In the news:

"GM said Friday that it will recall 3,233 2013 model year Chevrolet Volts to remedy a problem with battery cell balancing that could cause the car to shut down in traffic."

My 2013 is on the recall list too. It is an early build, a PEP/Special Event manufacturer's vehicle put in service 8/29/12. It was never registered to a private owner until I bought it. Car only has 30K miles on it, screen shows 10.4 -10.5 battery usage before the ICE comes on, so I am assuming that the battery is still healthy. I'm just waiting for the formal notification and availability of the reprogram info.

I have an ebike with a 36v, 12Ahr LiFeP04 battery pack with a built-in battery maintenance module. It will charge up, stop charging, and then in a few minutes start charging again. This cycle repeats a few times. One time I noticed the Volt doing the same - is this the balancing process?
