Note that the bottom cell is bloated, and the separators have a burned color.

AFAIK they are not pouch cells. Pouch cells have polymer separator; hence they are called LiPo. Because of the rigidity of the polymer separator, LiPo doesn't need the extra casing. (LiPo is NOT a battery chemistry, but a type. LiFePO4 can be LiPo).

So the prismatics should have "liquid" electrolyte, just like the cylindrical cells, and hence they need the case.

Correct me if wrong.
