A 25-year-old man’s face was severely disfigured after a vape pen exploded in his mouth ripping off a chunk of his flesh, a lawsuit says.

David Bishop required 65 stitches in his face after the lithium battery in his e-cigarette exploded in May 2018, blowing pieces of the device into his face and splashing him with battery acid that burned his hand, mouth, and tongue.

Bishop, of Concordia, Tennessee, sued three companies involved in selling the vape pen and battery in October, and the lawsuit was transferred to federal court in February.

The lawsuit claims the explosion was so violent that debris from the e-cigarette flew in the air and left burn marks on the ceiling and wall in his home, according to Commercial Appeal.

It is also said to have damaged Bishop’s teeth. ‘It’s the prevalence and the intimacy of these devices, and if they are going to be so intimately used, they should be safe, said David Hill, Bishop’s lawyer.

Bishop’s lawyer, David Hill, declined to release photos of his clients face citing ongoing litigation. He is seeking monetary damages to be determined by a federal court and tried by a jury.

The device that reportedly detonated in Bishop’s mouth was a VGOD Pro Mech 2 vape pen that he bought at Create a Cig Cordova, according the lawsuit that targets both the the store and the manufacturer, as well as a US affiliate of LG Electronics, a South Korean company that made the batteries.

Create a Cig has offered more than 30 legal defenses denying fault for the explosion, including that the company did not make the e-cigarette or the battery, that Bishop assumed the risk of using the device, and that the explosion was his own fault.

VGOD is using similar defenses, arguing that: ‘(The) Plaintiff so carelessly and negligently conducted himself that he, by his own negligence, contributed directly and proximately to his own injuries.’ LG Electronics spokesman, John Taylor, said his company filed a motion asking the judge remove them from the lawsuit, claiming Bishop is ‘barking up the wrong tree because LG Electronics doesn’t make any batteries.’

He said a sister company, LG Chemical, actually makes the batteries.

Lithium batteries are often used in laptops, phones, and other electronic devices. In rare cases they can experience a failure called ‘thermal runway’ when the battery temperatures can reach temperatures as high as 1000F (538C) and explode, according to Consumer Reports.

E-cigarettes pipe-like shape can exacerbate danger related to these explosions ‘when the battery seal (at the end of the battery) ruptures, the pressure within the e-cigarette cylinder builds quickly until it ruptures, usually at the end.

As a result of the battery and container failure, one or the other, or both, can be propelled across the room like a bullet or small rocket,’ a 2017 US Fire Administration report said. --https://metro.co.uk/
