    Send a private message to @Britprius on here, which will reach him via his email inbox, unlike these threads. He owns a Lexus hybrid now and no longer participates in these forums, but he's in the UK and there's no one on here who knows more about batteries than him, especially when it comes to buying the very best 12v in the UK.

    He usually replies within a day or two but doesn't waste time with follow up questions, so make sure you get all your most important questions in the very first message...

    both really. There is a range of prices with the toyota part in the middle of them. On previous cars (non hybrids) ive usually opted for a €70 Bosch. Im just wondering what the best route is with the Prius.
    Thank you
