    Dave is absolutely correct, I check every battery I change coming out of a mod and coming off the charger. Only buy battery's from a reputable source and please follow all advice given here.

    I've had a couple of 18650's that hit the floor in a mod. Both created a deep dimple in the positive battery terminal. It's hard to really see how close the can is to the positive contact in a mod, but I can see battery meltdown if the outer part does manage to touch part of the positive terminal when its in a mod. I wrap suspects in tape and discard.

    I read the title and thought you meant emotional venting LOL
    Like someone gave you bad advice... ironically in a way they did.
    You got lucky... very lucky! Injury to yourself, others, fire. Lessen learned (l hope)

    Pfffft I thought that this one was genuine, would seem to be "well written" (relatively) anti-vaping spam then, "look out parents your kids are going to explode etc". So we can file this with the infamous "plastic coated teeth" and other gems we have had here ....
