    Well, that's a total non-answer to the question, but don't worry about it. I've accepted that an actual answer will not be provided..
    and now...
    You say you accidently drained the battery to 0 volts.
    The prolong chargers I've used pulse between 0 and 0.35 amps when at low voltage like that.
    You say it took the prolong charger only 10 minutes at a 0.35 amp charge rate (max) to recover the battery enough to start the car. Ten minutes at 0.35 amps....What is that? 0.06 AH?
    Amazing.

    @TMR-JWAP at least for the 12 V replacement starter batteries, there is a built in BMS that cuts off at around 10 V, (my understanding). After which it will no longer drain any further. (I assume measuring voltage after cutoff will yield 0 but internally it's kept at a safe minimum level. Maybe something similar?

    Puncture test results, I think I post the first video on another wrong thread, sorry.
    more test videos coming. (overcharge, overdischarge and all the spicy stuff)

    Lithium battery puncture test - horizontal
    delta voltage : 3.292v to 0.022v
    case temperature: 18C to 33C
    observation: smoke, smell, noise, no spark, no flame, minimum thermal runaway


    Lithium battery puncture test - vertical
    delta voltage : 3.292v to 3.25v
    case temperature: 17C to 18c
    observation: small drop in voltage, no smoke, no flame but with smell

    @jacktheripper does your Lithium hybrid battery assembly carry a warranty?

    per-order is officially open now at ProjectLithium.com

    The last site/platform was too sketchy so I completely redone it with Shoptify, take a look and spread the words, 24 packs remaining in the first batch, with early bird discount, schedule deliver in May.

    Gen3 and the V are the same, so there shouldn't be a difference.

    yes,
    Prius V US spec = Prius NiMH
    Prius V EU spec = Lithium already.

    Wake me up when the battery has specifications proven by at least two independent third parties, a million miles of safety testing, and a firm price... I could care less about pre-release, unverified BS.

    more testing videos coming up soon, including UN38.3
    with total of 12 test vehicles running out there, I think a million mile is a few months away but sure, I will wake you up.
