"until either there is a better battery technology with the same energy density"

One wonders if it's less the chemical composition and more the very energy density we week from them? If so, then no design we can make will ever make it safe because the very thing we desire is what makes it dangerous. Sort of like having access to fire.

"or manufacturers build better containment into their devices"

Some things can't hope to be contained. Like bombs or anything with that kind of explosive potential. Heck, even a closed container left in the sun has that potential.
