Thanks for the response and good reference. But, I retain my doubts, as is referenced in a 2012 Camry Hybrid manual. (Copy/Paste)
Hybrid Synergy Drive Component Locations & Descriptions
12 Volt Auxiliary Battery 􀁮
Trunk Passenger Side
A lead-acid battery that supplies power to the low voltage devices. Ā©
Hybrid Vehicle (HV) Battery Pack 􀁯
Trunk Area, Mounted to Cross Member and Behind Rear Seat
244.8 Volt Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery
Notice it says that the 12v is a "lead-acid" battery. Recognizing that "lead acid" is pretty generic, I looked it up. Below is a "how to tell" statement from a battery article
Read the battery label. Liquid--or flooded--lead acid batteries will say "lead acid," "wet cell," "flooded lead acid" or "liquid lead acid" on the label. Gel-filled lead acid batteries will say "Gel-Filled" on the label. AGM lead acid batteries will say "AGM" or "Absorbed Glass Mat," "sealed regulated valve," "dry cell," "non-spillable," or "valve regulated" on the label.
So, why is this such a mystery? Further, I checked with one of Fort Worth's prominant dealer sales & service and they didn't know what an AGM battery was! Their considered sales authority went out to look and said that it appears to be a standard lead-acid & recited: Gp 26, Pansonic 240412, 20HR57AHCCA450B26JIS. He didn't designate spaces, but trying to read through this, from what looks familiar to me, it probably is a standard lead-acid.

I purchased my 07 Toyota Camry Hybrid New January 2007 and I havenít had any problems out of it. Last week it reached 100k miles and I havenít got a new battery yet & was wondering about how long is the battery life for this car?

My car battery died at 101000 on my 07 Camry hybrid last year I ordered in July and they got it in September. They battery cost about 5000 use and I believe 300 to put it in. 2 years ago the actuator was leaking and I paid 2800 use to have It replaced and I just took it in yesterday because the check vsc light came in and the actuator Is leaking. Only 1 year guarantee. They want to charge 2800 to have it replaced again.
