    Prolong Charger + Simple Discharger Kit
    Originally purchased for $480. Never used - completely new condition.
    Always kept indoors / safe with lots of TLC.
    I would hold onto this longer but I'm selling to raise some extra money (new baby on the way and I'm in school full-time).
    Will ship for $400

    Thanks for your comment, the wiring harness and power cable are all in there. I forgot to mention that I also fully guarantee it's high quality and that it works. If any problems, please do let me know and full refund. I really like Jeff's bombproof style that he built these box shaped chargers with.

    The new charger and Intelligent Discharger for phase 2 of Hybrid Automotive launch is even better:).

    Much less babysitting and less risk of overshooting the end point during a discharge session ;).

    Could you elaborate more on why it is better? For the charger, are they about the same or is the newer version better too?

    Also, how does this older model by hybrid automotive compare to this charger on ebay (besides the obvious that the discharger isn't included) "
    2004-2009 Toyota Prius Hybrid EL-1 Traction Battery Grid Charger Balancer USA!"

    The charger seems to be the same, but only Jeff who built them can comment on that. I think Jeff changed the design for a quality product but cheaper manufacturing, but I don't want to put words into his mouth. The charger is very solid which is probably better than the newer ones as it's not plastic, but again I don't really know -- I just know that it feels very solid and sturdy. I don't know of any products on ebay, so I can't comment on that. As far as the discharger is concerned, the intelligent discharger is better because you don't have to monitor the discharge state as you would with the lightbulb discharger. That allows a "set it and forget it" attitude when dealing with discharging which is a great feature to have.

    The charger is functional identical to our newer "space ship" style units. Only difference is the newer ones have a power switch where these early ones power on as soon as they are plugged in.

    The Prolong Discharger (new incarnation of the intelligent discharger) is nicer than the light bulbs, because it automatically tapers current and shuts itself off when done, but understandable it costs more - adding around $200 to the overall package price.

    Will you have a Gen 4 NiMH harness available for me when I need it a few years from now? ;)

    We need to get a car to fit the harness on, but yes this is on our product road map along with the RAV4 and Corolla Hybrid.

    Let me know if you need someone to dry fit on;).

    I know a “courier” that is down your way some weekends:).

    Might be a way to make it work(y).
