Earlier this year (update 2019.12.1 I received in April) I received higher supercharging power capabilities up to 150 kW from 120kW. For the first month or two I noticed the cooling system running full bore whenever I supercharged over 100 kW, including for about 10 min after the charging was complete sometimes.
Fast forward to today, and for roughly the last month I don't recall hearing my model 3 compressor run high anytime during supercharging. Last week I supercharged at 135-147 kW multiple times on a road trip without any noisy fan or compressor noise. I have driven a model X that still does this noisy compressor/ fan noise while supercharging, and I have heard it from model S and X at supercharging stations. I don't recall hearing it from other model 3s recently as well, so maybe it was a software update.
Has anyone else noticed this? I am a little concerned that my battery may be getting too hot.
