the batteries can explode.
When looking for a vape pen, you want to make sure it is made from top quality materials and doesn’t contain any toxic compounds that could cause a vape pen to explode.

How often do vape pens explode?
The vape pen explosion issue has been a hot topic recently, and for good reason. There have been several reports of vape pens exploding, and the consensus is that the exploding pens issues are caused by faulty batteries and soldering issues.
There have also been cases of the exploding pens being caused by incense residue in the pen, which can cause a reaction when vaporized.
Vape can explode anytime if you always over charge it and frequently using it with a high amount of temperature.
Most explosions occur due to misuse or incorrect use of the vaporizers. For example, some vapers have reported firing a mod when it is not filled with e-liquid, which can result in a violent explosion.
Some vape pen explosions are due to the battery’s failure. If the e-cigarette’s battery is damaged, or if the metal wrap which protects the batteries is compromised, they may explode.

Always follow advice about charging your vape device
There are numerous reasons why your vape could have exploded, the most common one being a bad connection. But, there are ways to prevent this from happening.
The good news is that it is very easy to fix your vape, the only thing you need to know is how to unplug it safely.
The best thing you can do is quickly and unplug the vape, bear in mind that there are different types of plugs and you need to know which one is the appropriate one for your vape.
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a vape device is whether or not it is powered by lithium-ion batteries. Many devices use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, and they have been known to overheat or even catch fire.
Here are some more guidelines to prevent your vape from overheating:
- Never charge your vaporizer while you sleep.
Charging your vaporizer while you sleep is a recipe for disaster. If you are lucky, you will only wake up to find the device on the floor after it has fallen off your nightstand and shattered.
But if you are like me, you will wake up in the middle of the night, only to find your beloved vaporizer completely dead. This is a situation that can cause injury, and worse, it will make it hard to get back to sleep at all.
That is when you will be forced to go out and buy a new device. The good news is that there is a simple trick to get you through this time. Simply charge your device when you are not using it.
- Don’t charge the device for longer than what the manufacturer recommends.
Companies make a big deal about how long you can use their products, and this is no exception for vaping devices. In fact, some manufacturers recommend full-charge and full-use times, while others state that the battery should last no more than two weeks.
While it is tempting to ignore the buzzword “recommended” and put in more power, remember that the battery is a consumable item. The best advice here is to charge the battery as soon as it gets low on power and not use it until it’s completely drained.
There are many devices on the market for vaping oil and e-cigarettes, which not only have a different form factor, but also a different charging mechanism.
Many devices have a ‘stack’ of multiple coils, and over time these coils become corroded and need replacing. The standard practice is to replace the entire device when this happens.
- Only use the original charger that came with the device.
The reality of modern day vaping is that the industry is flooded with cheap clones and knock-offs. These devices often lack essential safety features like temperature controls, high-amp safety protections, and the latest vaping technology.
If you go straight to the source and use only the original charger that came with your device, you’ll never have to worry about these things. If you do, you could end up with a nasty shock when your device suddenly stops working.
- Don’t charge It from the TV.
Many people like a quick hit of herb when they want to relax, and they use a vaporizer to do it. Some of these vaporizers have a built in battery that can be charged from the TV.
It’s not uncommon for people to use their televisions as a power source for their personal devices. Whether they are using them to charge their phones, tablets, e-cigarettes or even bicycles, this practice can provide a convenient source for some consumers.
However, it is important to keep in mind that televisions are not designed to be used as a power source for electronic devices, and this can cause damage to the device.
Whenever you are using a vaporizer, you are exposing yourself to harmful chemicals that can cause lung damage and cancer. It’s best to buy a vaporizer that can be charged from the wall. There are several models to choose from.
- Store your vaporizer safely & Away from the sun.
One of the most common mistakes made by people new to vaporizers is storing their vaporizer or vaporizer kit in a place where it’s exposed to the sun. The consequence of this is that your vaporizer will absorb some of the suns rays and this can lead to it overheating and therefore malfunctioning.
Always keep in mind keeping your vaporizer safe while traveling is important to ensure you continue to receive the best possible vaporizing experience.
Although some vapes (like the Volcano) are designed to be hands free and can be used without the case.
Most vapes are not and need to be protected from the elements in order to ensure the coils/wick/screen aren’t damaged. The best place to store your vaporizer is inside of a travel-ready dry herb vaporizer case while traveling.
Final thoughts about the precautions you must take to prevent your vape device from exploding.
Before you start vaping weed, you should check the compatibility of the vape device with herb, learn how to use it properly, and take some precautionary measures, as these devices are complicated and have the risk of exploding, which could be harmful to your health.
The only way to prevent an explosion is to make sure that you purchase a device from a reputable source and use quality batteries that are not counterfeit.
