    I don't suppose anyone would be willing to rent out their Prolong charger, would they? I live in the northern VA area.

    The Gen1 charger is different than the one used for Gen 2 and Gen 3.
    You would need to find another Gen 1 user.

    I think this is your best option. If you were local, you could borrow mine. But the prospect of packing it up and shipping it cross country to someone I don't know doesn't appeal to me. BTW, to use a "borrowed" grid charger, you need to buy and install a $150 harness. No cheap short cut on this. Sorry.

    Thanks, guys, I really appreciate the responses I've gotten over the last few weeks. I'm weighing my options as I need to get the car running asap at this point. Brian, thank you for that info, I didn't know I would also need a harness for it..

    Who's the other member from NOVA? And is it a gen 1 they need a charger for?

    A gen1 charger would work on a Gen2, but not vice versa.

    A gen1 charger is going to be more expensive than a Gen2.

    Gen1 charger runs at a higher voltage than a Gen2.

    As mentioned, you would each purchase your own harness. ~$150+tax and shipping

    Looking at Hybrid Automotive's site, Gen 1 charger is CO-P1
    ProlongĀ® Charger Only – Hybrid Automotive

    Gen 2 & 2 is CO-PR
    ProlongĀ® Charger Only – Hybrid Automotive

    @jeff652 could explain the differences. I know Gen 1 pack has more modules.

    Are you looking to possibly rent your Prolong charger out? My sister lives in Mechanicsville area of Richmond and I occasionally visit her. I live in the Southern Maryland area. I own a Gen 2, 2007 with 214,000. I need to do something with the battery soon or will lose it. I would love to keep it running for as long as possible! Disregard, realized you no longer are in Richmond, VA

    I am willing to rent my Prolong system. I am the San Diego area.

    I have 2 Prolong chargers and 1 automatic discharger for 2004-2015 Prius (non Plug In), 2012+ Prius V. Provide your own harness or I have 2 harnesses, one for Gen 2 Prius and one for Gen 3 Prius which can be installed temporarily for your reconditioning session.

    Private message me if you'd like to discuss further.
