A note of CAUTION, you should charge and balance these batteries properly before use.
I will recommend you to discharge these to a safe limit through a proper dump load and recharge them again at least a couple of times before using these in the car.
Do the proper research in the extended information to be found in Prius Chat.
Also, you should band these battery packs with metal or plastic strapping, to keep these 4 very thought, being that the metallic ends with the SS straps are not supplied with this kit.
The metal end plates are being used as a safety precaution to help compress and avoid bulging of the batt. plastic cases wile charging.
