If you have a smart charger and it let's you put a current through the massive battery, make sure you do it in an open area with ventilation.

I've 'accidentally' blown up NiCad's and alkalines before and some were messy. One that I remember was a 9v alkaline. It was burning hot after charging with an 'alkaline' charger (or so it claimed) so I left it in the middle of the kitchen table. Made a loud pop, that I could hear from upstairs, and it ended up a few feet from where I left it.
