Well, I really use my car. I have rear cabled for mobile office. There are times when I idle for four hours while I work in the rear seat.

The trick, that I found, is to just leave the car on idle whenever you are using it. The battery holds up fine after two years.

The rear entertainment will power on immediately without having to start the engine. This is a nice feature for impatient kiddos. Nevertheless, if you are using anything in the car, keep the motor running. So long as its in a place that won't asphyxiate you.
