If I let my Note (diesel 2017) stand for more than 4 days the battery becomes discharged. The battery has been replaced and no measurable current drain can be detected.
If I start the car on a daily basses and let it run for 4/5 min not long enough to recharge the battery it's ok.

As I say the battery has been replaced and if I trickle charge (0.8 amps) the car starts ok.

Is there a 12 volt point I can easily connect to rather than have the bonnet open to charge the battery, the 12volt power socket switches off when the ignition is turned off.
I want to use a solar cell charger in side the car.

If you start the car and run it for 5 minutes each day you'll soon drain the battery, and it's not particularly good for the engine either.
Any quality battery should be fine for 4 weeks without use.. (i often left my note unused for 6 weeks during lockdown).
At that point I'd then use a trickle charger or take it on a long run.
I can't advise on a solar charge but I'll be interested if someone else can.
