    Autopsy finds Tallmadge D’Elia died from projectile wound to head, in first such case in US

    Associated Press in St Petersburg
    Thu 17 May 2018 04.51 EDT

    A Florida man died when a vape pen exploded, sending fragments into his head and starting a fire that burned most of his body, an autopsy report has said.

    The case is the first in the US where a vape pen has been held responsible. The report said Tallmadge D’Elia, 38, of St Petersburg, was killed on 5 May by a “projectile wound of the head” after the explosion sent two pieces of the vape pen into his cranium.

    He also suffered burns on about 80% of his body. Firefighters found extensive fire damage in D’Elia’s bedroom, where his body was discovered, but minimal smoke, the report said.

    Such accidents are not unheard of: according to a US fire administration report, at least 195 electronic cigarettes exploded or caught fire from 2009 to 2016, causing 133 injuries, 38 of them severe.

    It is not the first time. Normally it only takes out a few teeth.
    I had a look at the brand he was using, they are milled out of solid metal.

    I hate it when people walk around with vapes the size of a small battery pack. Or mods as they call them.
    They are so anal about their fucking mods. I know a guy that can talk about nothing else than his vapes.

    I'd like to see a pic of the actual exploded device that had the explosive force of a bullet that pierced a skull.

    What exploded, the battery?

    Be wearing face shields with a mouth hole next.

    I wonder if he fucked with it trying to make it or if it was stock.
    They started venting the battery case so it wouldn't build pressure.

    Lol i carry a fairly large mod and i hate it because I know i get lumped in with the douches.

    Problem is the old single battery kind sucked for charge time and power and were in general a pain in the ass.

    Mine is simply a workhorse.
    I push the button and get a reliable hit every time and i change batteries 1 time a day. The difference between 1 battery and two made life worth living.
    Until it explodes in my face i reckon

    I bought a vape that looked like a gatling gun. That's the only reason I bought a vape, used it for a week then the oil leaked out pissed me off and I never used it again. FUCK VAPES...

    I have one of those original ones with the small batteries.
    I bought a kit with two of the pens in years ago, so when I want to use it I just carry a spare charged cell.

    Doesn't help me quit smoking though

    They constantly hit the damn things like it's a crack pipe. It looks like their smoking a robot penis.

    I was at a bar with my girlfriend a couple weeks ago, getting drunk and teasing some young hipster kid, I don't know what he was vaping but it smelled nasty like an outhouse. My girl checked him and said she'd punch him in the mouth if he blew that vape out near her again lol
