I did see you comment on some of those threads, so you already know more than me on this. Hopefully another company does produce the replacement once I need it.. at a much lower cost

Interesting it appears Infiniti discontinued that entire-line of Battery across all models by the looks of things, they will probably have a new replacement listed soon.
As even the Hybrid 2014 models are still under warranty for a couple more years. I have no issues finding parts for my 2009 G37 still from those sources you linked.

With that said I don't think the Hybrid's 12V battery is actually unique in any way, just your typical glass-mat battery that is 12V.
Wouldn't be surprised if you could pick one up off the shelf and be just fine.
@Avedis53 - Do you recall seeing anything about a difference in battery's for the 12V in the SM? I took a quick skim but didn't see any specific
sections relating to it.

I don't have a SM for the hybrid. The regular SM doesn't address the hybrid systems. Can't you just cross-reference the hybrid battery for it's AGM equivalent?

Happy to hear parts were not discontinued due to the Hybrid then. Some of the parts are much harder to find than the gas models.

All the OEM Hybrid batteries get sourced from Japan and sounds like most battery shops do not carry the equivalent. Read somewhere here they went to a small battery shop and it was throwing error messages on the dash and acting weird. Not too familiar with AGM batteries, but definitely don't want to guinea pig and potentially void warranty or damage the hybrid system..

Hmm dang best bet would be to check with the dealer then, they should know an equivalent.
