Do LiPo batteries generate enough heat to need cooling if mounted inside a protective enclosure? If so, would passive cooling be adequate or should I incorporate a small cooling fan?
Do they swell at all or can you place multiple LiPo’s right next to each other? I am considering lining the battery enclosure with fireproof material or an off-the-shelf LiPo safe, but if cooling is required, all this extra insulation would make any potential cooling issues worse.
For reference, I have four of these batteries (6S, 1550 mAh, 65C): http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/_59293__Turnigy_nano_tech_1550mah_6S_65_130C_Lipo_Pack_450L_Heli_AR_Warehouse.html
