Lithium-ion batteries are not inherently unsafe. If used/charged improperly, they can be.

As a consumer device, they tend to be very forgiving.

One of the first uses of lithium-ion batteries are for medical implants, such as pacemakers and defibrillators. I could find only a handful of cases where some poor patient's chest exploded because of a faulty battery/charger.
