BBC1: The One Show – eCigarette explosions

A series of demonstrations filmed in BRE’s fire research Burn Hall was shown on BBC1’s evening programme The One Show. See the programme again via the BBC iPlayer until 14 May. When electronic devices are charged using a charger with a higher current output than that originally supplied, damage can be caused to the lithium batteries, which in turn can lead to a risk of fire or explosion.
