Default Regarding charging (batteries, not customers)

If it is a modern vehicle, it will have various circuits which need
some small amount of power to maintain its systems. My cars various
computer systems, once fully into sleep mode, draw around 20mA. Even

around'. Only older cars had no discharge at all, when parked, unless
they had alarm systems.
