[Other] Car Thing - Power off/Power save when bluetooth is disconnected

First day with car thing. I like it a lot, but all the 12v outlets in my car are “always on”, so car thing stays lit up when I leave the car.

 

Unfortunately:

-Not worth the risk of draining the car battery just to not use phone interface

-Not worth the added risk of break in of a lit up device at night

-I only have to forget to unplug it and kill car battery one time for it to end up unuseable

 

I have looked all around and assume there is no feature I am missing

 

If updates are a thing, having it shut off to power save mode after bluetooth signal from phone is lost (I walked away + a few mins), and restarted with a button press would make it useable

 

otherwise maybe this should be advertised as an item for people with 12v outlets that switch off with the ignition

 

thanks!

My current vehicle, after engine turns off, its cigarette socket power does not goes off if there is any device remain connected to the socket. Therefore the Car thing keep draining the patter unless I unplug the USB. Every time, I have to open the glove box and unplug the USB.

 

The best is that Car thing has an option to automatically turn off by itself after a certain time (30 minutes or 1 hour) there is no audio or no control input to the device.

 

I have seen the similar complains from many people on various online communities.

Thanks.
