A hybrid car battery is like any other battery except that it is rechargeable and has enough juice to move a large heavy vehicle down the road for a few feet or a few miles. The batteries in hybrid cars are responsible for the better fuel economy but the chemical material that makes up all car batteries, whether it's a conventional car or a hybrid, is typically toxic.
Is hybrid battery expensive? In sort yes it can range from 1,000 up to 6,000 for a full hybrid battery replacement. Hybrids batteries have proven to be extremely reliable though. Most hybrid car batteries are designed to last the lifetime of the automobile. There are three major types of batteries that are considering for use in hybrid cars: lead-acid, nickel-metal hydride and lithium-ion By far, lead-acid is considered the most toxic of the three, and on top of that it's also extremely heavy. By undertaxing their batteries, hybrids ensure longer life spans. Hybrids come with software that purposely stops the battery from charging once it hits about 80 percent of full capacity. Similarly, the battery will say it's empty when it falls to about 20 percent. If hybrids do conk out early, most batteries come with an eight-year or 100,000-mile warranty. You'll notice two things when it's time for a new power pack: The engine will run almost constantly, even under light acceleration, and your fuel economy will drop off significantly.
There are other ways to increase hybrid battery life: Coasting to a stop; like braking, coasting generates the kinetic energy that will charge your battery and extend its life, avoiding jack rabbit starts. Stopping at an intersection usually shuts down a hybrid's gas engine. As you move away from the intersection, a light press on the accelerator will keep the vehicle in all-electric mode. Replacing a hybrid car battery is a job that is best left to a professional.
