Outdoor lockers for mobile phone charging
A designated place for charging a mobile device. A designated place typically features a sign, perhaps a table for devices to sit, and potentially mobile specific connectors. This is distinct from a vehicle charging station, which operates at a different scale, and from electrical power outlets not specifically designated for mobile device charging.
  • amenity=device_charging_station
  • fee=*
  • lockable=* - station offers lockable compartment, so the device may be left unattended
  • access=* - tag public for stations anyone can walk up to and use, permissive for stations with no apparent enforcement of access rules, and destination/customers for stations available only to paid users of the enclosing facility.

Tag the socket types as follows (other values from http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dcharging_station are acceptable)

Existing Tagging

There are tiny number of existing stations tagged amenity=charging_station, a tag well established for vehicle charging.
