I hooked up my new Plugshare charger with WiFi. I noticed that every 2 hours it does a quick charge again. Would this be just topping up the battery?

If it is anything like lead acid batteries, then this is called a float state of charge.

With LA, the entire battery bank bus is charged first with a bulk charge, then an absorbtion charge to top up the final 20%. Once the battery hits 100%, the charger "floats" the battery voltage just around the voltage set point, with minimal amps.

With lithiums, I understand it is each cell that is individually charged, but I imagine that implies each individual cell then goes through bulk-absorb-float cycle.0
