I have not experience any exploding battery but i have had problems with leaking, swollen batteries that reduce their lifetime tremendously. I think the lack of general knowledge or guidelines make the usage very difficult for average user. Most of the time there are labels that warn about the potential hazards of the battery but do not specify how to protect the batteries for longer life and safe use.

Why is it that difficult to come up with a common cell-balancing standard?

Still kind of a mess, but better than 7 years ago when recalls were rampant -- The IEEE standard does not specify cell ballancing, nor do any of the other standards -- when dealing with a multi-cell pack -- and none of them have a test / standard such that short circuit energy is limited to less than that required to ignite ether(may be really hard to make reliable)
