Keep charging device with car off

Post by rfewdisco » Sun Jul 14, 2019 2:09 pm


Am about to go camping to a festival, and it would be very useful to be able to recharge a USB power pack overnight in the car for use the next day. From my experiments it seems all the USB and cigarette lighter points are switched off when the car is locked. Is there any way around this, can the behaviour be modified or are there any USB points I'm not aware of that are kept alive at all times?

You'd have to try and take a live feed off the fuse box as all sockets / USB's only stay on for around 10 mins.
