Is it necessary to disconnect car battery cables from terminals when storing it?

Report as

Anytime you will not use your car for a month or longer it's a good idea to remove the battery cables. If you leave them on you may wind up needing jumper cables & another vehicle or a trickle charge. I've left my car for as long as 4 months with no cables & when I returned home the car started.

Yes, probably a good idea to disconnect the battery if the car will be stored for a while.

It may not be necessary but I'd do it anyway just cause it can't hurt.
