RE: 18650 explosion
Inhaled hydroflouric acid is pretty much a guaranteed trip to the morgue, so yeaaahh - safety first.

I also "marry" my battery pairs, and i will buy sets in different colors; i.e., LG brown, Sony VTC's in their flat green, Brillipower (rewrapped Sony's I believe) in their pale green, IMRENS in violent purple.  They get charged together, they get used together, and they NEVER get mixed and matched.  Does this matter?  Maybe, maybe not - but as warm as these puppies can get with even "proper" use in a regulated Sigelei above .2 ohms, I'm not taking any chances.

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

RE: 18650 explosion
I really think it should be required that vape shops, when selling certain things (IE batteries, mechs, hybrids, etc,) ask if you know the dangers, safety, etc regarding mechs, hybrid tops, or batteries. maybe a quick sheet that explains the dangers and precautions should be signed stating 'I am aware of the dangers of this and blah blah I have refused a quick lesson in battery safety or I got a lesson, etc etc' something that will make people think twice before stepping into unregulated territory. Alot of B&Ms have sold mechs or hybrids to people that didnt know the first thing about ohms law. ive even heard of a place selling a hybrid-type topcap mod with a tank that ended up shorting the battery bc it wasnt made for those types... I will say tho, from local personal experience, alot of places DO make sure you know at very least the basics

I have been to 6 area B&M's, a couple frequently, and not a single one of them mentioned anything at all about safety. Sure, that's a small sample size, but it's probably a good indicator. No one mention of cell safety, best practices, nada. They either assume you know what you're doing or don't care to ask.

On the other hand, nearly every B&M near me has posters and handouts with information about cell safety and all kinds of other useful information. I think a lot of it just depends on the area. I don't know whether more shops are competent or negligent. I've seen a lot of each.
