They require a bit of common sense, but also you have to be careful animals can't chew them (dogs OR rodents), you don't drop them or knock them hard, leave them in a warm place (Arizona sun) ect.

The explosion from a very small 200 mah battery can be spectacular and deadly. The ensuing fire as bad or worse. Be careful

Very true of any Lithium rechargeable cells. I have seen a few Lithium Ion on the surplus market, bare, no fuse, no charging controller or temperature shut down. I would not touch them with a 10' pole. The Sony Li-Ion plant burned to the ground 15 years ago? As Wikipedia said, the electrolyte in these is flammable. We all can remember the cell phones that burned some users. Also some Laptop batteries had to be recalled.

These are not toys as Bikeguy Joe advised.
