In this pieced together video, I share the shocking truth about vaping and headlines.  It isn’t too often that I let the media and those against vaping get to me, but sometimes it does, and you just want to set the record straight.  It’s unfortunate that there are so many smokers that have passed up vaping due to headlines and bad portrayals vaping has endured.  And, it’s also unfortunate that not only are smokers thinking the worst of vaping, but the general public, even those who don’t smoke or vape, are getting the same picture that’s continuously being painted by the media.

The shocking truth is, vaping was meant to help, not to destroy.  And, these headlines you see as you scroll over your Facebook feed, are merely snippets used to cloud your judgement and detour you and your family from a life saving product.  But you ask why?  It’s very simple — vaping is still new, people are scared of change, and for the rest it’s all about greed.

I’m not claiming that vaping doesn’t have its flaws, but it’s certainly not killing people like tobacco cigarettes has done for years upon years.  One of the worst headlines of all that continues to pop up and continues to detour people from learning more about vaping or giving it a try, is the ecig explosion or fire claims.  What many people don’t realize is that any device with a battery has the potential of exploding if not cared for properly.  Your cell phone, laptop or electronic cigarette can burst into flames at anytime if you leave it in a hot car.  You have to understand that even though we take for granted that our everyday devices are supposed to work flawlessly and could never cause us harm, they very well can.

I made this video and brought on this topic to finally lay it to rest.  I won’t devote this much of my energy to it again, but I will continue to defend the product that has saved my life.  I hope you enjoy the video, and thank you for watching.


  1. Hey Blake on my last battery purchase the Efest company sent a book mark that resembled an 18650 battery that specified that all batteries can explode and catch fire with a list of safety measures and precautions that should be taken. For instance don’t use batteries with damaged plastic wraps etc. More detailed operation you can check it on Efest official website. In general I think this is a good practice that should be included in all brands. be educated and be safe always

    • Lesie, that’s a good point. You know, most batteries are being sold in a small box that lacks information, nor includes any type of precautions, typically. Many of the new vapers getting into the game are starting off with 18650 devices and have no clue how to handle or care for them. I would love to see maybe a small pamplet in these boxes. We really can’t blame those that are handling these batteries like shit, because the manufacturer doesn’t even tell them how. For example: the guy in the video that stuck an 18650 battery in his pocket. Great points Leslie!

  2. I smoked for 56 years and NOTHING made it possible for me to quit until Feb. 4th 2016. Started vaping and felt better in just one week and have not smoked since. I have every intention of continuing to Vape regardless of whatever money scams the feds come up with. I do have emphysema but I no longer cough my head off and I’ve not felt this good in years. Vaping saved my life! Take the government propaganda VERY LIGHTLY! All they are looking for are ways to take away our rights and make the almighty dollar! They cannot be trusted or believed!

  3. I’m a vaper. I had an aneurysm 2.5 years ago and my neuro-surgeon said I needed to quit smoking to extend my life and reduce the chances of another aneurysm.
    So I checked my options, chanting, patches and gum. The whole gamut. I learned about e-cig’s while I was at a tobacco store. They had some cheap set ups and a wide arrange of juices to choose from! So my husband and I bought them and loved them. It wasn’t long at all before we upgraded and got educated at an actual Vape Shop.
    My doctors were happy with my choice! Not only will it improve my life span but my doctor told me I was now an ex-smoker!! I.loved the way that sounds.
    What gets me…. is when I am vaping outside a building and someone usually security comes along and tells me I have to vape clear over ‘there’ with the smokers!!! GRRRRR.
    My asthma is greatly improved, my blood pressure is down, and I don’t stink!!
    Thank you for your video. I’m sharing it! ?
