Some evidence from other threads that beneficial battery balancing occurs at charge levels >90%, which implies the opportunity to balance the pack without having to go fully to 100%. Agree no verification from Tesla, but some of us did see range improve a few miles after several weeks of charging to 90% (vs. charging to lower levels). Maybe some day we'll really know.
Some people have reported a slight increase of their rated range display after charging beyond 90%. This can be explained in different ways. It might be balancing, it might be just recalibrating the capacity algorithm as Tesla officially said it would. If the Leaf balances it's batteries at any time (while driving, charging or just sitting), I would assume Tesla would be limiting it to just near 100% charging. The size of the resistors found in the Tesla battery are too small to do any significant balancing in a short amount of time, thus a more continuous approach would be more likely.
