Yep. It's just the battery it gets drained by all the electronics plus
I don't travel that many miles in the week. I only do upto 200 miles
in the week and it usually most weekends sits on the drive unless I am
away somewhere.

That shouldn't flatten your battery. You have a serious fault drain current
somewhere.

 If it is draining like this there is something wrong with your battery/car
electronics
I have a little BMW 1999 that is used maybe 10 times per year
We're in Savannah GA where it gets v hot and quite nippy in the winter
I have had to charge the battery once in a year - with anti-theft running
etc.

You'll be better off to attach a conditioner/charger that you plug into your
mains outlet - halfords?

Alternatively for my boat I purchased one at www.northerntools.com

It was $9 and works v well in bright sunlight (we get 10-11 hours in the
Summer of unobstructed light)
