12v permanent live neededd

I want to connect a accessory socket (cigar lighter type) in the rear loadspace of my 2014 Civic Tourer but it has to be a permanent live. Output will not need to be high as it will be used for charging a golf satnav or my phone when on the golf course. The ignition controlled one in the rear loadspace obviously is not of any use apart from when the ignition switch is swithced to accessory.
Would i be able to utilise one of the fuses(piggy back) in the drivers side fusebox under the dash or is there somewhere else more convenient.
For example when a towbar is fitted where does the permanent live come from on the 12s socket?
i would really appreciate some help on this.

There must be a 12V permanent live in the loom towards the rear, but not 100% sure without testing.

There is definitely a permanent live in the fusebox under the dash, check here http://www.civinfo.com/forum/how/640...connector.html
