We at the Venice Hybrid Tech have been getting a lot of comments and requests for making a Discharger for the hybrid battery packs for various vehicles, especially Hondas and Ford Escape hybrids. So here we have it. We are introducing our latest product namely Discharger for hybrid battery packs. The discharger comes with a box with a Voltmeter , a lighted Power Switch, cables for connecting the light and the Hybrid battery. We have incorporated the same 2 Pin connectors as our Grid Chargers and High Speed Chargers on the Discharger for backward integration. So now if you have purchased a Grid Charger or a High Speed Charger from us, you can use the existing wire harness to connect to the Discharger and discharge the whole battery pack.
The next question we get asked is how much should I discharge my hybrid battery pack??????
There are no hard and fast rules and limits but based on our experiences, we generally discharge each stick/ module by at the most one volt, so for example if you are discharging a Toyota Prius Gen II pack, with 28 modules, We recommend that you go down by 28 V maximum i.e. Say if the battery pack is 220 V, go down to 192 V or 96 V each half. But you can discharge the whole pack in one go or also in two halves. We here at Venice Hybrid generally go down to 100 V each half. You need to be careful to check the initial voltages and then decide how much you want to discharge. The same yard stick can be applied to the Honda vehicle.
A word of caution. Although it is good to discharge as low as possible, however if you go too low, you might damage some modules which are already weak. You please do a calculated and controlled discharge. One thing that we have observed is that the Honda sticks are much more robust and forgiving while discharging vis a vis Toyota modules. We recommend extra caution for Toyota Modules.
