If someone's willing to 3D print some air channels, you could potentially DC charge with the HVAC on, and have cold air routed along the central column to the battery air inlets - I guess could test with some vacuum hoses (would be noisy though at least during the testing). Since from videos I've seen (Bjorn Nyland where he goes to the workshop to look at a Soul battery), it seems that the batteries closest to the inlet are the ones that heat up the most; and Ukrainian repair shop also seemed to show (via translation) that the front two stacks of cells heat up a bit more than the ones in the back) - it may be effective if we push cold filtered air into the battery.
