Niceville, FL – This is an update to a story about a man who reportedly suffered some severe facial injuries after an electronic cigarette blew up in his mouth.

Earlier this month, the news was reporting that 57-year-old Tom Holloway was using an electronic cigarette in his home. The Vietnam vet had stopped smoking a couple years ago and used the device in an effort to curb the urge to pick them back up again.

On this particular day, the device exploded in his mouth. His wife reported hearing a sound like a firecracker going off right before she heard her husband scream. The explosion knocked out all Holloway’s teeth, part of his tongue, and severely burned his face. One of the police officers who responded to the home said it was like a bottle rocket had exploded in the man’s mouth.

The cause of the explosion was being blamed on a faulty, rechargeable battery that reportedly flew out of the device and into a closet which it then set on fire. But new information has come out that has some saying the exploding device was not an electronic cigarette at all, but rather a modded version of one.

According to Puffweb.com, an electronic cigarette review website, the device that exploded in Holloway’s mouth was actually an electric cigar. This, along with several 3.0 volt CR123A type batteries found in the room suggests the device Holloway was using may have been intentionally modified and outside the specs of industry standard safety and quality control.

I wasn’t aware you could mod the things but I should have figured as much. I mean, if a device is electronic then you can bet someone out there is modding the hell out of it. In regards to electronic cigarettes, there are websites dedicated to just reviewing the mods, some of which are the size of your mother’s dildo. Obviously, the practice of modding e-cigarettes is not one e-cigarette manufacturers recommend you do.

“Mod’s are add-ons to existing devices and can result in fire or explosions, and are notorious for doing so. Some of these devices are even made by individuals, not companies, which do not have the means to test for safety like major manufactures,” according to Puffweb’s Dan Henry, and why he says they do not review electric cigars or Mods  on their website.

    I’m going to have to rethink the butt-plug mod I have in the works.

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    My face never looks like that when things explode in my mouth.

    Sometimes the heat that comes off of an e-cig if you take too long of a drag back to back scares me. I would not had been shocked to find out that they battery actually did explode somehow.

  • malq

    I am glad he had a mod in progress that caused this. I was wondering if a tiny e-cig could do this, what would happen to all the womenz vaginas when their vibrator explodes?  The whole block would be taken out.
    Especially the older styles like Gee uses. Pull start diesel powered and no electronic fuel injection.

  • Andy P

    “dedicated to just reviewing the mods – some of which are the size of your mother’s dildo.”That’s fucking great Morbid.  

  • CT

    Why would this need to be modified?  What am I missing?  

    Wow, that has to really fuck up your teeth.  I have a thing for nice teeth so we will never have a future together now as a couple.  You how I am – that whole shallow CT thing.  Guess he is soon gonna be in the market for dentures.  

  • malq

     I read in another story, he did something to increase the vapor. How,..I do not know, but it was a fail.

  • CT

    Thank you .  I was actually being serious when I asked.   Damn. 

  • DemonDreamer85

    I guess he would have been better off just sticking to the real thing.

    If you are looking for something to explode in your mouth, there are much safer alternatives.

  • Gee

     wow… Way to put my shit out there! You are mistaking me for Obsolete.  My jack rabbit has never under gone any modifications. My hoo haa is well protected.  For the record I would never put anything in my mouth that has been modified  :o)~  other then soft to hard

  • Gee

     I hear Malq is very Mechanically inclined. You should discuss your butt plug mods with him as I understand he has experience with such devices :o)~

  • Gee

     ………and what would those alternatives be?

    ” an electronic cigarette blew up in his mouth”

    Well … that’s going to leave a scar.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Pop Rocks, duh.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    What exactly do these thing do anyway? Do they give you a tobacco fix? If so what’s the point of quitting then?

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    I like my alternatives better.

    ” Vietnam vet”

    I appreciate Vets so I am giving Mr.Holloway a pass on this ordeal.He served our country at a time of major conflict and has earned that much on something like this … I wish him the best,as well as a speedy recovery.

