"A connection point to obtain electrical power"???

Not 100% with amenity=power_supply either...

amenity=electrical_connection ??? Don't know.

Different usage cases?
I think these will be clear from the type of sockets present, and there 
are multiple use cases.
A normal house hold socket might be used to charge a car (slowly) or 
power a laptop computer or charge a camera battery.

I would avoid this issue.

Tags that could be usefull in combination:
There is no mention of voltage and frequency both established tags and 
may be of use.

Current is not an established tag, amperage is 'in use' .. but I would 
prefer 'current' as that is more commonly understood.
