The U.S. Navy is now taking preventive steps, including safety education events, to safeguard personnel, facilities, and military equipment from hazards of fires and explosions arising from thermal runaways in Lithium-based batteries used in e-cigarettes and personal vaping devices. Quoting from the article: “Navy officials point to a growing body of evidence of considerable personal injury risk or fire associated with the use, transport, and storage of these devices … Commander, Naval Sea Service System Command recently recommended to Commander, Naval Safety Center, that ‘based on known dangers, these lithium-battery powered devices have not been authorized for use, transport, or storage on Navy facilities, submarines, ships, vessels and aircraft’.”

Stutz, Naval Hospital Bremerton Public Affairs November 18, 2016, Bremerton, Washington (NNS) USA Excerpts: “But there were perils presented and dangers demonstrated on Nov. 17, 2016, as NHB [Navy Hospital Bremerton] focused on the very real and at times very severe hazards associated with e-cigarettes … ‘These are not insignificant injuries. There have been teeth lost. There has been skin grafting because of 2nd and 3rd degree burns. There have also been shrapnel wounds,’ Carrougher said … Seven of those incidents happened on a naval vessel, with two causing a fire that needed shipboard firefighting equipment to extinguish the flames … Two were battery explosions when the e-cig was actually in the service member’s mouth causing facial and dental injuries … Navy officials point to a growing body of evidence of considerable personal injury risk or fire associated with the use, transport, and storage of these devices …” http://www.militaryspot.com/news/e-cigarettes-burning-topic-naval-hospital-bremertons-great-american-smoke
