A Danish man, Jørgen Mouritzen, was severely burned by his Apple Watch, or so he would have us believe. Apple has investigated, and claims no wrongdoing on the part of their watch. Comments by readers of the linked article run the gamut, with one man claiming that the reported burns are indeed possible, and that he is confident that he "can cause more serious burns with a pair of AA batteries."

And not a hair singed?
But seriously, Li-ion can produce incredible flames with little or no notice. I own several high performance flashlights that use li-ion and they can do horrible things from what I've read.
Still, how many phones, laptops, etc. use this battery chemistry all around the world?
I too call BS on it.
