Well if your battery is like 10C above ambient, blowing air onto it would speed up cooling, but that only helps when
stationary and no charging/discharging/AC happens. And it's actually pointless.
Temperatures vary as much as 25*C between night and day.
Why would cooling the battery be pointless? Apparently the battery temp hovers around 25-30C. So when it's 3 or 5*C and the battery is 25*C or hotter I'd think it would help. Possibly.
