Question Battery part #

My problem seems to be a bad battery, apparently there is no real warning, it just dies, stopped holding a charge.
We went to the parts store and got a battery but it was 9.5" long/wide and my original is only abt 8", consequently it had to be returned because it would not fit.

Neglected to take a picture or write down the battery part # and think is is under the part that attached on top.
Saw one on Amazon, says:
Replacement AGM Toyota Prius Auxiliary Battery - Made in the USA. Replaces JIS part number S46B24R.
link: on amazon.

Misplaced my manual and would like to know if anyone has the part # and if this is it.

my car died while I was driving it on the highway, so I am leary, because it should have been charging while I drove pretty much high speed...~65 mph.
Tried to jump it and didn't really work until they put the cable directly on the battery in the trunk. engine sounded normal, drove up and down the street. turned it off, it started up again. went and got gas nearby, the red triangle, ck engine and that symbol (O) came on. Then went to the parts store (in another car) to return the battery and it would not start when we got back. It needs 13.67 on the meter to start. was registering around 11.xx jumping up & down.

You can enter your VIN on then type in the keyword 'battery' in the search bar feature to find results for the OEM Toyota part number for the battery. It's really easy to do. Hope this helps you out.

Why not just buy it from the Toyota dealer? The cost is right around the same price as the one on Amazon and you don't have to wait for delivery.

As far as a jump goes, don't know what year your car is but on my there is a fuse box underneath the hood. If you open it up there is a big bolt and nut that powers a strip of metal that feed the power to all the fuses. The large bolt and nut is usually covered by a red colored cover. All you have to do is connect the + jumper cable to that bolt/nut and the - jumper cable to any good ground and that will be enough to start your car. And, as you have already found out, if you stop and wait too long it won't start again until you get another jump. I suggest you just lift the top deck in the back, remove the old battery (mine is in the very right rear of the car under that deck that covers the spare. Take it with you and give it to them as an exchange and you won't have to pay a core charge and have to return later with the old battery.
