Which is why research is going into batteries beyond lithium.

Doesn't matter. If you pack a lot of energy into a small space, you have to carefully and rigidly limit how fast the energy can come out of that space under all plausible conditions - otherwise you have at least a fire hazard and possibly an explosive.

Exactly how you manage to pack so much energy into such a small space, doesn't affect that basic truth. (It may affect how hard it is to enforce the needed limit.)
