    They aren't responding to an email via their CONTACT US box.

    Question: Anyone know why they'd charge more for online than retail?

    Retail represents a higher overhead - so online is 99% of the time cheaper.

    Retail price 449 $ 00

    Your cost 469 $00
    + Shipping

    not sure they have retail, maybe just recent inflation?

    OK, from the source, about $400. new with warranty for our 2008 - found at hybridautomotive on the prolong-battery-charger page. Plus, a little over $100. for a cable harness to share between our 2011 and 2012 ... should we decide to go that way. The basic discharge kit is just a couple of light bulbs - though they offer a more sophisticated alternative. Good stuff all around.
