I think that device is an anti-theft unit, which appears to "disconnect" the battery to stop the engine being started, rather than something which could maintain the charge in the battery.

But it would also prevent drain if the battery is disconnected.

Is that not the problem, though, (the actual level of trickle drawn) that is emptying our batteries? If it "trickled" for long enough, even through this gizmo, the the battery would still flatten.

I really don't thing this device would help.

I will ask battery.com from USA:

iF -bb- allows a limited amount to be drawn to mainten memories does bb disconet main battery when it reach some valey and preserve battery from total draining (which will be occur for memories and presets in long period) and allow battery to start next time?
