    In contrast to the others, Toyota Prius hybrid battery energy runs out faster because in reality they were just charged at 60%. This fact presents an opportunity for constructive braking. It is typical for the system to propose the battery charge level up to 15% more. As a result, the battery is by no means permitted to obtain full charge.

    There is a hybrid battery scheme in the US that includes a guarantee of 8 years or 100,000 miles and this covers the Toyota Prius battery as it uses a hybrid battery. If you are an owner of a Toyota Prius, you can avail of a lengthier guarantee offered at 10 years or 150,000 miles, that is if you reside in California. Toyota issued a statement that not a single battery replacement has been made up to this day.

    Established in a laboratory bench test for batteries, the life expectancy of nickel-metal hybrid batteries from Toyota is about 150,000 miles compared to other manufacturers who have merely a mileage of 36,000 or three years.

    According to Toyota, the lifespan of a Prius battery is determined by the mileage not time or years. It has been concluded that the Prius battery can run 180,000 miles without a glitch although they were claiming that several Prius batteries have been used for over 200,000 miles, also without any glitch.

    The expectancy of the Toyota Prius battery life is about eight years and you can expect them to last for nine years without any wear or tear. After eight years it might need some replacements. Those who face problems regarding their battery are suggested to try out all the options which are easily available to them. We have found 3 main options you can consider,

    * You can buy a brand new battery from a dealer. This will set you back between $3000 and $4000 for something Toyota should have never let happen.
    * You can check out eBay there are some people are selling Toyota Prius batteries for half the cost of the Toyota dealers. They are usually ranging from $1500 to $2500. This can be risky because you will not know how much were and tear or how many miles the battery will have on it.
    * The best option I have found was on the internet. You can find a guide on the internet which will show you how to rebuild your own Prius battery using just regular old tools you would have in your garage. Some people feel this is a not a task they can handle. They can still save money using this option. There are shops other than Toyota dealers which will actually use the Prius Guide you provide for them and will rebuild the battery for you. This option is a lot cheaper than any of the above options because in most cases you can have your battery rebuilt and your Prius back on the road for about $500 dollars.
