The media is awash with stories of “exploding” vaporisers. As we know - mobile phones have as much chance of venting as vaporisers do but there are reasonable steps that retailers can take in order to mitigate the potential dangers of electronic vaporizers and improve the overall safety / reputation of the vaping industry.
Mod hardware, where electronic circuitry is employed will always be genuine. Vendors will endeavour to advise people to follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to charging.
Mechanical mods can pose a significant safety threat in the hands of an ill informed and ill equipped user. Vendors will not supply these devices to new users without making them aware that these are advanced devices and users must have appropriate knowledge of both battery safety and Ohm’s Law
As a general rule, vendors should not sell clones of electronic devices.
Clones of other products such as RDAs and mechanical mods should be clearly identified. If sold online the word ‘clone’ must appear in the product title and description. If sold in a physical store the customer must be made aware that the product they are buying is a clone
