Center console 12V Socket

Hi all,

In my central console I've got a griffin micro powerjolt dual in the 12v socket. I've noticed when I switch off and lock the car, the 12v port remains active. Apart from pulling the powerjolt out anyone know if it disables after a set period of time?

Thanks.

It should shut off about 4 mins after locking the car.

Is the cigarette lighter in the Centre Console in the F30 too or is it just the F31?
