Is there any socket with full time power?

I plugged my phone in last night however it didn't charge overnight.

If you leave the doors open, then it will all shut down and turn the lights off, after about 20 minutes, same as if you've closed it all up.
It's the constant opening and closing of doors that causes the battery issues, because the system never shuts down, and the lights stay on for a while after each time a door is opened.

I wired a couple of sockets to the customer connection point on the drivers seat to provide constant power.

Should be the other way round, me thinks :? The battery closest to the front window is the aux battery.
