Just checked it again, pulling 120ma still, after the initial in-rush. According to what I've found, most car batteries have ~45 amp-hours capacity before they drop below like 7 volts. So if I'm draining at 120ma, then the battery is down to 7 volts after about 15 days. I don't know if that accounts for the chemical reaction inside the battery recharging it - I assume not. So maybe three weeks - just a guess.

So 120ma is at least twice, maybe more like four times, what I would expect. I haven't had time to start pulling fuses; that's next.
