As suggested by Thruxtonian in a post on here, I attached a standard 12v female to the SAE 2 plug on a Battery Tender cable attached to my battery in order to power a GPS unit. When I plug the 12v GPS power cable into the 12v female, the little green power light on the cable comes on (understandable). If this cable isn't plugged into the GPS itself, how much power am I drawing (i.e., will my batter go dead)?

I'd like to have the cables all tucked in a zip tied, but only plugged into the GPS occasionally (the GPS is usually in my car). Will this setup work, or do I need some sort of additional power switch?

Just an extention cable, but its the little green light that is now always on that worries me. Perhaps this is not a problem?

Thanks a bunch.
