An ancient BTM with PCM was controlled through the issues of high inflexibility of phase change material, leakage problems and very low conductivity in thermal energy. This research paper reports a facile batter thermal management and creativity along with induced non-rigid phase change material composites. This battery model can be determined by the flexible phase change material composites along with an intervention due to the recovery in shape and non-rigidity of flexible phase change components. This assemble was modeled to be efficient and compact without any requirement for grease. A constant state reveals various stages of phase change material which has various properties in thermal efficiency. A unified state was linked with the recovery shape of flexible phase change components which can cause a low resistance in FCPCM and battery. Battery thermal management demonstrates the perfect process of thermal control power. If the battery was discharged from 90 to 10% of charge, then the temperature of flexible phase change components depends upon battery thermal management. It was 44.5°C during the 3.5°C rate which was 29.8°C lower than no phase change material. It also reveals low-temperature oscillation inside the long-time process and range of heat of recovered phase change material. The performance of battery thermal management and its flexibility will give perceptions of passive battery thermal management systems.
