Default Recal?

I've read about this to some degree but I don't exactly know what it is. My car IMA battery drops to 1-2 bars out of nowhere and then charges back up to full.. Is this recal?

Yes. The drop to near empty is a negative recal.

The sudden march to full is a positive recal.

Common for batteries at the ragged edge of an IMA light or with an IMA light.

Yup, running with an IMA light for the moment (Don't drive often, but when I do really drive it next, it's going north to get a grid charge). Thanks for clarifying my question, I wasn't 100% sure about the definition and found nothing on google.
