    I didn't think the cost was that high for the gen 1 and 2 I thought it was about 18 anyway that's a life po set up supposed to be pretty good

    Was going to buy this exact same setup but they're out of stock and no end in sight to the shortage

    I didn’t know the Gen 1 had a Lithium solution

    given the state’s taxation methods a Gen 1 Prius is the best model to own as you can drive registration free as opposed to paying hybrid penalties

    NiMH last a long time with high current they way it is handled by the Toyota system. Lithium at high current not as much.
    Now if they used Lithium Titanate it would outlast the car AND give high current.
    Given there is no EV mode for the gen1, I'd stick with the oem setup.
