How likely is your e-cigarette to explode?

你的電子煙爆炸的可能性有多大?

 

資料來源:英國廣播公司 BBC.com / 翻譯及編輯:HC VAPE TEAM

A man in America died when his vape pen exploded, but how dangerous are e-cigarettes?

美國有一名男子因為他的「筆型電子煙」爆炸而死亡,但電子煙有多危險?

The case has made headlines around the world, and is believed to be the first death caused by vaping products in the US.
The man, Tallmadge D'Elia, died at his home in Florida  when his device blew up and projected fragments into his skull.
He was said to have suffered burns over 80% of his body.

該案件成為全球頭條新聞之一,並被認為是美國第一起因電子煙產品而死亡的案件。

這名男子名叫 Tallmadge D'Elia 在佛羅里達州的家中死亡,據說當時他的裝置爆炸後,碎片投射到他的頭骨中,導致身體80%以上的燒傷。

 

 

好的,我想台灣媒體和衛福部大概就只報導到這邊了,然後以下空白….
衛福部透過這件事情告訴民眾電子煙很可怕

讓我們來看看外國媒體如何理性的報導。

 

 

But how common are these kinds of incidents?  但這些事件有多常見呢?

In the UK, e-cigarettes have caused burns and fires, yet these cases are rare.
Experts say the man who died was using a particular kind of vape pen, known as a mechanical mod,
which is not that common in the UK.

但這些事件有多常見呢? 在英國,電子煙確實有已引起燒傷和火災,但這個情況很少見。

專家說:他使用的是一種特殊的「筆型電子煙」,被稱為「機械桿」(Mechanical mod),在英國並不常見。
 

 

Mechanical mods do not use inner circuitry to regulate the voltage, and most e-cigarettes have more built-in safety features. Yet even these safer products can cause burns or fires if incorrectly used.
Mark Gardiner, lead officer for product safety at the Chartered Trading Standards Institute, explains:"Enthusiasts might experiment with different batteries and e-liquids to try and get the biggest vape.
This can result in people building their own systems which can generate a lot of heat and then explode.

"That said, even an unmodified product can go wrong, as can any product containing a lithium-ion battery.
And if a battery fails and explodes then obviously it's an extra hazard if it's in your mouth."

特許貿易標準協會(Chartered Trading Standards Institute)的產品安全負責人馬克加德納解釋說:

「重度玩家可以(能)嘗試使用不同的電池和煙油試圖發揮更大的效能。

也由於玩家會建立自己的使用系統,近而導致產生過熱然後爆炸。」

機械桿不使用內部電路來調節電壓,況且大多數電子煙具有更多內建的安全功能。

然而,即使這些產品更安全,若經不當使用也會導致灼傷或火災。

 

「也就是說,即使是未經自行調校的產品也會出現問題,任何包含鋰離子電池的產品都會出現問題。

如果電池會發生故障並爆炸真的是挺危險的,特別是它還在你嘴裡。」

Fire services are reporting being called out to a small number of fires caused by exploding e-cigarettes usually as a result of using the wrong charger,
over-charging the battery, or incorrectly storing it.
Gary Asquith, station commander at West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service, says: "It's not the e-cigarettes that are unsafe in themselves, but the misuse of the lithium-ion batteries that they use."

根據消防部門紀載,確實有因為電子煙使用錯誤的充電器,

電池過度充電或存放不當,而引發少量爆炸或火災。

西約克郡消防和救援服務中心的車站指揮官加里阿斯奎斯說:

「並不是電子香煙本身不安全,而是錯誤的鋰離子電池使用方式。」

 

He recalls the case of a man whose spare e-cigarette battery exploded in his pocket. "We posted a CCTV video of a man in Leeds who was carrying a spare battery for his e-cigarette in his pocket.
It came into contact with a coin and a key, short-circuited and exploded.
"

他回憶起一名男子的情況,他的備用電子煙電池在口袋裡爆炸。

「我們在利茲發布了一個新聞影片,裡面有一個男人在口袋裡隨身攜帶電子煙的備用電池,

電池接觸到一枚硬幣和一把鑰匙,因而產生短路並爆炸。」

 

"Most people aren't aware that this might happen. You can get carry cases for your spare batteries which you should put them in if you are going to keep them in your pocket."

