I've been monitoring the charging times and the charging power, and from observation I've watched the power drop from the maximum power of 3.7Kw (~240V 16A) to below 3Kw as it nears the end.
It's quite obvious that the charging is done carefully when you're nearing 100%. Maybe it's that cell balancing thing I'm always hearing
That is the way Li cells are charged.
The charge starts at constant current (16 Amps for L2) and stays at that current until cell voltage reaches 4.1 volts.
Then the voltage is held constant and current decreases to some design percentage of 16 Amps. Maybe 10% (1.6 Amps)? I don't know, but I believe 10% is rather common.
