YouTuber Saundezy opens disposable HQD vape to see inside as Kerry Chant takes on e-cigarettes

A YouTube video star has revealed the dangers lurking in disposable vapes as teens continue the unhealthy craze and top doctors warn of its deadly consequences.

Sydney-born scooter superstar Kai Saunders posted a special video to his popular YouTube channel showing what’s in cheap and widely available e-cigarettes.

He ripped apart two different vapes to reveal that the gadgets were filled with potentially dangerous batteries and wires, scorched cotton wool soaked in chemicals, and pipes clogged with ash-like residue.

‘Oh God! Look how dirty that is,” he said in the video.

“A lot of this shit would be in your lungs. A lot of it would end up in your lungs.”

NSW recently declared war on vaping, with more than $1 million worth of illegal vaping and nicotine-laced vape juice seized in the state since January.

‘The harmful effects of vaping on young people cannot be underestimated,’ warned NSW chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant.

“People think they’re just flavored water, but in reality, in many cases, they ingest toxic chemicals that can cause life-threatening injuries.”

Vapes and vape liquids with nicotine in them have only been available on prescription since October, but the change in law hasn’t stopped smaller tobacconists and general stores from selling them.

And it is often specifically aimed at the youth market.

“Among many young people, e-cigarettes or vaping are considered safe and certainly safer than cigarettes,” said NSW Acting Chief Health Officer Marianne Gale.

People often view vapes as harmless because of their sweet or fruity flavors, attractive packaging, and their ‘vapor’, which is often perceived as water.

But the video of Saunders, 22 – known as Saundezy – lifted the lid on shonky disposable vapes.

“It started in America, where I know it was a big problem, and now it’s made its way to Australia in recent months,” Saundezy said.

Now every teenager and their dog is literally smoking these disposable vapes. They are actually very bad for you.

“You might think they’re just cool, they’re fun – you get a little nicotine, it’s all fun and games, … it’s just not harmful – but it is and you don’t know it until it’s too much leave.’

The Australian Health Department found that vapes contain cancer-causing chemicals such as formaldehyde (used to preserve dead bodies), acetaldehyde (used to make wood glue) and acrolein, which is used as a weed killer.

Other chemicals were discovered that also cause DNA damage.

Each vape contains bulky batteries that either contain potentially lethal battery acid if damaged and then inhaled, or lithium-ion batteries that can catch fire or even explode if punctured.

Thin wires connect them to a heating element that scorches a wad of cotton wool soaked in chemicals, causing it to boil and turn into burning gas that is then inhaled.

Despite not producing the tar of normal cigarettes, researchers believe vaping is still linked to a increased risk of lung disease, heart disease and cancer.

“If you smoke nicotine in a vape, it’s all bad,” Saundezy said in his video.

“If you don’t smoke cigarettes, don’t pick up a vape and start smoking it.”

He admitted he was now addicted to vaping, having picked up the habit like many of his followers.

“I’m actually quite addicted,” he said.

“I’d say 60 or 70 percent of my viewers are probably on these vapes or have tried them in the past.

“If you want to be an athlete, you want your body to stay in top shape. This isn’t the way to do it, guys.’

He said he shot the video to find out what caused the smoke to come out of the gadgets and into his lungs.

“I think it would be really interesting to see what’s in these little disposable vapes,” he said.

“We want to know what goes into your lungs, creates the smoke that you take in your body, and things like that.”

But he was shocked by what he found with generic batteries, loose wires and the soggy cotton wool that often delivered a mouthful of raw chemical liquid to users.

Unrolling the cotton wool revealed scorch marks on areas of it where the heated central coil had scorched the material.

And breaking open the pipeline to the nozzle revealed a sooty, dusty residue covering the tube.

He said the smell of the chemicals was overwhelming when he took apart two separate disposable vapes.

“You literally suck through battery juice and vape juice with nicotine in it through this dirty little coil,” he said in the video.

“It’s not worth the risks. Hopefully you’re surprised, because this stuff is really nasty.’

He added: “I’m sure many of you have been told the dangers of disposable vapes.

“But I really hope that when you hear from me and see us break them open and show what’s inside, you can open your eyes a little bit more

“And you might reconsider your decision to smoke these disposable vapes.”
