Lawsuits have been filed in connection with exploding e-cigs – battery powered cigarettes which release water vapor instead of smoke. The claims come as the federal government is reviewing possible regulations for e-cigs. One suit has been filed in California after a woman claimed an e cigarette battery exploded in her car and caught her dress on fire. A Florida man claimed he suffered facial burns when an electronic cigarette exploded in his mouth and an Oklahoma woman said one exploded in 2012 and damaged her hearing and vision. And more recently, an Atlanta woman claimed an e-cig exploded and shot flames across her room.
