    My 2006 got the HV battery changed out at 200,500 miles. Replaced with a rebuilt battery about 5 1/2 months ago. So far I have put a little over 8000 miles on the my Gen2 since the rebuilt battery was installed. I check battery voltages with my Torque Pro app. All cells are within 2/10V of each other.

    PS Getting about 47 to 48mpg average in the NE winter (lots of 30 and 40 degree days).

    I have 2005 Prius with 365,000 miles still on original battery. The catalytic converter code P0420 is now appearing quite frequently and the car really cannot sit more than 2-3 days without use. After this kind of gap the battery drops to purple in very little time and is in early stages of failure. But I am managing by having the car used very regularly, even having a friend drive when I am on vacation.

    Prolong might possibly help. But I have not as yet done that since car would not pass inspection anyway.

    250K miles on a 2007 with original battery...

    For many, many years it had all the signs of being a "dying" battery and I'm so glad I didn't believe all the ignorant annoying wasteful people on PriusChat who think the only solution is a brand new pack...

    Truth is I spent less than a hundred dollars on new bus bars and nuts and then did three rounds of deep cycling/reconditioning, which restored battery capacity from 50% back up to 96% and all symptoms of "dying" battery have been gone for a year and car runs like a champ.

    Enclosed is a copy of spreadsheet for that pack. I make spreadsheets for all the packs I work on in order to better be able to find failing modules before they fail.

    My green 2006 Prius blew a cell at 159k last year. A single module was replaced and battery rebalanced. My red Prius still on original battery at 142k.

    247k on a 2005. But it appears to be dying. I'm trying to figure out the next step.

    All packs are different in how they fail.
    Glad yours worked out with minimal intervention.
