Nitecore is an established good and reliable brand. Chargers, flashlights and batteries.
But using a charger building 100-240 volts is not safe?

Xtar makes many LiIon chargers, this is a usb powered quad channel charger with display. The charger can charge with up to 1A for two channels or 0.5A for four channels, actual current depends on slots used and available usb power. It supports both NiMH and LiIon cells.

Nitecore isn’t a battery manufacturer, but I think they use quality Panasonic/Sanyo cells under their nitecore printed wrappers
Nitecore are generally safe and quite high quality. That is as long as you get a genuine product, there are some fakes out there.
100-240v will be the input voltage range of the charger. Output to the battery will be below 5v, with cut-off for the battery at around 4.2v fully charged.

If you’re so very concerning about safety, my advise is please stay away from Li-Ion battery.
Alternative? use Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) rechargeable battery, purchase reputable brand/manufacturer such as Panasonic/Sanyo Eneloop, which I think is the best, and yes, don’t worry, it is very safe & easy to handle.
For charging battery, use original Panasonic battery charger that comes with the battery, stay away from unknown brand and you’ll be fine.
Lastly, if you’re also into flashlight, many reputable brands have Ni-MH powered flashlight too.
