Default battery question

Wang - I received my Wgrill yesterday. It arrived perfectly wrapped and undamaged, thanks!!

I noticed in the instructions you stressed an unprotected li-ion 14500 battery. I've read a tremendous amount about the li-ion batteries and have a question. Will a protected battery work? There seems to be a fair amount of talk about managing li-ion batteries and the risk for gassing and fire if the batteries aren't properly managed during the charging process. Does your circuitry manage this and will it manage with a protected battery cell.

Additioanally it appears that the protected batteries are more readily available.
