A lot of good discussion here on the VOLT system and potential work arounds to further protect the battery on hot days.
My question is, does anyone know how slow/fast does the well insulated battery temp rise when parked on a 100 degree day (or other known temp) in an open parking lot? I think if someone had that sort of data or knowledge it would help owners better understand if parking a VOLT with a SOC <75% and not able to be plugged-in has any danger from heat. I would guess that the store run of maybe parking for an hour in 100 degree weather is not going to elevate the battery temp to a harmful level? But I am not sure.
Any of the experts here able to comment?
