Same is true of lithium. The prohibited quantities are very high, something on the order 300 W-H total batteries, with no battery bigger than 100 W-H. That's 25 DSLR batteries, or 6 high-capacity laptop batteries.

Those size limits are for carry-on. Lithium batteries of any kind cannot be left in checked luggage unless installed in equipment. Spares must be in carry-on. This requirement is to allow the flight crew to quickly notice and handle any problems that might result.

Lithium ion batteries can become unstable and explode but most of the time that occurs during charging not storage. And most of those that have exploded were either after market batteries or after market chargers.

Everything you want to know about batteries.
