This could be applied to an airport that provides USB charging ports at 
table/desk/chair .

Unfortunately the connection will be a vital detail for most. e.g. Some 
items can be charged from a USB post others cannot.

I would think that there needs to be one tag for the connection 
'detail'. It needs to be able to be applied to any tag where the 
connection detail is to be tagged.

At the moment there are 2 keys for this detail


These should be combined into one universal sub key that could be 
applied to any feature.

I think most map users will be after a USB power port to charge their 
phone! So that should be a priority and something that should be 
mentioned on your proposal as it will then get a lot of attention.
I think you will find that the socket type is a vital detail and needs 
to be addressed.

Minor detail: The order of the 'usefull combination' can be better. 
Access, fee and socket type should be at the top.
