Hybrid batteries are nowadays created to last as long as long as the vehicle (generally, hybrids have a standard 5 year warranty). Vehicles that pass the regular checkup performed by authorized professionals can benefit from an extended battery warranty, with an additional 1 year (or 15,000km).

Performing periodic maintenance also involves battery maintenance. Overheating is one of the most common causes of loss of battery efficiency in hybrid cars, and may lead to the appearance of the fault code on one or more component cells. Therefore, the cooling system will be periodically cleaned, as will the contacts in the battery.recondition a Toyota hybrid battery

In addition, it is possible to recondition a Toyota hybrid battery. Regeneration refers mainly to batteries that show a decrease in efficiency although they were well maintained, due to the age and kilometers of the car. Regeneration aims at rewriting the chemical memory of the batteries. After this process, you will notice a significant difference in the power of the hybrid system, and the batteries will have a longer life.

If it happens that your hybrid`s battery suffers a failure not covered by the warranty, replacing it can cost you a lot of money. The good news is that regeneration is much cheaper.
