While the batteries are obviously a significant component of a hybrid system, there are no optional batteries for any hybrids. You have no choice of which of several different batteries to buy in your car* - there's only one battery (battery pack, actually).
Nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries are used in Honda's hybrids. The HCH has a 144 volt battery pack made up of 120 1.2 volt D cells. Prius' batteries appear to have evolved.
* Unlike Segways, which do have different batteries - Lithium ion vs NiMH.