    Like you don’t already know.I just assisted my girlfriend with being much safer this morning before I left for work …

  • Gee

     *Gee bats eyelashes innocently*  Ced you are outa control LMAO

  • newstarshipsmell

    Not if you define “herd” by teeth.

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    It’s been tested thousands of times, still no facial explosions. 

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    That’s right. They give you a nicotine fix without the chemicals and carcinogens associated with tobacco. 

  • newstarshipsmell

    You get nicotine without all the crap in cigarette smoke. And you can get away with “smoking” them in lots of places where you’d get into trouble for smoking a cigarette, due to the lack of smoke/odor.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=736546181 Michael Heldman

    Close your eyes and say ahhh.

  • malq

     Ouch,  I think we are even now my friend, until tomorrow…En garde
    Actually, I would fix Petes if he keeps writing stories. While you  swallow yours , my pride can be set on the shelf if I have personal gain.

  • malq

    When it explodes on you then you quit cold turkey.

    Being around people that use them, they make me feel sick.

    Welcome to Niceville

  • Josh

    Not those cuban cigars…. =)

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    They can.

  • Gee

     But I think the businesses would frown on the shrapnel flying around injuring others.
    Just sayin…

  • Josh

    Sweet as candy?

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Don’t I know it. Key West has two sex shops. I was in heaven. One was a handcraft leather shop and the other was a two story mega store. They had everything. I was a kid in a candy store.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XKMAEMPVJ5T2Y35HKYTNG7I6SY Cedric

     HA !!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XKMAEMPVJ5T2Y35HKYTNG7I6SY Cedric

     LOL

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    Back when I wanted to be a restaurant owner I wanted it to be somewhere in the Keys. All that fresh seafood and 2 stories of adult items…I may have to rethink my rethinking.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I am seriously in love with the place. If my boys didn’t have their hearts set on Seattle I’d consider moving there. It’s not cheap though. I don’t think I had a meal that cost less than fifty bucks per couple. So you know, good place for a restaurant if your food’s good. 
    I did check out some Key West real estate and it’s about 850,000 for a 1500 square foot home in old town. Which is small for a full time residence, but it would be nice to have a vacation home there.

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    It wouldn’t let me reply to the other one. LOL 

    Why Seattle if you don’t mind me asking? <= Not that there's anything wrong with that. ;-)

    Truthfully that's about what I figures a small place would go for there. Anytime there are tourists and water the prices skyrocket. 

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    They both like the Pacific Northwest. I don’t want to live in California. Portland is where 30-year-olds go to retire, so Washington seems like a good choice. I don’t have an opinion yet, which is why we’re going in October. I want to see the place before I decide I want to move there. 
    The writer wants to branch out into video game writing and there is a huge game industry in the area.

  • Athena

    October’s not a terrible time to come to Seattle (we have great fall/Halloween events in Oct.), but to truly fall in love with this city, I highly recommend just a couple months earlier.

    Portland’s awesome (more strip clubs per capita than any other major U.S. city), but you’re not allowed to pump your own gas there, which is weird.  Seattle’s strip clubs suck, but we are located a convenient 2.5 hours from Portland, so it’s no problem.  Oh, and, Seattle is absolutely gorgeous if you can stand the 8 months of drizzle. :P

    Anyway, it’s tradition that any Demonites coming to Seattle stop by my place for a good meal and some drinks.  Thus far, I have hosted a total of, let’s see… Nine… and none wound up in my freezer.  So, I expect you to do the same, young lady.  

  • Gee

     I can vouch for Athena. Some of the best food I had in Seattle. Her and her husband are just awesome people!  Good Times!

  • Josh

    I liked your other one cause you didn’t have much to say.

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    I prefer the alternatives over candy, yes.

  • PlaysWithBalls

    This is my new favorite saying.

  • PlaysWithBalls

    I like being safer too… Just sayin.

    BOOM!!!

    You can’t trust any battery like a copper top battery.
