Abstract : This invention relates to battery cells, and more particularly, to a process of attaching said cells into a module structure. According to the present invention, significant weight reduction and structural strengthening are achieved by potting individual cells into a module structure. In a preferred embodiment, three cells are grouped together in the module. The number of cells is not critical. To obtain a battery system several modules are electrically connected together in a desired manner. Basically, each cell case is positioned within a module case so that there is clearance between each case. Proper clearance is obtained by placing a plurality of spacers between the cases. A foam is then injected into the spaces between the cases. A foam is then injected into the spaces between the cases. After hardening, a cover is bonded over the exposed foam. Electrical and venting connection are attached to the appropriate points.
