Default Battery Disconnect Switch

I have a c6 which sees little use (I know all the admonitions to come...I have my reasons). I keep it on a Corvette specific battery tender, would a battery cut off switch be better. Your input is appreciated. Ed Andrews

I'd just leave it on the tender, with the battery disconnect you'd loose all the personal settings on your stereo etc. and have to reset them every time you'd want to drive it.

Not to mention that a battery will drain and sulfate when disconnected. The tender keeps it on a maintenance charge which not only keeps it charged, but also limits sulphation.
