I'm sure everyone has seen pictures of the fires that can be caused by the short circuiting of a conventional lithium battery.

Which is why research is going into batteries beyond lithium. This is a great documentary on where things are going. I saw it on Netflix but I think its not there anymore. Would be worth trying to find it to view:

As an example, they show someone actually cutting into a battery. Nailing a battery. Nothing bad happening. And with energy densities above lithium ion.

There is a lot of research going into the next battery because the potential pay-off is huge.
