Explosions tend to make headlines. When it's a terrorism-geared bomb, the reaction is generally one of sadness. When it's the accidental exploding of an electronic device, we're either scared or curious (or both). Electronics and explosions took a nice walk down media lane in 2016, when electronics giant, Samsung had to recall 2.5 million of their Galaxy Note 7 phones. While the device boasted lots of shiny features, consumers were unimpressed to find exploding as a phone's way of announcing it's fully charged.
While few and far between, exploding vapes have also made headlines. 2017 saw London's Euston station briefly evacuated after an e-cig "exploded". Coupled with separate Hull and Salisbury incidents, "exploding vapes" have become a bit of a fear phrase. We're here to explain what happens, debunk the myths, and give you the full low-down.
