Outlet on dash

I bought an adapter from the din to USB. It appears that the outlet stays on even when bike is off. Is there a way to shut these odd when bike is off?
Thanks
Mike

There is a current limit on that power outlet. If exceeded, the outlet will not power down. Otherwise, that outlet should power down in about 30 seconds. On my KB, I can provide power for a SmartPhone and GPS and all works perfectly. If I add a radar detector as well, the outlet will stay hot.

Crap this is the one I'm using. Eriding 2 USB Charger 4.2A... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NY4MRN4...p_mob_ap_share

Can you recommend one? That will shut off after 30secs?

Are you saying the outlet stays live even if there is nothing plugged in to the adapter? Mine powers off after 60 seconds. Didn't try it with a load to see what changes

That is correct. It stays on nothing plugged in. The I hear a click and see it blink then it comes back on.

Hmm, that's weird. Mine just shuts off after a short time like Hornblower and rkschmidt said. I leave my gps and phone cables in at all times. Auto turn on and auto off.

If there is enough of an amp draw, the bike computer will sense it and keep the port live....If there is too much draw, ie; compressor, the bike will kill the circuit like a fuse but then reset with the ignition power cycle.

I honestly try to not ride faster than my guardian angel can fly , however....I know it's pooped by end of the ride

@themlruts there must be enough current used by the digital display to trip the computer to keep that plug hot...

True, but I believe he is only using it to charge his phone.
