Well I've survived three hour long hot baths with my crappy PV so I'm sure you'll be OK. MInd you, I do have the window open to let steam, out...
I vape in the bath ever single night while listening to audiobooks with my Nano 6g clipped in my pinned up hair. I have been doing this for some years now. That is my relax time. Am I risking my life and limb?

I've been vaping less than a week and have vaped in the bath already Not too worried if I wreck my battery, I'm using cheapy 808's to start with. I figured that I read in the bath all the time with my droid, if it hasn't wrecked that yet, it's likely my e-cig will be fine
It's all about risk management. You're gonna do what you're gonna do. You're not going to be electrocuted from a battery in a bathtub. Now, A/C on the other hand....

Under the right conditions, yeah, I'd say there's an elevated risk of harm compared to normal conditions.
As a matter of risking life and limb? I would say no.
But, it is always a good idea to use caution when using an electrical device of any kind in humid, damp, or wet areas.
Also, lithium primaries, (non-rechargeable) when in a thermal overrun condition react violently (explosively) to water.
The good news is, that we use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries which contain no lithium metal, only *"lithium ions that are intercalated into graphite, lithium metal oxides, or lithium salts"* and therefore contain no lithium metal, so are safe around water when thermal.

I think it is because I am nice and relaxed and my mind clearing after a long day so I can enjoy it even more (this is in the hot tub, not the bath). Just keep the pv outside of it when vaping and under a towel when not using LOL As clutzy as I am I make sure I'm facing away from the water and leaning a bit outside of the hot tub while vaping because I would definately drop it!
OK, thanks. Anyway I was thinking, there must be millions of people who use cell phones, electrical cordless shavers, smart phones, iPads and iPods etc. in the bath or hot tub, and obviously ecigs too. I have never heard of any disaster.

Some people might not what a swamp cooler/evaporative cooler is (That is unless you live in a dry state like Utah) I have noticed better vapor indoors with a evaporative cooler running then outside where the air is dry. PG/VG are both hygroscopic meaning that they attract and hold water molecules from the surrounding environment. So humid enviroments like in the bath, hot tub, sauna, or rainy day/foggy day would produce more vapor.
