Leaving travel charger plugged in to wall

Hi,

Might be a silly question but I'll ask anyways.

I plan on installing a 220V circuit to charge my car (not getting the wall mounted charger from Tesla). I was wondering if current model S owners were leaving their chargers plugged into the wall even if the car is not plugged in and charging? Does the charger still draw even if the car isn't plugged in?

Thanks,

Andy

@Doug:

I bought a very small digital Volt meter from Amazon. The meter plugs into the 12 volt recepical in the center arm rests. Mine has about 3/8 inch high LCD display and three charge level lights, and the readout head swivels making it easy to read at any angle. The meter draws little from the battery. Tesla turns off the cig outlet when the MS is off so leaving it pluged in there is no danger of discharging the 12v battery. I am always assured that there is no 12 volt battery problem.
