    Has anybody here had a purchase experience with Hybrid2Go lifetime warranty traction batteries? I searched for this company on Prius Chat, but nothing found.

    you're smart to do your due diligence. the biggest problem with these reconditioning companies is warranty follow up, especially when they won't come out, and have no location you can drive to with smith and wesson.

    What seems to be the current issue, and do you have any OBD2 codes worth posting here?

    Looked at the prices they are charging for USED batteries, best to go with the new OEM or the new aftermarket NiMH / Lithium options.

    My 2nd gen needs a new battery. I've been doing a mix of buying used reconditioned cells, or reconditioning my own and matching to get short term traction battery revival. I'm pretty quick at getting the battery in and out of the car but the module wack-a-mole is getting tiresome. How much are the OEM batteries? Does Toyota sell the complete battery or just the cells? I thought the OEM batteries were like $4K. Also, where do I find lithium ion replacement cells? I thought they were still in testing and development and not yet in production for our old Priuses.

    Yeah, I would really like to know the physical address of these places in case asses need to be kicked.;-)) Getting them to come out shouldn't be a problem. Just pretend to be a new customer and they show up with a battery. But when these fly-by-night companies reorganize under new names, they are lost to former customers forever. Do you know if any of the remanufactured artery companies actually have a good reputation?

    Toyota hybrid battery upgrade pack – NexPower Energy (projectlithium.com)
    in the youtube comments this one is great but one guy's failed a month after the 2 year warranty. (looks like they might be designed to just get you past the warranty, but that is the only case that I have seen. This one is $1950

    NewPriusBatteries
    These ones have great reviews, but they are sold out until late january next year and always sell out when the new shipments come in. this one is $1600 (no tax and you keep your old cells to do as you please)

    To get an OEM one look around on the toyota parts department for dealerships in your area. some have their online stores selling the hybrid battery. Or call around the different dealerships. They range between $1600-2250 after your core is returned

    post a review on which one you decide and any tips as I will be going through this in the future (still original hv battery)

    there are a few threads here on companies like greenbean. they seem to get pretty good reviews, but i haven't followed closely.
    one to watch out for is falcon, iirc.

    Odd, thought retail sales started about a year ago, and general beta testing was still under 2 years ago.

    Thank you, Bisco. I think the Greenbean new cell battery might be my best option.

    Thanks for the information. Can't wait until 2022 so I'll choose from the other options you have provided. So fare, the $1750 Greenbean with new cells may be in the lead.

    Just to clarify, those 'cells' (modules) are not new, they are "USED". Please don't waste 1750 on a USED battery.

    Hey brother. Hybrid2go is my company. I’ve been building batteries for another large company here in California and went my own route recently.

    I’m sure @ericbecky will have no problem vouching for me/us if you need to ask.

    I’m not going anywhere and we are more than busy. Matter of fact I’ll give you a replacement battery for free if you want to see how it holds up, just for a case study. Been doing this a while now. PM if you need me. -Cole H2G

    We are on the road 3-4 days a week. We are based out of the central coast and will come to you unless you want to take a road trip. 74 degree winters aren’t half bad.

    Cole is right. I have no problem 100% vouching for his company. Cole and his crew are knowledgeable, honest, and hard-working.

    He's put the time effort and capital investment into making a great company.

    I visited his shop last year out in California and help link him up with some of my contacts on the industry. He and I have known each other for years and he was working on expanding his business. The reality is though, Cole already has a breadth and depth of knowledge on many hybrids. He does batteries for just about everything. Certainly more than I have dealt with.

    His dedication and tenacity to provide a good product to his customers is far above the level I see from other companies. More of them should emulate him as far as I'm concerned.
