    Thanks for the info! I was considering buying Kanger products, and seeing that they're acting responsibly make me more comfortable about buying their products. Thanks again!

    Is there any specific information that identifies the battery other than "manufactured before 6/24/2013"? Would like to remove it from my inventory and I am going to contact factory and vendor reps, but the articles just tell a story. I could not find any other way to identify the battery in question.

    Driving back from the bay area Sunday I put my Kanger EVOD in my pants pocket and forgot to stash it powering the battery down. It got real hot and gave me quite a start! I pulled it out and powered it down remembering the post that said they could blow. I bought it from Heaven's Gifts and they notified me that my batteries may be one of the recalled even though I had just ordered the kit. Now I have (4) batteries and they all work fine!. Discount Vape told me that my battery is a 510 so now I know I can get them from anywhere. I now know when putting it away to power the battery down EVERY TIME! That is until I can find a pocket clip that fits the 0.555 diameter of the battery. I will keep the button toward the front of the shirt pocket or and unoccupied corner so it will not be actuated unintentionally. I also saw a post that the fires could be caused by using them right after charging so I let them rest after charging. This I can do since I have (4) of them:p

    I'm new to the site and vaping. It was good to see how quickly the community got the word out and in such a straight forward no drama way :).

    You don't have anything to worry about unless you bought it from Heaven's Gifts. Seems that this was the only vendor that received these recalled EVODS.

    If using right off a charge can be an issue wouldn't a passthrough battery bea bad idea? I ask because that's what I have a 1100 mah passthrough. Must confess I bought at a cigarettes cheaper store and don't know who the manufacture is.
