Yes, we don't know if your batteries are still good or bad, they may have survived the fire.

But still, you don't want to risk an explosion, it's just too dangerous after actually being on fire, they could even be leaking without you even knowing it.

Do you have pics of the carnage?

Well yes, I would rather not have my portable catch on fire, or be damaged by using these batteries again.

Those holes weren't always there...

*edit*
I multimetered them, and they still work, but I am not really sure if they are safe to use.

I like that Idea. But the batteries smell like death, so I don't think I am going to use them.
