And all the people who are like, The lighter plug shuts off with the car probably has no experience with any other car besides thier own.
There is no standard when it comes to the cigarette lighter and being powered while off. Some cars power it all the time, some do not. There is no correlation between year, it is just what the manufacturer wants, and they are RARELY consistent. Now adays though, with the increase of manufacturers including several power ports in a vehicle, they usually have switched and non switched ports in the vehicle.
OP, you just got to check and see if it stays powered. If it does, your battery WILL eventually die. If not, then your IPOD will not charge when the car is off, and the battery will be fine.
