Title: FIXATION OF ELECTROCHEMICAL CELLS IN A HOUSING OF A BATTERY MODULE
Abstract:
A battery module includes a housing and a base of the housing. The base includes at least two opposing partition support walls, a first external wall, and a second external wall that is substantially perpendicular to the first external wall. The base also includes two or more partitions extending between the at least two opposing partition support walls to define compartments within the base, wherein each of the two or more partitions extend in alignment with the first external wall and transverse to the second external wall. Further, each of the two or more partitions is coupled to at least one of the at least two opposing partition support walls via a corresponding movable connection configured to be movable between a first position angled away from the first external wall, and a second position angled toward the first external wall.
