Nice. That's almost twice the power density of an Insight's NiMH cells. What's the total net weight of all the components going in the Prius?

How does the Enginer pack know whether it's over-charging the Prius pack? Can you trick it into charging both packs when you plug the car in? That would give you ~5KWh.
