    After a little research:

    Lower safe discharge rate... generally 1-3C TOPS
    -because they can't tolerate high discharge rates they're more likely to flame out
    More violent when they overheat and pop
    REQUIRE a hard case
    Not easy to conform to different shapes
    Due to the voltage sensitivity of the cells, each cell must have its own voltage regulator built in
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
