I have owned quite a few of these Toyota Prius cars. They are great and inexpensive rides that have a superb fuel economy. Many owners have reported that doing essential maintenance on the vehicle has been pretty easy to do as well. You could say that the Toyota Prius is a car for the masses.

There are some things about the Prius that scare people, though. The High Voltage system, the massive amount of electronics both can cause heart palpitations when seeing there is trouble in these systems. Repairs do not have to be hard, and maintenance can also prevent repair.

I want to cover why knowing about Prius battery maintenance is so essential and why there are quite a few companies that are making a killing off of you doing a process you could do at your home. It is called the battery reconditioning.

What Is Battery Reconditioning?
Battery reconditioning is a process that helps aging batteries find a new breath of life. It is a process that helps our Nickel Metal Hydride batteries have capacity restored. As our batteries age, the overall usefulness of the battery diminishes, and we lose precious energy storage capabilities.

One way to help restore or even prevent the failure is through a battery reconditioning process that brings the array back up to a more "new" like condition. You can learn more about that process here with this article, that I wrote that goes more in-depth.
