    I have nightly charge limit set to 80%.

    But it always shows 79% after reaching 'complete'. It's not a big deal to me. But I am curious if that's normal.

    (and yes, I know I could just set at 81%!! :D)

    If your car finishes charging many hours before you start using it in the morning, then it’s losing some charge to cooling and vampire drain before you depart.

    Normal.
    Battery voltage will fluctuate after charging and temp changes

    If it's below about ~55F or so you will "lose" about 1% off the capacity until the battery warms up. This is normal.
