The name works well for the intended use.
However it limits the use of the tag.
For example .. a tourist might be able to charge their phone/etc in a
cafe/pub when they stop for a drink/meal. It may not be a 'designated
device charging station' but the hardware is there.
Normally you would ask before use .. but it is handy to know so a
selection could be made before entry and asking. Use of the access key
could use used to signify the asking condition.
Thus I think the name needs to be more universal, so that it may be used
for any power socket, preferably ones that are available for use (not
access=private! :-) ).
The value 'power_socket' might suit?
The keys 'amenity' or 'man_made' are applicable ...
