When the car is turned off, alternator is not in use. The battery is what powers up the equipment. I think you will be OK using stock battery for an hour. Try it. If you see it running low (dimmed lights or voltage gauge has gone down), that means it is time to recharge.

Optima Yellow Top is a good replacement for the stock battery, designed to withstand long discharge.
