E-cigs new vector for malware: reports
Now e-cigarettes can give you malware (Guardian)
E-cigarettes may be better for your health than normal ones, but spare a thought for your poor computer – electronic cigarettes have become the latest vector for malicious software, according to online reports.
Many e-cigarettes can be charged over USB, either with a special cable, or by plugging the cigarette itself directly into a USB port. That might be a USB port plugged into a wall socket or the port on a computer – but, if so, that means that a cheap e-cigarette from an untrustworthy supplier gains physical access to a device.

Bumping 'cause I know there's been much interest expressed in this product, and I wouldn't want anyone to get zapped.
