This is happening to me tonight. Did you ever get this resolved? Why is it happening? I think I am going to unplug right now to be safe.

I saw the same thing last night. I had it set to charge to 80% starting at midnight, which it did, but then it kept cycling back on about every few minutes, all night long! In all cases it turned back off within a minute. It's not a notification bug with the app, Teslafi.com shows 35 (!) charges overnight. There's no reason for it to turn back on since it was already at 80%.
 
This happened a year or two ago with the S and X, and if I recall correctly the issue was with Tesla’s servers rather than what was happening in the car.

I sat in the car while it was happening and it was starting and stopping the charge every minute. So if it’s just a server issue it was actually making the car charge on and off, not just the notifications
 
@opencar I've also experienced these notifications after my charge was complete at 80% overnight today. I only did receive about 4 notifications in the morning about 10-15 mins after my charge was complete and I had opened the app to check.

I'm running iOS 12 beta 4 on iPhone X and on the latest Tesla app update (Versions 3.4.3) Haven't had this issue before the new update.

This is a good data point. I had this happen 2-3 times so far and chalked it off as a server issue, the server which is pushing notifications to the app. Didn't know the car was entering the charge cycle each time we get a notification.
 
Had my AWD since Saturday. Each night had a scheduled charge for 90%. Last night, I knew I wasn’t going to drive far today so I set it for around 60% I believe. This morning, I received the barrage, when up to this point I received only one start and one stop. Fired up the app and observed the charging started and then stopped. Clicked on/off with no change to remaining range. Recorded video showing one of the “cycles”. Version 28.3
