Take your meds! JK.

The Chevy Bolt is going through round 3 (or is it 4) of battery woes. Stuffing thousands of cells that must be closely matched in performance creates a headache down the road.

Batteries have many technical challenges to overcome, and I suspect people's enthusiasm outpaces that reality.
