Aggressive law firms are recruiting vapers and promoting these suits as opportunities. We recently reported on a South Carolina man suing Sony for a battery that exploded when he carried it uncovered in a pocket with change and keys.
That’s a recipe for battery disaster. And it appears that the Plainfield, IL man did the same thing — but in this case, he had two batteries as spares in his pocket. Metal objects can connect the positive and negative poles of a battery, which causes a dead short. And that’s how many, if not most, “battery explosions” occur.
