Anyone know if it is possible to set either the power outlet or USB charging outlets to work without the accessory key on...and if so how? Thanks

Who can tell me exactly which relay is dedicated to the USB charging outlets and/or the power outlet in the console of my 2018 Honda Pilot AWD Touring? Thank you.

Can't help on the relays BUT I installed in 3 different cars extra USB outlets. You can wire them to an always on fuse using an "add-a-fuse". Blue Sea has many choices, Kussmaul, and some other amazon versions that get decent ratings. Some are made to replace a stock outlet. You could also just cut/splice a factory one if your decent with a DVM/test light and basic wiring skills. You can get the dual 2.4A, or a 2.4A and 1.0A.

Just watch for overall drain when vehicle is off.

I had my auto electrics guy install an alway-hot switched USB outlet inside the front seat console, and it works great. Just switch it off until needed. This will not link to the stereo, which is an advantage with other's iPhones activating CarPlay.
