Testing batteries without burning down house

Don't most chargers test internal resistance? I know for a fact that my Zanflare C4 checks capacity. It's pretty simple to test.
Many chargers test internal resistance, but few are accurate.
There have been a few discussions on the merits of different chargers concerning internal resistance tests and a few videos

On that note i test 24/7 but not in my house. Thats just how i make it safe. I do the test in a building where noone sleeps.

Is there a tester that has temperature monitoring in-place to protect against overheating? Has anyone ever had a situation where the battery exploded while using a LiitoKala Lii-500?
its still in production stage but it stops charging if the cell becomes hot

If a cell goes nuclear inside the grill, the grill would keep the thermal event contained
Then chuck a steak on.
