Why does everything have to be a 'station'? A station is a place where
trains stop, not where you plug your phone in. Plus it makes the tag
unnecessarily verbose, and more prone to errors.
Simpler to just tag amenity=device_charging
I would agree it is very different to places where you charge your car,
so should be a separate tag. And maybe that tag should be changed to
amenity=vehicle_charging or similar.
