Question jump start box

I need to charge the 12v battery. I found the jump start black box in the engine compartment, but I can figure how to open it.
Can anyone help?

If you need to charge the battery, connect the charger directly to the 12v battery terminals. Disconnect the 12v from the car first and use a low amp charger. The terminals under the hood are just for a jump start to power up the electronics.

You don't specify what model year Prius you have, but the following video should be for the Gen II and Gen III Prius. It shows how to open the fuse box.
