    A bit of a bummer. Wonder if there's liquid cooling involved a la the Model S battery pack?!

    More info on their batteries here: http://www.solarimpulse.com/infocard-Batteries The fourth photo shows them winching a battery pack. Doesn't really talk about temperature control except that they insulated them to keep them from getting too cold.
