Is there a DIY for E91 Trunk 12V cigarette (AUX) socket constant power?

I can understand that it won't be juiced without the key fob inserted, however it's not juiced at all unless the engine is on! Found this the hard way going car camping and trying to inflate a mattress -- I thought I had blown a fuse or my 12V inflator was kaput.

Just curious if someone has changed their serpentine belt on a 335. Looks really tight in there and with the intercooler piping in the way. Didnt want to make a 30 minute job into a 3 hour job.
