    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...

    All it takes is a drop of water in your mod to short circuit the whole thing, linking the positive and negative terminals together, or bypassing the activation button.

    The drop of water could drip directly inside, or build up from condensation.

    I know, it's probably not a deadly mistake, but the potential to cause harm is irrefutably present.
    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 can't wait to try this. My only fear is that it would cause a short. Is this a reasonable fear to have?

    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....

    But say your mod gets water in it, AND the protection on your battery fails. Then your battery will vent.

    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.

    I have noticed the same thing about PG/VG and humidity levels.
    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.
