Remanufactured Hybrid Battery Rebuild Kits
REMANUFACTURED HIGH PERFORMANCE HYBRID BATTERY REBUILD KITS
Remanufactured or Brand New Cells; Which Hybrid Battery Replacement Option is Right for You?
Having trouble deciding which hybrid battery replacement option is right for you? You’re not alone, but asking yourself the following three questions can help make your decision a lot easier.
- Do you plan on keeping your hybrid long term or selling/trading it in for a newer car in the near future?
- What is your budget?
- What is the current value of your hybrid and does it make sense to purchase a new battery or just buy a new car?
If your hybrid is in good shape and you plan on keeping it for the foreseeable future, a battery with brand new cells is the only way to go. New cylindrical modules and cells can restore the power, performance and longevity of your battery to its original condition or better, they cost up to 50% less than dealerships charge and they come with longer extended warranties than dealership replacements.
If your hybrid is an older model with extremely high mileage, you plan to sell or trade-in your hybrid within the next 12-24 months or if you’re on a limited budget and need the most economical and reliable way to get your hybrid back on the road, than a quality remanufactured hybrid battery or hybrid battery rebuild kit makes the most sense.
WARNING: Beware of non-hybrid professionals claiming they can fix your battery for a fraction of the cost. It may sound tempting, but they are not viable options for most consumers. These types of “fixes” involve very little technology and rely on simple voltmeters to find the bad cell. Replacing or swapping out the bad cell for a good cell may get your hybrid back on the road, but there are 168 cells in a 2004-2009 Toyota Prius hybrid battery pack and any one of the other 167 cells could be on the verge of failure. Your battery could fail in a month or 5 minutes after you replaced the last bad cell. This is by far the cheapest of all options, but it’s only an option if you’re looking for cheap, unreliable transportation and don’t mind spending more time in the auto repair shop than you do on the road.
The High Voltage Battery (HVB) is the heart and soul of your hybrid vehicle, but you do not have to spend a fortune at your local dealership when it is time to replace your old hybrid battery. Our Remanufactured Hybrid Battery Rebuild Kits are built to a higher standard than dealership replacement batteries and we use our own proprietary advanced technology to build the most technologically sound, properly tested and professionally matched remanufactured hybrid battery rebuild kits on the market today.
The technology to accurately test and diagnose the properties of every cell in every module of a hybrid battery didn’t exist when we first opened our doors for business over a decade ago, so we custom designed and built our own proprietary hybrid battery testing, diagnostic and remanufacturing technology. Using the 2004-2009 Toyota Prius hybrid as an example, our proprietary technology allows us to accurately measure the elements contained in each of the 168 cells that make up 2004-2009 Toyota Prius hybrid battery packs. These 11 elements determine the exact state of health of every individual cell. We utilize our technology to revitalize and remanufacture the cells to perform better in almost every way. Internal resistance is lowered, capacity is increased. Separator degradation rate is improved.
All modules are stress tested under simulated real life conditions on another one of our proprietary machines. Each cell is balanced and then matched with 167 other cells of equivalent quality, durability and longevity. The 168 matched and balanced cells are divided into 28 Prismatic modules with each module containing 6 matched and balanced cells. The modules are then numbered in a very specific order to ensure the best performance and longest service life possible.
