    Hi all.
    Looking for some assistance in sourcing a new battery for my baby.
    I used the Dr. Prius app to test and came out with this score.

    I first got the POA80 code a few weeks ago and it'd come back every 4 - 5 days or so.
    Now it's down to every 2 days and once I got it three times in an hour.

    The car has 110,000km on the dash, but it's imported from Japan so I doubt that's the actual mileage.
    (If anyone knows how I can check that, please let me know)

    I've already reached out to Texas Hybrid Batteries based on feedback from another thread but I just want to get some ideas. I haven't heard from them as yet.

    My challenge is that I'm in Trinidad and Tobago so I'll need someone that's willing to ship to my freight forwarder. I have no challenges performing the change myself as I've recently dug in to clean the fan on my own and I do a lot of other things myself on the car.

    have you checked with 'newpriusbatteries.com'?

    as well, you might want to open yours up and clean up any corrosion to see if that helps

    I'll try cleaning up corrosion and see if that helps, thank you

    Apparently they're backordered by a month and they don't reply to emails, so you'd have to purchase early and hope you get it in time.

    Depending on the reader/software you use, I found "Travel Mileage After Battery Removed," which was the only hard data in the computer that proved my odometer was wrong. At the time, my odometer was about 19k miles, with brake/tire wear indicating ~80-90k miles total (according to the mechanic).

    Oh nice!
    I'll have to scan through iOS apps to see if I can find anything that can get me that information.
    I'm curious to see the true mileage of the car.
