2004-2009 TOYOTA PRIUS HYBRID BATTERY
The Toyota Prius Hybrid Battery is made up of 28 individual small batteries called modules, aka cells. Over time these cells develop a memory loss due to the battery's chemistry, nickel-metal hydride (Nimh). The Reconditioning Process, is the process used to wake these batteries back up in order for them to "remember" their true capacity. This process is a delicate one, and while some big profit hungry companies might try and hurry the process up, we make sure to take it slow with these little 7.2 volt batteries as to not cause them too much strain during this process. Running through the process too quickly can overheat, and swell these small cells up, and the result is a shorter life span for the cell. We make sure to give the cell a slow reconditioning process to make sure the process is as thorogh and painless as possible for the cell, as well as assuring the best possible capacity for the cell. We even play classical music for them during the process. No kidding.
Aside from perfecting the reconditioning process, we leave no stone unturned, by cleaning each individual terminal of each cell (2 terminals per cell) and installing shiny new bus bar, or terminal connectors. All voltage sensors are cleaned, and any faulty parts on the battery are replaced. The battery is then tested, and then when we install the battery in your car, we clean the fan to ensure the best possible cooiling for our prized cells.
