Longer lasting 12 volt batteries for Toyota, Lexus and Nissan HybridYour Lexus, Toyota and Nissan Hybrid has one or more 12 volt batteries and a high voltage battery. The high voltage battery cranks the engine so you do not need a 12 volt battery with lots of cranking amps. Instead get a deep discharge battery (more deep discharges before it dies) that handles the drain running the electronics (security system, remote sensors, clock and memory maintenance) while the car is parked. These batteries should last twice as long and cost less than the Toyota battery.
Even though you do not need the 12 volt battery to crank the engine (the high voltage battery does) if the 12 volt battery is VERY drained your car will not start because the battery needs to be able to supply enough power to start all the computer system in the car, and the ignition system. Once that occurs a high voltage to 12 volt circuit engages and the ready light lights.
