    Link just went to their main page. Just walked outside to my car completely dead after leaving the Trinity plugged in for about 2 whole months.

    Even without the trinity plugged in there is a good chance your battery would be dead after sitting for two months, especially if you have the security system armed. The first year I stored my car for the winter I checked on it after about a month and the battery was getting very low. Went right out and picked up a Battery Tender and kept it hooked up for the remainder of the storage time after that.

    Even with the Trinity timer set correctly, the sleep current drain on mine is about 100mA (0.1Amps). Added to the normal 30mA drain of the car, this will kill a typical fully charged battery in 2-3 weeks. Unplug your Trinity if you are parking the car for more than a few days.

    I wasn't clear, I meant plugged into my car- never unplugged- with daily driving. The couple days leading up to it being dead, it started really hard. I have just left it unplugged, and not had any issues. Not sure why it took a couple months (with daily driving) to drain the battery, or why the driving didn't keep it up. Everything has been good for a couple weeks now with it unplugged. Found it weird.

    What is the Sleep Time set to on your Trinity? Under Options.

    I had to install a on/off switch because it killed my battery.
