Fitted To: Toyota Prius 2nd generation

Our 2011 Prius Spirit had been suffering from intermittent startup problems since we bought it as a used vehicle with 25,000 miles on the clock from the Jemca Toyota dealer in Bracknell 3 years ago. Jemca has had the problem pointed out to them at least 5 times since and seemed unable to diagnose it, even claiming that the 12v (original) battery passed the tests laid down by Toyota. About a year ago I obtained a digital voltmeter designed as a 12V auxiliary socket device and discovered that when the problem occurred the voltage sat at 9.5V or less and only part of the onboard electronics would boot up leaving the main engine management electronics/computer hanging and not allowing the high voltage traction battery relays to switch power to the 12V inverter that normally recharges the 12V battery and runs the 12V lighting, audio, etc. When I fed this information to the dealership, their technicians still claimed the 12V battery tested okay, But I remained suspicious until the cold weather this winter saw the frequency of the starting problem increase dramatically. Checking online I found that Prius owners in the USA have been reporting similar faults and the consensus was that the best solution was replacing the OEM Yuasa 12V battery with a yellow top Optima Battery -- the DS46B24R being perfect for the Prius range of Toyotas. I bought one via Tanya, dithered over fitting it, missed a dental appointment due to the worst starting problems ever, fitted the Optima, and I haven't had a problem since! Whenever I start the car now, my little voltmeter never drops below 11.5V even in the coldest conditions and earliest stages of startup until the inverter powered by the high voltage traction battery cuts in and raises the level to about 14.5V to charge, maintain and run the 12V circuitry

Fitted To: Toyota Prius Spirit 1.8L Hybrid Petrol 2011

Well-built battery. The battery comes with a removable plastic handle that I removed to be able to fit the cables. It is easy to grab the battery and lift it also without the handle. The battery is (~ 20 mm) longer than the original battery that I had in my car but it fits into the battery compartment, anyway.

Shipping incredibly fast from UK to the center of France. DHL delivered the battery to a shop close to my location because I wasn't at home. This batterey fits perfecty to my Prius III, the replacement was fast and easy, and I just have basic knowledge in car mechanic.. I definitely recommend Tayna.

It is the first time that I buy a car battery via mail order and I must admit that I was a little hesitant to do it. But I made the jump and is very satisfied. Fast and precise delivery in less days than estimated. Thank you!

The battery itself is fine. But i ordered a replacement for my prius which i understood was a dedicated fit, although the battery fits in, the vent pipe doesn't. also the YTS2.7J is different from my order which was DS46B24R. On arrival the outer box was in taters!! no card was left when i was out. On second delivery its was left in a bin cupboard. These points may be minor but also quite annoying.

Poor service this time, not what I was expecting. The battery was delivered to me at 5.6 volts not at 12 volts. I tried to charge i. It proved to be impossible( would not rise to fully charged using stage charger) and it discharged within one day, (from 12.7 volts down to 12.03 volts after initial surface charge dissipation). You did not have an imediate replacement and so far I am still waiting as your representative said it could not be sourced untill the New Year. Very disapointed!
