Lithium batteries possible fire hazard
Should I be concerned about the lithium batteries inside my cameras, cell phone, and mp3 players? Could they start a home fire?
"Unlike other kinds of batteries, some lithium batteries contain metal that will spontaneously ignite if exposed to air. Also, the positive and negative poles in some lithium batteries are close together, leading more easily to short circuiting, which can cause a fire."
