If you're carrying large amounts of energy around in a small volume you have to know how to handle it so that it doesn't all go up at once.

We've got vastly more experience of handling hydrocarbons safely than we do of batteries whose technology changes every other week, but we still get petrol fires and gas explosions from time to time.
