The Prolong Intelligent Discharger is an automated hybrid battery discharging system. It balances speed with safety, applying a fast discharging load (~2.5A) to the entire battery while in the battery’s normal operating range. As the battery drains reducing the discharge load becomes critical to protecting the battery from damage. The Prolong Intelligent Discharger automatically and progressively reduces its load on the battery, maintaining safe levels throughout the discharge process (down to 200mA in the deep discharge range). It has a user adjustable discharge termination voltage setting, allowing you to simply set the desired minimum voltage, press start, and walk away. It will safely drain the battery pack to the desired voltage, then turn itself off when finished. The Prolong Intelligent Discharger has multiple safety systems including self monitoring thermal protection & excess voltage shut down capabilities to protect itself and your hybrid battery.
Each Prolong Intelligent Discharger is calibrated at our manufacturing facility for a specific size battery – for example the 168 cell battery pack in the 2004-2015 Prius & 2012+ Prius v. A Prolong Intelligent Discharger requires our Prolong Battery Charger and a Discharge Ready car harness to complete the hybrid battery reconditioning process.
