Default Camry battery

Hi,

I am going out of USA for 6 months and leaving my Camry LE 150,000
mile (1996) in a parking lot. Should I take the battery out or leave
it in there. What should I do about the battery.

thanks
John

Taking the battery out shouldn't hurt... 1) makes the car harder to
steal; 2) all those little parasitic loads (clock, etc.) won't be
draining the battery.

Got a friend who can charge up your batt every month or so? That
would be best.

Just disconnect it


And maybe add fuel stabilizer and fresh gasoline to the
tank.

For $499 plus $30 a month, plus the cost of an iPhone and monthly fee,
you can buy DEI's SmartStart system. Alas, it doesn't look like it will
shut the car off, only start it, so maybe it's not such a great idea
unless you have someone come over to add fuel to the car once a week or so.

Seriously, if the car is in an outdoor lot you might just get one of
those solar trickle chargers. It'll provide enough power to offset
parasitic losses and self-discharge. You can't just plug it into the
cigarette lighter outlet because the Camry outlet is only live when the
car is on, you'll need to run a wire directly to the battery (include a
low amperage fuse near the battery terminal).
