The Insight hybrid system

The Insight hybrid system (IMA) has a 84 cell NiMH battery pack which can run between about 99 Volt and 120 Volt, but typically sits around 107 Volt (which was exactly what I've measured from my own pack on 2 occasions) when it is about 50% charged.
Some excellent data on it can be found here; AVTA: 2010 Honda Insight HEV Testing Results | Department of Energy. (thx Cobb )

(I will add some stuff here later)
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
