I've just got a window mount for my sct tuner, like the idea of having it permanently plugged in with the gauges, however I was wondering if this drains the battery as I can see it still stays on in a sleep mode getting power from the obd port.

Has anyone has an issue leaving it plugged in permanently?

I had mine plugged in permanently.
If you go into settings there's an option for it to go into low power mode.

I had it sit for a week with no issues, however I've since removed it.

Too many people are assholes and having that on display in your window is an invitation for thief.
