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.
They claim the entire package is 165 lbs.

The Enginer kit's dc to dc converter simply puts out a voltage. This voltage is at 70% of the OEM pack's full charge. So, it will only charge the OEM pack to 70%.
