Question Leaving chargers plugged in and battery

Hi guys,

Just wondering, but since this car is so new, does the car automatically shut off power to the chargers and the cigarette port? Or should I unplug everything every night? I don't want the battery to die prematurely.

Try it ... see what happens, and report back!
No more armchair supposition, empirical evidence!

Not sure about where you live but mine shuts off.

really an easy thing to test - car off , device charging ? (or lighting or displaying or.....) ?

Pretty well all battery chargers these days are regulated. This means it supplies power when needed then tapers down to zero when the battery is charged up. The only time you should need to unplug is when the instructions indicate that you need to do so.
