leakage/corrosion from lithium batteries?

Hey all,

How notorious are lithium batteries for leakage or other problems that can lead to potential damage? I have three beloved Voyagers that I use only occasionally, and I'm doing a risk-assessment for keeping them battery-loaded or not.

(I've never experienced corrosion/leakage of lithium batteries myself, but I also use them less frequently than alkaline batteries, so I'm allowing for the possibility of a sampling bias.)

Any input would be appreciated.
