this kid went to a vape shop, couldn't afford a variable and legit mods, so he bought a used replica, class A.. whatever heck they call it. then he asked a vape shop dude to build for him, done.. then the battery, he said he has no money to buy new batteries, so he bought a used one with broken wraps (being a newbie at that).. the vape shop dude warned him to never use it and why the heck did he buy used battery with broken wrappings for 300pesos when he can buy a new one for only 150pesos more. the kid said, alright, not gonna use it.. will save up to buy a new one.. and he was on the news a few hours later afterwards...
good thing i noticed in PH vape shops, if you are new to vaping trying it for the very first time, no shops will sell you full mech mods. they will instead offer you variable mods, not because they want to sell more, but because for your own safety. i've been vaping for about 6months when i went to a shop to buy my first full mech mod, the shop owner asked me about ohms law, (im an engineer, so, yeah.. peanuts), went through some sort of screening which i barely passed, haha.. before he sold me the mod i always wanted, a parallel-series Zito BigBoss Mod..
And there we have it, another picture perfect photo op for the Antz...

We are living in a time when emotions are a favorite tool to sway the masses.
No one seems to suggest that we ban cars because there are wrecks daily. Let a few vapers a year experience hardware failure and the talk starts about ecigs being dangerous.

We live in a time where the masses are sheep who let a very few do their thinking for them.
Why did the vape shop sell used batteries in bad condition? They set that poor guy up.
I presumed he didn't get the battery from the vape shop, but from a "friend" or acquaintance. It says "the vape shop dude warned him to never use it," it doesn't sound like he bought it there, if they're telling him at the same time not to use it.
Seems the little doofus was pretty lucky. Doesn't look like he has permanent injuries...
There is nothing you can do to fix this issue. There will always be someone that will do stupid stuff with any kind of equipment and get hurt by their own stupid act.
Good point. I must have missed that part.
So where's the outrage and media hype over exploding laptops or flashlights?
you do realize that the batteries we use are the same batteries that are used in laptops and flashlights..right?!?!
 and as always with any electronic device, you should study it's safety rules/measures/ect....
That's what I got from reading it as well, however, then the shop proceeds to still sell the unfortunate guy a mech mod, knowing that he already has unsafe batteries for it.
Well, you gotta make that bread.
He didn't buy the mod from the vape shop.. He bought it from a used market off vaping fb group page.
That's even more confusing. Was the vape shop dude even in the shop when he built the coil for him...never mind, the details really don't matter, nothing to learn here, other than if you don't know what you are doing with a mech mod and have cells you bought used with damaged wrappers, you probably shouldn't be vaping that thing.
After buying the used mod and used battery from somebody, he went to the vape shop and asked to help him build a coil. Shops here charge like $2 for the coil builds.
Not really. Emotions aren't necessary for every sane person to already understand the simple fact gasoline should be banned because there exist people who pour gasoline onto a fire despite their having explicitly been told not to.
