Pretty sure the Accord Hybrid (non plug-in) uses a 1.3kWh lithium. I believe the battery is only there to provide power in addition to the peak the engine can produce - e.g. if you're drawing 100kW, the engine might be making 80 and the battery giving up the extra 20 until you're done accelerating.
