Hi mark!

I think you missed the outlet on the trunk...

I have observed that the outlets work by just opening the doors, if an outlet is being used and you lock the doors, the power will get cut.
If you dont lock the doors you have a 10 minute timeout ( cant remember if its 10 or 15 minutes. )

In any case, its a smart car, it wont run out of juice at the driver's leisure. And just as a quick sidenote, the battery on your car is huge, seriously my v10 ford excursion had a smaller battery than the f30. Abuse of it all you want.
