That is fine, at that rate it would take about 6 to 9 months (give or
take depending on interally battery leakage) to kill battery. It takes
a little power keep ECM and clock current memory wise and then there
is wireless remote receiver too. All thing considered 7.5 milamps (or
about 1/100 or a watt) it pretty good.
Your right I was off one decimal place. About 2.2 watt hours a day and
a car battery depending on its size will store about 600 to a bit
over 1000 watt hours when discharged at a very low rate so 2.2 watts a
day is nothing unless you plan to let it sit more than 3 to 6 months
at a time a lot without running or being recharged..
Probably so.. Local Chevy dealer says the battery is ok.. also took it by
Advance and they said it was ok too... Both had newer testers, no actual
resistive load was used...I still believe the 1 year old battery is sick!!
I will look at a longer term test. thank you
