Because it's irrelevant; the noise is the same regardless of whether
I'm charging or not, and I did say that it applied in non-automotive
situations, which immediately rules out ground loop anyway.

By the way, I have yet to try a ground loop isolator that actually
works. Some do reduce the problem, but they never eliminate it
entirely. The bottom line is that the problem you're trying to solve
with those is with the aftermarket component's poor design and cheap
connstruction, which can't. be fixed with an external gadget. If it
were actually the vehicle, then why is it that factory stereos _never_
have that problem? There clearly is a design issue that the
aftermarket engineers are ignoring.
