Adaptive Charging Issues

Has anyone with a Pixel 4a 5G managed to get Adaptive Charging to work properly?

I know it only works at specific timings.

Ok, so say I set my alarm for 7am and I put it on charge at 10.30pm, it states that it is Adaptive Charging and will be fully charged by 7am.

However, when I awoke at 2am it had fully charged already.

Google stated to try it in safe mode which I did but it was still the same outcome.

Is anyone experiencing the same?

It's not that simple.
Charging for the right amount of time and at the rate charge current will make or break your battery over the long haul.

From a pixel 2 user with a bad battery from overcharging.

Now that I have the 4A 5G, which came in the mail today, directly from Google I guess I'll dare to take a heat gun and try to pull the Pixel 2 apart (which I guess is quite difficult without breaking anything) and replace the battery ... but I sure wish that I had had either A one of those USB chargers that shuts off automatically or B that the phone had adaptive charging of some sort.
