1-1:  What battery should I chose

According to IEC60598-2-22:2014 


Question 1: The Li-ion battery is ECO-Friendly,  cheaper,  higher energy density.  Why do not chose it?

Meanwhile, The Li-ion battery is not reliable in high temperature/Fire.

If the building catches the fire. The Ni-Cd battery, Ni-MH battery will die quietly. How every Li-ion may explode and become the fire source. (Take the Samsung Note 7 as example )
