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.

How to map?

Simply add the tag amenity=device_charging_station to a node where the device charging station is.

Useful combinations

  • operator=*
  • ref=*
  • opening_hours=*
  • fee=yes/no (Yes if some or all customers have to pay a fee for using the station.)
  • payment=*
  • capacity=* (The number of devices which can be charged at the same time. The total number of sockets can be higher.)
  • lockable=* – station offers lockable compartment, so the device may be left unattended
  • amperage=* (The maximum current rating.)
  • voltage=*
  • 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 amenity=charging_station are acceptable)
