Post S50 new user question

Hi I am a new S50 user and all is good so far...knock on wood! My question is should leave the S50 plugged into the lighter adapter in my car or should I unplug it each time after I am done driving? I notice when I unplug it and plug it in again, the S50 does a complete reboot, if I do not unplug it, it will turn to my last played channel automatically. Not sure if leaving it plugged it keeps juice running with car off or not. Thanks! By the way, not sure who runs this site but this is very well done and informative...thanks a ton! this is great to have available!!!!!

First, you need to find out whether your cig lighter is live with the car off or not. My van has 2 - one that only comes on with the key and one that's always hot. If yours is always hot, then it could theoretically drain your battery.

As for the full reboot vs the quick power off, I much prefer the full power off/reboot. I've always had problems when it goes into that quick sleep mode.
