This key specifies the number and type of sockets at a charging station, categorised into the different types.

How to map

This tag is a pre-tag and is only used in conjunction with a sub-tag. This makes it possible to use several values simultaneously.


Key Value Description
socket:<type> Count of available sockets, integral numeric. A count of the sockets of the specified type that can be used concurrently at that charging station.
socket:<type>:current Current in amperes, numeric. The maximum current that can be sourced from a single socket of the specified type at that charging station.
socket:<type>:output Power in watts, numeric. The maximum power that can be sourced from a single socket of the specified type at that charging station.

cee_blue Charging station-socket cee blue 200-250V 16A.JPG IEC 60309 P+N+E, 6h earth pin, blue, 220–240 V AC, 16 A, colloquially known as CEE blue. Commonly used for power supply in camping sites in Europe.

There are similar sockets of different current ratings that are not in wide public use for this purpose.

cee_red_16a IEC 60309 3P+N+E, 6h earth pin, red, 350–415 V AC, 16, 32, 64, 125 A, colloquially known as CEE red.

There are different sizes for each current rating, with those for more current being larger. Plugs and sockets of different current ratings are not compatible. Commonly used in Germany.

type1 Blink charger.jpg IEC 62196-2 Type 1 or SAE J1772-2009 plug, colloquially known as Yazaki, Level 1: 120 V AC, 16 A; or Level 2: 240 V AC, 80 A. The cable is permanently attached to the charging station and plugged into a lockable receptacle on the vehicle. Commonly used in the USA.

Most public charging stations in the US provide Level 2 charging at up to 30 A but some are limited to 16 A.

type2_combo VW eGolf 2014 (13058674474).jpg IEC 62196-2 Type 2, or VDE-AR-E 2623-2-2, combined charging system (CCS) plugs, with 2, larger, extra pins for DC charging.
type3 Colonnine.jpg IEC 62196-2 Type 3, or EV Plug Alliance, socket. Note that there are multiple connector sub-types here. Also known as SCAME connector, particularly in Italy.
chademo CHAdeMO Plug VacavilleDavisStDC2.jpg IEC 62196-2 Type 4, or JEVS G105-1993, colloquially CHAdeMO. The cable is permanently affixed to the charging station and plugged into a lockable receptacle on the vehicle. A Japanese standard that provides fast DC charging not available in the other base IEC 62196-2 types, but likely to be supplanted by the IEC 62196-2 combo connectors.

Tesla proprietary charging plug, medium voltage DC, high current, fast charging, only at Tesla Supercharger charging stations.

One of three fast DC charging systems competing in the USA, competing with Type 1 Combo (CCS) and CHAdeMO.

tesla_roadster Tesla Roadster plug. Available at some public charging stations, but generally not commercially.
magne_charge Obsolete, but still installed in some places; included for the sake of completeness.
nema_5_15 Domestic AC Type B USA.jpg IEC type B or NEMA 5-15R receptacle, and NEMA 5-20R receptacle, accepting NEMA 5-15P plugs, 110–127 V AC, 15 A. Commonly used in the Americas and Asia.

The user must generally provide a portable "Level 1" trickle charger and connect it between the socket and the vehicle.

nema_5_20 NEMA 5-20R.jpg Similar in appearance to NEMA-5-15, but has a T-shaped socket on one side, and can supply a higher current. Compatible with NEMA 5-15P plugs.

The user must generally provide a portable "Level 1" trickle charger and connect it between the socket and the vehicle.

Many older ChargePoint stations have one of these behind the locking front panel.
