Now this one has me baffled... Every rechargeable device I can think of has lithium batteries. My laptop, cell phone. cordless drill, and the list goes on. These are fine to keep in the house or in a bag, and recharge unattended over and over again.
So why are flashlights so dangerous to charge that you need a fireproof container and watch them the whole time? (Let's just say the 2 common batteries RCR123 and 18650)
I ask this because I have not gone the rechargeable rout yet. The dangers just don't seem worth it. Am I wrong? With AA batteries I would never even think of buying a Duracell... NiMh all the way. They're always on the charger.
I look forward to your replies!
