IMO, cooling these packs would only make sense if each cell was cooled. Simply cooling the outer cells works on a 2s1p pack, but for anything else, the inner cells would heat up. Maybe if they added an aluminum plate (at least 1/16" thick) between each cell that had coolant tubes outside the pack?

But yeah, water cooling packs to maintain tolerable temps is a band-aid at best. Similar to how I feel about fans in R/C use.

But like Lutach said, lipos are fairly temperature sensitive. Too cold and they run like crap. Too hot and the life is shortened. Much easier to use a proper pack for the application.
