I am planning on leaving the Prolong Car Harness installed on the Insight. This is the harness connection that is used for the Prolong Battery Discharger and Prolong Charger. However, I'm planning on keeping the Prolong Battery Discharger to use on my 2012 Prius V (it is able to do both of them) and then sell the Prolong Charger on Insight Central (this one is not compatible with my Prius unfortunately). If the person buying the Insight wants the Prolong Battery Discharger ($274 new) and the Prolong Charger ($329 new), then I would sell you the whole setup for an additional $450. Both are in brand new condition, when not in use they are stored in the shipping box and bubble wrap. I will not sell either until the Insight is sold.
