Battery doesn't look so weird when the rest of the fuselage is shown. Has the advantage of having its mass as far forward as possible, and anchored to a very solid firewall surface.

In any case, it's kind of amusing to be discussing the looks of a profile plane. I mean, they look strange from the get-go. We'll see how CG works out with both arrangements.
