    Thanks. With a 2013 ES300h, a 2009 Prius, a 2010 Prius, and a 2015 Prius v in the family, we’re potential customers.

    I'm sitting at just under 10k with my pack! I've had no issues thus far, even when using it left on overnight to power an inverter My first autocross event will be in three weeks, so I'll be posting some pictures and videos of that. That will include repeated hard driving followed by force charging :) I'll try to capture as much data from torque as possible to share with the group.

    No external BMS, the Prius ECU handles everything. It looks like Jack is posting some torture test videos, which are going to be far in excess of the torture I'll be giving it on the track.

    If you have nothing to contribute, how about you leave this thread? You seem to have negativity on just about everything that is not your cup of tea. I own a Prius Hybrid. I want to know about a battery replacement I can purchase that is aftermarket and the cost does not exceed the worth of my Prius. There are many Prius owners in the same position. This author/vendor here is an independent company bringing us hope and something new at a fraction of the cost with better specs all across the board. If you have no interest in this product and the type of research that is involved to bring this to market, take your nose and go troll somewhere else. The underwater basket weaving forums might be good for you.

    its now, if you disagree or oppose, your character will be attacked. No counter argument with facts required on their end.

    I placed an order, or preorder.

    Looking forward to this. Will these come with new bus bars?

    Hi Tony,
    Thank you for the support, you actually won't need half of the bus bar with this new Lithium pack. (further lower the internal resistance)

    pictures can be found in below link, you only need to connect the bus bar that connect to the ECU.
