Kit, I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't make mistakes -- even experts. However, it is possible to arrive at reasonably accurate conclusions by doing a lot of research and homework. I'm far from an expert, but I have probably done more reading on the subject than most in this forum. The only reference I've found to lithium metal existing in Li-poly or Li-ion cells is the possibility of a slight plating out of lithium metal due to overcharging a cell. This would normally be less than a gram, which could provide an ignition source, but in itself would not cause a large conflagration.

If you have better information, please feel free to share it.
