In all fairness, I personally know someone who had their mod "explode," in their pocket.
Thing is - dude was incredibly overweight.
He had an unregulated box-mod; meaning that the button used to fire the mod has no safety/lock feature. Hence why it's HEAVILY considered to "pulse,"
Anyways, the dude sat on his mod which was in his back pocket - and again, no safety features. (What a dumbass!)
Of course, within a few minutes of him sitting on his mod and it firing the entire time, it overheated - and it left a pretty nasty mark on the back
of his leg.
This dude was absolutely vehement in that "it was not his fault," "the mod shouldn't get that hot," but I'm clueless - did the guy not know what an
unregulated device is?
Did he not realize that putting an unregulated device, right underneath of your body while sitting, is probably not the best idea?
After this happened - many people asked questions such as, "How can you prevent this? If I leave my device out in my car at work, how do I not know
that it won't auto-fire?"
Uh - well, Einstein, you could remove the batteries, and put them in solely when they use them? OR, you could invest in a device - such as mine - that
has a digital readout of battery charge/life, as well as the ohm level, and variable W.
My device even has a setting to run in Joule mode, which takes Titanium/Lead coils - and, it is generally known that these are not "safe," to
inhale... but guess what? The type of coil used is specially designed, to cut itself off after the coil reaches a certain temperature as to prevent
At the vape shop I visit, I personally know and am good friends with not only the guy who owns/created the two current shops, but they are VERY, VERY
happy to tell you by-name, who makes the juice they recieve, where it comes from, etc etc.
For instance, they have a "home," juice that is significantly cheaper than brand name juice lines, and their home juice is created by ONE person.
All in all, I would put my weight and trust into the person who makes the juice versus someone that sees something on the Internet and can't control
Anyway, to put in the layman terminology - and the irony is thick was this:
IT IS A FREEDOM THING. Yeah... freedom to do what you please as a consenting adult, whilst hurting nobody (but potentially yourself), in America?
I personally do not need the government, or anyone else to tell me what is and isn't healthy for me. I take care of myself, I am told daily "I am too
skinny," "vaping isn't good for you," I just wish these people would collectively come together and piss off - go and dictate to each other how to
live your lives, and leave me the HELL out of it.
When I was in college, I vaped regularly throughout class - mainly due to not taking massive hits and blowing huge clouds, do that elsewhere - and in
particular my Philosophy professor had no quarrel with it. Within a few short months, "electronic smoking devices," were all but banned from campus
and were to be used is "smoker," areas, which is completely understandable.
I was told at a restaurant, while being outside in the garden area, that I wasn't allowed to vape. So I promptly ordered myself four beers, and was
thoroughly hammered before I left the restaurant.
But hey, it's all about "safety," right?
