What NOT to do to your hybrid battery and hybrid vehicle

1. Do NOT try to fix only the failed modules in the pack

At the start, your new hybrid vehicle's battery pack modules are well-balanced with Power. Over time, vehicle operating conditions cause the battery pack to deteriorate resulting in a loss of efficiency.

After some length of service, you will arrive at the stage where your battery pack modules begin to fail. Can you save money by just replacing the specific failed modules?


Well, the short answer is no.


This is because the hybrid battery pack modules in your car would have gone through very different driving and load conditions compared with newly replaced modules. In addition, the new or used modules inserted into the old pack would have a very different state of health, Chemistry, Power and Energy level resulting in an unbalanced battery pack. Hence, the hybrid battery will not be able to deliver the equal and full power that the car was originally designed to perform at, resulting in erratic, poor acceleration and poor fuel economy etc.


Moreover, the other modules in the same aged battery pack would soon start to fail too because of the charging and discharging cycles, ageing chemistry and increased internal resistance. This makes the option of replacing failed modules a short term fix which would result in more problems down the road.


2. Do NOT leave your hybrid vehicle under the sun without ventilation


Heat damage caused by leaving your vehicle under the sun is irreversible. Your hybrid battery pack is sensitive to heat damage. Try to park your car under the shelter whenever you can to prolong the life of your hybrid battery.



3. Do NOT neglect the maintenance of the hybrid battery cooling system

The hybrid cooling system of your vehicle must be properly maintained by your service centre. As mentioned, your hybrid battery is sensitive to heat damaged and thus proper care must be done by experienced technicians in the field of hybrid and electric vehicle technology. Do check with us to find out if your hybrid cooling system has been maintained well to save on the costs of replacing your hybrid battery!


4. Do NOT recklessly perform hard acceleration on your hybrid vehicle

Hard acceleration results in heavy current draw from your hybrid battery pack, which would result in overheating of the hybrid battery pack. Over prolonged periods of time, this would greatly affect the lifespan of your hybrid battery due to the heat damage. We encourage hybrid vehicle owners to perform smooth acceleration instead of accelerating abruptly.



5. Do NOT shop for the cheapest & quickest fix out there for a failed hybrid battery


As mentioned earlier, some hybrid owners have the misconception of thinking that they can simply change and mix new and used hybrid battery pack modules together. As this may be seen as the cheapest option in the market available and may seem to offer a short term fix to their problems.

The team at hevshop have came across cars that were poorly fitted with sub-standard, unsafe, non-genuine modules in the hybrid battery pack, not crash tested and with fire risk. This causes even more costly problems to the consumers who are eager to find a quick solution out there.

We urge consumers to exercise due diligence and be wary of those cheap fixes.
