    Default 206 180 .. hows the battery being left alone ?

    Hi .. going away to tassy for this weekends historic races . Was planning on catching the bus but public holiday
    so buses dont run as much .. away .. might have to drive to airport . So i get there fri morn and get back mon morn
    so will my 206 180 start being left alone for a few days ?
    my old 306 didnt like it .. meaning the battery went dead .
    will the 180 start after a few days ? Might seem a strange question but i dont want a flat battery ..
    hope someone has an answer .. thnx

    Comes down to the age of the battery. My 406 went 2 weeks before I started in on Saturday. No problem at all. But a nearly new battery

    My 607 recently started perfectly well after a 2 1/2 month hiatus. And it's the original Varta battery, now ten years old according to the date stamp on it.

    Mine's always fine. My old 405 used to drain the battery, but I'd installed a dodgy amp which never turned off.

    get one of those little jumpstarters if you're really worried.
