When I do similar updates, I create a file for JOSM as the primary result,
and using the TODO plugin, cycle through each proposed update.
The hand review step can go really fast... I think you have few enough
charging stations to use it.

Note that my process always overwrites tags with the new data (opening
hours, etc)... but leaves nodes at their hand adjusted position.
