    Hi
    Iím getting a usb/cigarette lighter connection, Iíve been told that even when not in use and engine not running they still drain the battery
    The one Iíve chosen has an on/off switchÖ.silly question, but when off, will that stop the battery drain?
    Thanks

    Easy option would be to wire it to a switched feed (sidelight, tail light, topbox -if you have the relay, etc). Then the question goes away.
    Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
