No, that one eventually goes off too. I have my V1 connected to it and I'm using this outlet because it switches off after a few minutes - open or locked doors is the same

Going back on topic: this is just a deficiency of the novel charging system BMW developed to save a few ounces of gas. This is simply another flaw of the F10 - why should anyone have to use a trickle charger to avoid replacing the battery every few months?
