Hmmmm. I assume that's an exchange price in the vid. Makes me curious what a reman Prius battery would cost with no core. Might be a viable alternative for RV house power.

Yep and maybe shooting for a front end totaled Prius is not a total waste of time. Have to be sure the battery pack is rather fresh. Wonder if insurance settlements take battery age into account. I sorta like the mounting system. But the management system is a from-scratch hurdle.

I wonder how the battery management is managed? I did not notice any sensor wires.

Riddle me this: Are large capacity lithium batteries (such as are in electric vehicles) made up of a whole bunch of little individual cells (about AA size) ... or has lithium battery technology/chemistry advanced to where lithium batteries of low cell-count but large amp hour capacities (as in lead acid golf cart 6V batteries with 3 cells, and as in lead acid group sizes 12V batteries with 6 cells) can be manufactured?

I would hope that nowadays a Tesla's battery pack doesn't have to be made up of hundreds of little tiny cells - with all those interconnects required in order to hook them all together.

Coming from the repair side of the business that entire battery pack should have been a plug and play. All of those ancillary pieces probably cost $5 but made the process unnecessarily tedious.
The video was very well done, great job.

Phil,

Prismatic cells can be used. They are a large format design.

Thanks Don!

How about some links to pictures of prismatic Li cells?
