Default Hybrid Battery Repair

It looks like I am going to need a new battery (2000 Insight)- I was attracted to this battery repair site, which would cost much less than my dealer is quoting:

http://www.hybrid-battery-repair.com/insight/index.html

Does anyone have experience with this dealer and approach?

They seem to think that the rebuild will only last about a year. They are, however, working on manufacturing a lithium battery for Civic, which they hope to have available for sale in March.

Following advice in this forum (thanks!) I contacted Hybrid Revolt (contactus@hybridrevolt.com). Matt the very knowledgeable owner supplied me with a rebuilt battery $1100 and an original battery control module (BCM) for $25. The car is now charging and operating like when it was new!

It sure beats the pants off the $3000 dealer estimate and insistence that the upgraded BCM they installed earlier is valid (see associated thread: Beware Upgraded BCM on this forum).
