Either they changed that or there's something wrong with your car. My plug shuts off after 15 minutes every time.

I just tried with my USB cigarette lighter adapter that has a little blue LED light and I can confirm that the power does shut off (not sure if it's 15 minutes but when I park the car at work and then I come back to the car the blue LED light is definitely turned off).

Thank you everyone for your replies!

I have the f50 and always leave it plugged in the 12v with no issues. It eventually turns off. Car is a 2016.
