Hi Duncan first of all for battery disposal the plastic ziploc bag method will work but when transporting to a local hardware store or even an auto parts store because they safely recycle batteries all the timetime. I know cause I am a woodworker who has replaced a few batteries for my cordless tools and phones. keep the vent blowing cold air to keep the temp inside you vehicle around 40-70 degrees other than that your fine. Now fumes from lithium ion batteries are toxic but a small amount like that won't kill you or harm you unless you inhale fumes from 8 lithium ion batteries then I guarantee you would end up in the hospital but just to insure you that you are fine here is thisthis.
