That works. However, it can leave your accessories on for up to 2 minutes after shutting off the bike. Furthermore, in a few cases such as some GPS chargers drawing a specific amount of power, it mimics the BMW charger and doesn't let the socket power down, which will kill the battery if you have lights connected to it.
