Since latent heat is not sensible, it seems like it would be useful in creating an efficient battery. Sensible heat interferes with electron flow in standard lead-acid and other batteries. The latent heat-electron interface might occur separately from the energy storage. Has this idea been explored?

Of course, I may be incorrectly assuming that latent heat does not itself add resistance to an electric circuit...
