Well, for something that can't be done, there sure are a lot of articles on reconditioning NiMH Hybrid car batteries on the internet, including a description of the basic technique, and a lot of firms claim that that's what they are doing as part of refurbishing pre-2015 Prius Battery packs - supposedly that's when Toyota went to Li packs. Anyway, I'll keep the forum informed on my experience. If I "only" get 5 years instead of the full 8 for a new battery - I'm still WAY ahead of paying Toyota for their refurbished battery pack - it doesn't use new cells either, according to my local dealership.
