i never done it, but i've always just wanted to play my PS2 in my car during lunch sometimes, but don't know what the effects are on the battery if i just turn the car and engine on, and leave it idle. (i have a full A/V stereo system with ps2)

usually, on long trips, it hasn't been too bad with the battery playing the ps2 or watching DVD for 2-3 hours at a time, but what about if i just leave the car on in a parking lot for an extended period??
