I have used Battery Tenders in the past on my motorcycle and car when going away on extended trips (a month or longer) in order to not come home to dead batteries. With all the sophisticated electronics on new cars, I'm wondering if this would cause a problem on my 2015 Cooper. Any thoughts?

Nope should be fine, I have a CTEK 5 and never had any issues, just make sure its in the right mode, last BMW I had came with AGM battery, not sure what the mini has.

Mini do recommend hooking it up if it's going to be idle for extended periods... I think I read a month to 2 months. The car is never fully asleep, so various things siphon some power off, but under most circumstances it should be fine. There's another thread buried in the bowels of the forum on this topic.
