    Gen.2 Hybrid batteries have not been available for months.

    Do you mean 2010-2015 Gen 3 packs? Those modules will work fine. 2016 begins Gen 4 which is mostly Lithium except that Gen 4 modules from early trim 2 (2016-2019, iirc) are NiMH as are the ones in the AWDe models. All those can be transplanted as a set to a Gen 2 battery case.

    Yes corrected.

    Search on car-part.com for 2022 Corolla hybrid shows many salvage batteries that are NiMH, also 2021 Prius NiMh also shown, have to be certain the batteries are NiMH, not certain if these NiMH are compatible with Gen 2 NiMH.

    2 versions of 2022 Corolla Hybrid NiMh, plus a Li-Ion Version. 28 module NiMH and a 30 module NiMH

    Less than a week left to buy a Project Lithium pack via a last small shipment that was stuck in a chinese port during their Spring Covid lockdowns. Once those packs are gone you're looking at November for Project Lithium supply chain to return to normal.

    That's odd. I checked there a week or two ago and everything was sold out. Browser glitch or were there some hiding in the back room?

    Yeah... He was sold out then... And I guess the last shipment that was stuck at the port in China was small enough that he didn't really consider it a legit full shipment, just some extra packs. Clock is ticking though A little over a week ago he estimated he'd be sold out again in 2 weeks.

    I have never seen so much spam from this user trying to get affiliate commission on the lithium pack

    Lol, it's not Spam. Look up the definition of spam... I only share if it's relevant/helpful and in less than a week there will be no more packs for sale till November so you won't see my affiliate link messages again until then.

    My main purpose on PriusChat is to help people, not to make money. If you click on my profile and click "ignore" you don't have to see any of my posts again.
