And even if these thermal-based safety precautions don’t kick in, you won’t see a thermal runaway (fire) because batteries cannot heat themselves up by a few hundred degrees Celsius under normal operations. A battery with a bad thermal design will experience a temperature rise of ~30°C above ambient.
