12V power outlet, which one turns off immediately when ignition is off?

A quick test, none of them seem to turn off immediately, but only after 20 mins of inactivity.

Yeah they turn off by themselves after a period of time. Personally, I unplug everything before I even shut off the engine. I try to save battery life as its expensive to replace. Why spend it when u r not even using it. So if there is even a chance that if I leave something plug and it will consume battery I unplug it. Put that's just me.

I wonder if there's a way or an adaptor that turns it off immediately?

I'm not sure. I don't think there will be one as the car shuts them up after a few minutes.

I freaked out the first day I had it when I saw my car charger was still lit. So my OCD self unplugged it. Now I don't care anymore

Pretty sure the only thing the car is powering when the charger is plugged in is the LED light on the actual charger. If it does turn off after 8 minutes then you shouldn't have anything to worry about. LED's don't pull a lot of amperage, if any.
