    Vehicle internal temperatures can soar in direct sunlight, certainly more than enough to damage many materials.  Temperatures over 170°F (77°C) have been observed.

    Leave all windows down about one inch, and cover all glass with heat reflective "sun shields".

    Barkley Hound makes a valid point — remove all Li-Po batteries.  If you have devices with non-removable batteries, keep them out of the car.

    Not unless you place it on the dash, is direct sunlight, while in AZ on a 120 degree day.

    No worries - internal temperatures of laptops usually exceed 60 degrees anyway - your car temperature is unlikely to exceed that

    Remove the battery and make sure it is in a cool place.
