Lithium AA Batteries for Flash... is the extra cost worth it?

I did some testing and experimenting with the non-Lithium AA batteries for my YN560 flash speedlight vs. Lithium AA batteries. And I honestly got more longer life span on the non-Lithium AA batteries and I got heat issues on the Lithium batteries oddly. The Lithium AA batteries I got tend to overheat a lot faster than my non-Lithium batteries. I did test it on the same output power of the flash which was the highest level. Now I'm not sure if it's the YN560 speedlight causing the issue or the actual batteries but I did have somewhat the same issues on my Canon 270EX which did last longer on batteries, but it caused more heat issues than the non-Lithium batteries. If this persists I'm going to have to invest into a product to extend the power for my flash speedlight.

I'll be posting this as a video question as soon as I get the chance.
