Title: BATTERY MODULE WITH HEAT DISSIPATING ENCAPSULANT MATERIAL AND METHODS THEREFOR
Abstract:
Disclosed herein, is a battery module that comprises an encapsulant material exhibiting improved thermal transfer and heat dissipation characteristics. In one example embodiment, the battery module comprises a "stack" of cells, wherein at least some of the cells, and optionally each cell, is not separated by a metal plate or tab-shaped heat sink layer, and instead, the cells are substantially surrounded by an encapsulant material and stacked directly upon one another.