「大多數人都沒有意識到會發生這種情況。你當然可以隨身攜帶備用電池,

但如果你要將它們放在口袋裡,你應該將他們單獨收好或放置於額外的保護殼裡。」

 

Mr Asquith also says he's been called out to a number of house fires caused by incorrect charging of e-cigarettes. "If you buy an e-cigarette and it doesn't come with a charger, and then you buy a cheap one online,that is when you might see the lithium-ion battery overcharging and catching fire."

阿斯奎斯先生還說,還有幾起房屋火災是因為電子煙的買到不恰當的價錢。

「你在網路上購買便宜的電子煙,而且它沒有配備自己充電器,那麼,你可能會看到你的鋰離子電池過度充電並著火。」

In February, Public Health England commissioned a report into e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products.
They found that there are three million users of e-cigarettes in the UK, compared with nine million cigarette smokers.

2018年2月,英格蘭公共衛生局發佈了一份關於電子煙和傳統紙菸產品的報告。

他們發現英國有300萬電子煙用戶,而吸煙者有900萬。

The report noted: "Exploding e-cigarettes can cause severe burns and injuries that require intensive and prolonged medical treatment,
especially when they explode in users' hands, pockets or mouths.

"Incidents are very rare, the cause is uncertain but appears to be related to malfunctioning lithium-ion batteries."

該報告指出:「電子煙爆炸可能導致嚴重燒傷和傷害,需要進行密集和長期的醫療,特別是當它們在用戶的手、口袋或口腔中爆炸時。」

「事故非常罕見,原因尚不確定,但似乎與鋰離子電池故障有關。」


編:劃重點,問題在「電池」,而不是「電子煙」!

 

However, the authors of the report cautioned that e-cigarettes remained far safer than cigarettes which cause many more fires and injuries annually.
and have helped many people give up the habit.

然而,該報告的作者提醒到:「電子煙比香菸更安全,香菸每年導致更多的火災和傷害。」

健康專家表示,電子香煙的危害性至少比吸煙低95%,並幫助許多人放棄了這種習慣。

 

Dr Humayun Khan, a consultant in burns and plastic surgery at Wythenshawe hospital Manchester, said incidents of burns were infrequent.
"We come across these cases about one or twice a year. They are mostly of minor injuries with small areas of burns.
"As I recall they are mostly related to leakage or overheating of the batteries rather than an explosion. We have treated these superficial burns without surgery."

曼徹斯特醫院(Wythenshawe Hospital)燒傷和整形外科顧問 Humayun Khan 博士表示,燒傷事件很少發生

「我們每年遇到這些病例大約一到兩次。他們大多是輕微受傷,燒傷面積小。」

「我記得它們主要與電池的洩漏或過熱有關,而不是爆炸。我們已經治療了這些表面燒傷而沒有接受手術治療。」

 

編:好的,英國BBC報導和醫生說是電池導致的,但咱們衛福部似乎不這麼認為,你認為呢?
歡迎留言語我們討論。

最後,電子煙畢竟是電子產品,在使用上要注意,
如果想要自行調效,歡迎到店裡跟HC VAPE的同仁們聊聊

 

如何安全使用電子香煙使用產品隨附的充電器給產品充電

  • 不要讓電子煙充電充整晚

  • 如果電池開始(容易)變熱,請淘汰它們

  • 不要在充電時使用

  • 不要以任何方式自行調整產品

  • 如果損壞、洩漏或潮濕,請不要使用電池,並妥善處理(電池記得要回收)

  • 充滿電後不要讓它們再插上電源,過度充電

How to use e-cigarettes safely

  • Charge them only with the charger they come with
  • Don't leave them charging overnight
  • If batteries start to get hot, discard them
  • It's not a good idea to use them when charging
  • Do not modify products in any way
  • Do not use batteries if damaged, leaking or wet and dispose of them appropriately (via local refuse schemes)
  • Do not leave them plugged in once fully charged
