"The two major causes of dramatic failures with the larger units are overcharging of the battery and then the shorting of the battery", said Thomas Kiklas, the chief financial officer of the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association. Wilder told ABC Action News that he, as well as many other local store owners, won't sell unregulated e-cigarettes.

The report blames the incidents on lithium-ion batteries in the products.

According to the Food and Drug Administration the exact causes of vape pen explosions arent yet clear; however, it could stem from battery-related issues.

Though such incidents are rare, this isn't the first time a spontaneous e-cigarette explosion has raised concerns. D'Elia was apparently using a higher wattage vaping pen that came packaged with a more powerful battery.

He explained: 'Any other e-cig that has a computer chip in it prevents that from happening'.

'It can explode and at that point it can project either the pieces of the lighter itself or the vape pen'.
