That's interesting. In particular I noted the comparison of the laminated battery vs. cylindrical battery in terms of temperature rise during discharge. Significant difference, and may take some of the air out of the argument that the Leaf's cooling design is inferior to Tesla's. Since the Tesla uses the cylindrical 18650 cells, it would appear they have more heat to deal with so liquid cooling may be necessary for them, but not for Leaf.AndyH wrote:...AESC is Nissan's joint battery company.
