There is no hard rule because usage varies. Our 2003 Prius battery was
replaced in January 2009.

I replaced the 12-volt battery on my '05 at about 103,000 miles.

My son's 2005 has over 200,000 on it and he's on his 3rd battery counting
the original. My 2006 at 61,000 is still on it's original battery with no
sign of failure. However I'm considering replacing it before Winter. I
can't believe it has lasted this long. I know it's a unique design, but has
anyone come up with a replacement other than Toyota? I checked with Advance
Auto here and they don't carry one. Some time ago there was a discussion
here about replacing it with a Motor Bike or Garden Tractor battery. Does
anyone have experience doing that?

True. They used to be made in Denver by Gates. Then they moved
elsewhere. Now they're made overseas. They're not as good as they used
to be. Batteries Plus has a couple of replacement models that cost much
less ($185 - $230) than the one from a Toyota dealer ($300+). They'll
also wheel out a proper tester and measure the existing battery's output
both at rest and under load the machine generates, at no charge. If you
don't need a new battery they'll tel you and also give you a guesstimate
of how much longer you may have before needing to replace it.
