"If you try to make a vehicle-sized cylindrical cell, you will need electrodes up to 10 meters in length that are difficult to wind on a central spindle. Also, the heat generated from the center of cell would have to travel through nearly 100 layers of electrode, creating a big temperature gradient between the center and the outer layer of the cell." Heat in the Compact Power laminate package, on the other hand, only has 16-20 layers to travel through, lowering the heat gradient by a factor of four, according to Patil.
