    Get a proper intelligent charger & batteries with protection circuitry in them. This is no absolute guarantee of course, but it goes a long way.

    I left one on charge in the kitchen when i got home the kitchen was covered in black soot and bits of battery, i was very lucky it exploded and never set on fire otherwise it would have burnt the house down.
