I was told by an AA guy that all batteries drain, whether Alfa's worse than any other, I don't know.
Since I leave my car sometimes for a week+ on the drive he prompted me to get a solar trickle charger. It connects to the EOBD socket, which on my 159, is under and to the right of the steering wheel, on the fuse panel.
The reason to use EOBD is because it's live even with the ignition off I believe, unlike the cigarette lighter sockets.
About £30 from AA website.
