    Hey Gang. Now that I have your attention. I just picked up and installed a battery from a salvage yard that was installed about 2 years ago by the previous owner. I did have to drive 2 hours each way to get the battery but it was well worth it. I've been searching for quite awhile to find a used replaced battery. It was $500.00. Then another drive to return the core and get my core charge back. If you go down this road and I suggest you do make sure they send you a picture of the battery so can see the cover, The replacements have a bunch of stickers on them and the originals don't. Now my battery graph is not going from charged to really low very quickly. I put a photo so you know what to look for. Another yard said they had a recent battery but the picture they sent me showed they were wrong. The old owner told them that to get more money at the yard. They got hosed. I am now a happy more relaxed Prius owner.

    Nice find. That pack was assembled in July 2017.

    Is it the Assembly No G9510-47031 that tells you that? Nothing else in any of the labels is very legible.

    I believe it's the serial number, H117UAL5003A. (Or is it H717... that would make more sense, I guess)

    Core charge was 250. If it was 100 I would have kept it to tear it apart. So bottom line was 546ish. Sales tax on the 500. Sucked driving 4 hours twice but I'm retired and my brother went with me. We bickered the whole time. Kept us amused. About 3 hours in 21 degree temps to install. Well worth it. Now I still worry the brake system will fail at some point.

    For case cover serial numbers...
    H117U
    H=Prius
    11=day of month
    7=July
    U=2017

    For individual modules, the U would be 2019, so most likely the module serial numbers are May or June of 2017 so they would have an S code

    can you point me to how to read the serial number? I’m trying to determine the year of manufacturer for serial #2345K14711008c150437

    It looks like the serial coding has changed. The s/n used to be 12 chars long, but this one is 20 char long.

    Maybe @TMR-JWAP, @strawbrad or @JC91006 who do a lot with batteries have seen this format before and know how to decode them.
