Keeps the car's memory alive so it doesn't forget learned behavior such as computer learning, seat positions, mirror positions, radio stations, etc. etc.

Keep in mind that this will not work of the fuse for the OBDII connection is blown so here's what you do.

1> Plug it in to the OBDII port. Make sure its LED lights up when you do. If not then the OBDII port has a wiring issue or a blown fuse.

2> Plug the round end into the battery saver (or another vehicle with a 12v recepticle).

3> Unplug the OBDII connector. Make sure the LED stays lit. If not then you don't have power coming from the battery saver end.

4> Plug the OBDII connector back in. Make sure the key is OFF and all lights/accessories are OFF and now you can disconnect the battery. Be careful as the positive terminal will still have some power going to it.

Not really sure if this connector works when plugged in to external power/another car or battery. I tried this on my Nissan Altima and blew the OBD2 fuse right after I supplied power from another car. This might work with some other make or model car but have not tried it after that incident.

This is a must have because I know someone with a TOYOTA SUV that had work done at PEP BOYS ( first mistake ) they disconnected the battery without maintaining the power to the car ( second mistake) the AC would not work because the computer had to be reset only done at TOYOTA dealer for $150,00. Product was very well made because it was made by a very good company CLORE Automotive

Works great.I was planning on getting a basic cigarette plug memory savor with no OBD port at the end, then I remembered that the power is cut off to the cigarette lighter when the car is turned off. So I sprung for this gadget. This device is one of those oddball tools that you will only need once or twice in the life of your car when you need to change the battery. But when you need it. You NEED it. I had read stories of the memory getting corrupted or erased and having to go through a retraining period for the engine and transmission. This thing prevented that wasted calibration time.

Pros: Works as described. Saved the memory on my 2009 GMC Acadia.

Cons: Cable is too short to connect to another car to retain the memory. (Paper recommends to use a portable battery pack/jumper with a cigarette lighter plug)

Overal a great product that saved calibration time. With the exception of the cord, I would recommend this product to friends and family.

Used to change battery on 2008 Toyota Highlander Sport. Worked very well. No lost data or problems of any kind. I inserted Solar plug partly into cars port so light didn't come on and not plugged into jumper battery (placed jumper battery on drivers seat). Removed battery hold down and checked batter cable nuts to be sure they were not frozen in place. Waited 25 minutes for things like "RAP" (retained accessory power) to time out, leaned through open driver side window and inserted Solar plug the rest of the way into car socket and Solar light came on. Plugged "cigarette lighter" end of Solar into jumper battery on the drivers seat (checked jumper battery voltage before beginning). Made sure the positive and negative battery cables were wrapped in a couple old work shirts so they wouldn't short to anything, and swapped batteries. Reconnected battery cables (plus then minus) and checked radio setting and made sure the vehicle started. No problems at all.

So far I've had limited success with this connector. I've blown fuses on occasion and am wondering if it has to do with the excessive draw on the battery when I'm disconnecting it. Late model vehicles can take upwards of 45 minutes to completely power down after the vehicle is shut off. In my line of work I really don't have the time to wait that long for a standard battery R&R. Any input on this is appreciated.

I bought a Schumacher mini jumper that comes with an accessory port. From time to time when I do get a lot of failed batteries at work, another technician may be using our EZ Red Memory Saver. With this memory saver connector, I can turn my jumper pack into a memory saver like the EZ Red. I do not want to overload and burn the wires on the ESA30 so I make sure the handbrake is up (turn off DRL), and keys out of the ignition (to make sure PCM and DRL sleeps). I plug the OBD2 connector to the vehicle then I exit and close the door to make sure all lights inside the vehicle are off even the cluster. Through the drivers window, I connect the accessory end of ESA30 to the jumper that's on the drivers seat. New vehicle with advanced body communication lines and computer operated features has higher amperage draw if not asleep. By taking these precautions I avoided the possibility of a electrical fire due to wires burning. You wondering why I go through all this? I used a portable battery pack with a OBD2 memory saver similar to this that wasn't fused. Due to the high draw from a newer vehicle, the wires lit on fire and blown a fuse in the car. I bought a Matco brand, that was fused but there was an open or damage to the board that the fuse holder was on. So far so good. Just make sure everything is off.
