First, it's worth pointing out that 'e-cigs' aren't really exploding or catching fire, the batteries are. It's also worth pointing out that this isn't a phenomenon happening to just vape devices, it happens in a lot of devices that use lithium-ion batteries. Remember all the exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7's?
Here are some real simple tips to making sure you keep your batteries in 'safe condition':
1 - Sounds like common sense, but when it comes to batteries you get what you pay for. Avoid buying batteries from places like eBay where you could be getting extremely cheap products, try and buy from reputable shops, looking for the big names like Sony, LG, Samsung.
2 - Don't carry 'loose' batteries in your pockets. Batteries knocking around with keys, change, or whatever in your pocket can damage the batteries and lead to some problems. If you're going to be carrying extra batteries around with you, invest in some battery sleeves.
3 - Be careful when inserting/removing your batteries from mods/charger, it's real easy to damage batteries over time if you're not careful.
All pretty simple things to do to avoid problems, right?
