I think the OP was saying the HUM device itself was draining the battery on their vehicle.

I've been reading on how people are saying their HUM Device is draining their vehicle battery. I'm finding this very hard to believe. First off the device plugs into your fuse panel. The receiver has a battery in it and will need to be recharged from time to time. I'm wondering is that the battery code people are getting and just thinking it's their vehicle battery? I have owned the HUM Devices for 3 vehicles for over 4 years and never had an issue concerning my vehicle battery. It will send me an email when I need to recharge the HUM Device. I do pull the plug out of the cigarette plug for my GPS when my vehicles are not running. Some people just turn it off and leave it plugged in along with phone chargers and such. If your vehicle battery is not holding a charge, it has to be something else draining it or the connectors are not right. Try cleaning them good, keep everything unplugged when the vehicle is off.
My Jeep dealership indicates that Hum keeps the car's computer so active that the relatively small car battery will be drained - car went to the dealer because Hum indicated yellow and less than a day later red on battery voltage. Hum revealed that we had not driven the car much over the previous 4/5 days - so .... battery wasn't being charged as fast as the Hum/computer combo drained.
