Frequent charges of 1 or 2 minutes during the day - car in the garage

Frequent charges of 1 or 2 minutes during the day - car in the garage

So in one of the last updates (can't remember which one) my model 3 started to have frequent 1 or 2 minute chargers during the day.

Here's an example of today's charges:
09:56 - 09:57 0 Minute Start - 86 % End - 86 % Added - 0.0 kWh %
13:52 - 13:54 1 Minute Start - 86 % End - 86 % Added - 0.1 kWh %
19:49 - 19:51 2 Minutes Start - 86 % End - 86 % Added - 0.1 kWh %

Has anyone seen this?

Yes. It's been reported a number of times already.

So why is it doing that?

It’s a bug. I just unplugged when I went on vacation and was happy to see how little vampire drain there was. Half a percent per day.

I've also noticed a vast improvement from V drain. Almost nothing. Not sure which update changed it but its almost non existent now. Sweet!

Huh. I was under the impression that Bighorn's life was already just one big vacation.

yeah I see the same thing ....

to all the battery experts on this forum: Is this safe to ignore (I assume so) or should be unplug the car once it is filled up? (thinking mostly about battery life)

@Marzipan
Probably just an annoyance. I'd prefer not to be reminded that something is amiss. You could watch the charge port color to see if anything is actually transpiring.

@Bulldawg
It's not?

Yup same issue since update.
