    Is there any Antivirus that can scan an android device on-demand only,
    that is no processes running real time all the time and sapping the battery like no tomorrow.

    and
    Is there any Desktop Antivirus/Antimalware product that can scan an Android Device connected to the desktop?

    Bitdefender Antivirus Free for Android might be something to look at. It only scans while installing an app and has the option to perform an on-demand scan.

    Looks like 1.25MB in storage and approximately 15MB while running an on-demand scan. Once the scan is complete the process is terminated.

    Not that i know of.

    In my experience using Kaspersky and Avast! i didnt really feel they were consuming battery at all. Usually these AV's only scan new apps and you can configure them to scan apps on execution but by default they only scan new apps which means once an app is installed it will never be scanned again unless you update it.
