    Hi everyone, I'm in the midst of working on a head gasket replacement and afraid my HV traction battery will degrade and possibly give a CEL code when my Prius is back on the road. Does anyone have a Prolong charger I can borrow/rent for a week? That would be much appreciated! My car has 250k miles has been out of commission for a week and will be down for another week. Thanks in advance.

    2-3 weeks inactivity should not hurt the hybrid battery at all.

    The prolong charger and automatic discharger are on the ready, just don't have an extra gen3 cable laying around :whistle:

    Might consider a DIY grid charger, and running the HV battery fan on high (advanced search is currently working).

    Headgasket project done and battery is still in good shape! Thanks for the responses. Pretty cool link PriusCamper. I'll look further into this.
