    On my trip I'm taking a small fridge plugged into the 12v cigarette lighter and as it will be holding some medication, I was wondering if the outlet is constantly powered.

    It did not on my 2014 Canadian Model S but it does on my 2016 Model X.

    I use it to power my dash camera. Not sure if this is a difference in the type of car or the year.

    My 2016 refreshed S AP1 (delivery Sep 2016) DOES NOT stay hot. After car is left/doors closed, it turns off. :(

    It took me less than 10 minutes to make a jumper and install it to keep my dashcam on all the time.
