Yes, I saw in the CAN parsing that separate case for "topoff" and I
wondered when that would be sent. As you say, perhaps it is sent when
the car has been sitting plugged in long enough after charging that
the car automatically decides to charge again. I don't think my car
has every been in that situation.
As Michael said, when charging on a road trip it would be useful to
have a notification when the charging transitions from the full-speed
to taper phases. If the Roadster won't tell us about that with a CAN
message, perhaps we could simulate that by observing a drop in the
