If your 12v battery is dead, you won't be able to open your trunk where the 12v battery is located. You will need to jump the car before you can open the trunk.



FYI: Costco does not sell batteries for the Prius.
Though this is not a recommended, I have been using costco cheap 40 bucks battery for my gen 1 prius for over a year, and it's working fine. Heck, pretty much any 12v battery would probably work, so you really don't have to spend 100 + something on the 12v. The battery i'm currently using in my gen 1 prius is even a wet battery and the size is not even original, and it works even better than my factory battery. Try this at your own risk, though.

Just wondering if anyone tried using the VISA code and the AP30 code? With success? That'd put you down to $80off + the $25 rebate :-) and a $50 credit for future purchases off $100 & up.....anyone?
nevermind, just read the fine print:

Coupons are not combinable with any other promotional offers.

still a good deal i think Smilie thank you for posting!

I am thinking of buying the largest Optima battery and use it as an emergency backup battery source powering a power injector during power outages. I figure since they are deep cycle/marine, they should be able to be drained completely without damage. I will also purchase a trickle charger made specifically for these to keep it charged.

Has anyone done that with these batteries? Price is best I've seen for the D31M which seems to have the longest Reserve Capacity at 155m. It is 61lbs though. Frown

Any tips/hints welcome on safety, setup, etc...Just powering computer equipment for a home based business where going offline would be too costly.

I could go the generator route, but those are very noisy.
look at some of the solor energy blogs....very well reserched on what batt to use for this ocassion/use

Thanks for the tips...I think I'll probably just have to bite the bullet and use a small generator instead and just put up with the loud noise. I don't think I would be able to use it during the evening though.

12v lead acid is to start the car if the main battery dies and operate the electronics. The hybrid battery is Nimh and 200-300v. It drives the traction motors.

Think of it like the backup battery in your alarm clock.
now that make sense, the lead bat is way cheaper and easy to acquire.

Nice deal. I stumbled on the coupon and rebate while shopping for my car. I have a blue top that I have had for over 7 years and still going strong.
