In May, I added a USB/12v outlet combination to the battery (direct connect...no relay), and connected nothing to either port. That was a Saturday morning. I didn't ride that weekend, and the battery was drained enough on Monday morning that the bike would not turn over. Unconnected the USB port and recharged the battery. No issues since.
If/when I want to use the USB or 12v port, I'll connect it for that ride and unconnect it at the destination. At some point, I'll add a relay or perhaps use the same relay I use for the Stebel horn...until then, the leads remain unconnected with electrical tape on them.
