I am surprised to find out that phantom drain rate for Model 3 is much higher than Model S/X. I've read several posts from model 3 owners who complained about this issue, but previously I dismissed it as being attributed to temperature. This seems to be more systematic.
Is it because Model 3 uses a different type go battery cell than Model S/X?

Here are the distributions. The median is ~2x higher for Model 3.
