I know this a question that I could probably just test out too see... but I thought I'd see if anyone know right away.

In a 2006 Exige... if I leave my radar detector plugged in after I exit the car will the lighter plug still stay on and drain the battery? Cuz I've closed the doors and locked the car and begun to walk away and noticed the radar detector still on!

will this eventually shut off? or does it stay on the whole time?

Will definitely drain your battery. I don't know how fast with the stock "wet" battery, but the small dry cells can drain in a couple of days.

So, what if you get a two way Y power plug adapter, plug a radar detector in one port and a solar battery tender into the other? Would that work?
