The problem (other than the possibility of explosions) is that the posative terminal is usually made of aluminium and is impossible to solder (from my experience). The only way to connect a wire is to spot weld it on

If you do start a lithium fire don't be surprised if water doesn't put it out.  Sand bucket is best.

Depends on a battery, I've soldered ones - got 7.4V Li-Po for unknown camera with 3 contact pads. All works well, but you need to do it fast.
  Picture, unfortunately, pads not visible, didn't think to make instractables -):
