This morning I learned my first lesson in the Element. I need to figure out a way to keep my iPhone charging while I am sleeping. I woke up 10 mins late for work, due to a dead iPhone. Initially, you can charge the iPhone in the 12v socket, but the problem with that is the keys have in be in the ON position while in the ignition. If you leave the keys in the ignition, you run the risk of someone trying break in and steal your car.
