Dangers of leaving e-cigarette in a hot car
Even though it might not seem particularly warm – never mind hot! – at the moment, this blog post today is written to tell you about the dangers of leaving your electronic cigarette in a hot car.
If you’re just quickly popping into the shop, it might not seem like such a big issue if you leave your electronic cigarette in the car. What’s the worst that could happen? Well actually, quite a lot!
Heat can damage your battery
One of the most crucial components of any e-cigarette, it’s important that you do what you can to keep the battery safe.
When you leave an e-cig in a hot car, the risk is that heat will damage your device. In a worst-case scenario, your device could end up on fire or exploding. Yes, the chances of this are relatively low, but why risk it?
E-liquid can be affected
Also an important part of your device, your e-cigarette isn’t any good if something’s wrong with your e-liquid.
When you leave your e-liquid in a car, it can make the liquid thinner and affect the taste. This will negatively impact your experience, which you don’t want to happen.
Plastic e-liquid tanks can warp and crack
Although it would have to be very hot for the above problem to occur, it’s not irregular to find this happening regularly, especially in the summer.
Although it’s not that expensive to replace the tank of your electronic cigarette, it can make a mess if the tank warps or cracks. When e-liquid leaks, it’s awful trying to clean all of it up.
If you have a glass tank, this isn’t likely something that you’ll have to worry about.
Although we’ve only mentioned 3 potential dangers, there are obviously plenty of others. Fortunately, the majority of these are easily avoided: take your electronic cigarette with you instead of leaving it in your car.
