    In all honesty, you don't want to be leaving it standing that long, anything more than a couple of weeks and you really ought to think about buying a battery optimiser, especially if the battery is more than a few years old.

    And if your leaving the car standing, the one thing you don't want to do is start/stop the engine before doing so, it won't have time to recover it's charge and that will lead to sulphation = damage.

    It keeps the battery top up charged, but it's far better than leaving it simply connected to a charger, it monitors the battery and applies the correct level of charge to keep the battery in good condition.
