It's all about thermal management. Liquid cooled batteries last. Passive or air cooled battery don't do nearly as well. The Volt battery is also long lasting.

OK how about we put a pack of nimh stock sticks in an oil bath/container.

Would you need a circulating pump, big heatsink and fan on top of the oil filled aluminium box, or nothing?

Would the heat inside the box from the cell/sticks pool/hot spot or sort/spread itself out?

1) Yes to pump and heat sink, but it wouldn't need to run all the time.

2) the fluid has much higher heat transfer ability. Slow flow with the existing baffles would likely minimize or even eliminate hot spots.

One issue i see with the 1st gen insight is at shutdown battery gets hotter. Maybe they should of ran the fan a while after shutdown when pack is over a certain temp. Of course that would drain your battery a bit.
