Battery Temperature

Does the battery have a temperature sensor?
If so then why is it not readable by software?
If not why not and is it possible to add one?

Just curious why would you want one?

How deep do you want to go?

First time seeing it, definetly worth the watch lol. Feynman was great.

The battery won’t charge if too hot so it definitely has a sensor. The problem is how to read it

But yeah, laptop batteries normally have a ntc temperature sensor, just for safety. Most multi-cell li-ion packs which have an attached BMS will have one.
