    Interestingly, my Model X exceeded its user set 90% max charge limit. Instead, it charged to about 95% on its own, which is interesting, and the first time it's down so after about 50 or so overnight charges. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if this is a software glitch with the V 8.1 2017.34 2448cfc software installed at the SC week before last. Ultimately, I want to make sure I don't have an issue with my battery.

    Its begun-- AI has taken over, and determined you will need more mileage today. Do not question it, just keep driving...

    My autopilot took me through a park, using a new routing algorithm. Scared the bejezus out of a rabbit, two dogs, and some small children. Perhaps Skynet is just flexing its muscles a little bit ?

    It has happened at least once before, on another thread.

    If it was happening more I'd think it could be a periodic battery rebalance, which requires charging well over 90%. But it seems more like a bug. I've never had it happen in nearly 6 months of daily charging.

    The interesting thing would be, once it charges 'too high' does it 'eat up the extra' and come down to the 90% or whatever, and go back to normal or not?

    TeslaFi has many great features, one is reminding to plug at night if someone forgot & the other an alert if charge has exceeded a percentage, in my case 94%.

    Definitely going to remember to set that up in TeslaFi. Excellent way to know if the car isn't obeying!
    TeslaFi is an excellent $50/year investment in knowing what is going on with the car.

    The car does that when you start charging from a low state like below 60 miles
