Is Cargenta Brain going to drain my battery?

cargenta-no-battery-drainWhile Cargenta Brain needs to use the electricity coming from your car battery, it will never drain it under normal usage conditions.

This is made possible by a special feature which puts the Brain into sleep mode when the car is parked. This way the electricity consumption is reduced to a minimum.

To put that in perspective, if your car battery is healthy, you shouldn’t have any problems even if your car stays parked without being driven for a month.
