Cooling systems and connections of battery cells play a crucial role in the design and development of a modular battery storage system. This dissertation presents a novel concept in which battery cells with improved cooling systems are easy to assemble. In the battery cell, a liquid cooling channel is installed, which can remove heat from the inside of the battery cell to the environment. The battery cells consist of the cooling channel, the cooling connector, the electrical connector and the housing connector. They can be easy plugged together for a large battery pack. All connections can be connected at the same time called "One click, all connection". This concept allows a very modular design of the battery packs and can significantly reduce the complexity and errors in the installation of the battery storage.
