... <snip ... Or, are all of the power ports in the ford fusion hybrid only powered on when the ignition is on. ...<snip> ...
Hate to tell you this but the 12V socket has ALWAYS been a switched socket as far back as I can recall. I used to plug my CB into it in the '80s (Plymouth Sport Satellite and Fury) and it ALWAYS shut off when ignition was turned off. It would work in accessory mode, tho. My '69 Torino GT was same way as were all other cars in between these.
The 12V is not immediate loss of power ... it does stay on for some time after ignition off. But if I'm charging my phone, I'm also not leaving it in the car when I exit. Therefore whether or not the socket is active is a moot point for me.
