E-cigarettes have become extremely popular in Norfolk over the last few years. Almost anywhere you go, you spot someone vaping—a trend that has caught on across the country. The appeal for many is the assumption that vaping is safer than traditional smoking. However, some e-cigarette users have discovered that vaping can pose an even greater physical danger.

Certain e-cigarette devices have been known to overheat, resulting in fires and explosions. Incidents have caused severe injuries to users, as well as property damage to homes and apartment buildings. These defective products malfunction due to lithium ion batteries overheating while charging or in use. And because there is little to no oversight in the industry, defective e-cigarette devices continue to flood the market, putting consumers in serious danger.
