I haven't tested it without the SD card so I cant say if the battery would drain faster.
I dont know if it woulld as SD cards dont need to draw a 'trickle' current from the reader to retain it's contents.
At the moment I think leaving the reader in standby mode with or without an SD card or memory stick would drain the battery faster than powering it off completely between reading sessions as that has been my experience so far.
