    The thing above the fireplace is a picture. The camera is somewhere around the TV, you can by the changes in lighting on the mantle. I would guess the TV is beside (to the left, from camera view) of the camera.

    Yeah, I was thinking that it was a mirror. Ever notice how fast everyone runs away?

    There's always somebody anxious to pee in somebody else's Wheaties! :) Presenting my evidence:

    Who would place "a picture" at the top of the wall instead of centering it above the fireplace? It was placed as high as possible to avoid the heat and any smoke or soot.

    Who would have all their furniture arranged facing a static picture rather then a TV?

    The "picture" never changes you say? Easy peasy! They paused Honey Boo Boo :)mad:) so when they wake up, they could pick up where they left off! (Yes, it sure looks like a reflection that could be on a picture, mirror, or TV)

    If, a big if, you are correct, that could be used as evidence the person arranging the room should not attempt something as complicated as using vape gear!

    "Lighten up, Francis!" A little levity is good for your health!

    ...I've never seen a TV with a beveled edge. (looks like a high mirror)
    Going through the video click by click, that thing started like a flare.
    Must say...I think they handled things well - with a follow up of the fire extinguisher arriving.

    I'm gonna change my opinion to a mirror. It does have beveled edges and you can see the pot shelf and vase in the mirror above the "dangerous" desk that held the vape.

    I can't believe needing to defend an entirely fictitious post intended to inject a modicum of levity into a subject!

    I guess if somebody wants to mount a mirror high on a wall to do little more but to reflect the ceiling, more power to them!

    A flat screen TV with a beveled edge? ABSURD! IMPOSSIBLE! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    It is either a mirror OR a TV with the shiniest, most reflective screen ever created. As 90VG pointed out, if you look at it closely, you can clearly see a reflection of the shelf and vase that is above the explosion. So my vote is for mirror. I am not sure there is even a TV in that room. I have some security cameras at my house and in low light they do fluctuate the lighting compensation just like this one seems to do.

    The only mod that ever failed me was a Magneto. The plastic rhreads gave out and the spring forced the magnet down onto the fire button. It was lust sitting on the table, I went to pick ot up and it was HOT. It was an 18650 so it vented, but no fireball. That and the issue with the istick battery is one of the reasons I prefer mods with removable batteries.

    With audio enhanced here is what I heard in the video, right before it blew:

    Guy: "Hey, you wanna keep an eye on that?"

    Other guy: "Ya, I'll be watching her."

    (But it could have been the movie)

    And they were talking about a cylinder before that, but I can't understand it clearly.

    It definitely was charging, I could see the guy pull the cord from the wall afterwards. When it blew, it actually jiggled the charging cord. Since the device comes with a charging cable, but not a charger, that could be the issue.

    I super zoomed the video in Blender, modified volume, etc.

    You can kinda tell by the lighting that it's a movie playing.

    Any news on what caused this from Smok? I have this device and am worried about plugging it in now. I am using my cell phone cable to recharge it but it is right next to me and if it blew up like that it would have burn me. I am going to do the recharging away from me from now on. Thank you for the video.

    If, as a manufacturer, you put a USB charging port on your device, imo you have a duty to make it as safe as possible. There's not only one type of USB wall charger and not only one type of port on a computer, the device has to come with appropriate security measures. I'm not at all surprised that of the bigger names SMOK are the ones releasing a product that's not up to the task, assuming the story is real.

    Something everyone should be aware of and take to heart. Most everything you buy in the US is regulated for safety. Not ecigarettes or anything the do with them. Some companies add a few safety features, but vapors are screaming for a $5 device. With cheap you get poorly designed, untested, most likely hazardous. You add that to the general public with little or no electronic safety knowledge it really surprises me that this is not a daily occurrence.
