Leaving a usb drive plugged in?

Hi, guys... just wondering if it is safe to leave a usb drive plugged in all the time even when the engine itsn't running? Would it affect/drain the battery?

Thanks.

It shouldn't drain the battery. I leave one plugged in all the time.

USB only gets the power when the car is turned on whether in acc mode or started. If you have a usb with a power light on it, it would be much easier to determine lol.

Mine has little red led lights on it, when you shut off the key the light stays on for a second or so, then it go's out.

Agreed, I usually upload all my music stuff before I go to the dealership, and plug in the USB before I drive off the lot with the new car lol...and then I forget it's there and just play the music forever and ever till I start to get bored and need some change-over!
