lithium batteries-dangerous?

Found this article on a different message board. It's about the dangers of rechargable lithium batteries.

http://www.airaccidentdigest.com/0607_story4.html

I'm picturing this sort of incident with a battery stored somewhere in a locker on board. Unsettling, and something to consider.

The Dell laptop with Sony battery fires are pretty well documented.

And what about this guy's iPod that caught fire.

He did have a rocket in his pocket.
