I’ve recently come across and mapped a NIO battery swap facility. It looks pretty much like the one in this video: NIO Launches First Power Swap Station 2.0: See Video How It Works.
I did not find any information on the wiki about such stations, so I improvised
amenity=battery_swap. That seems like a nice companion to
Afterwards, I’ve found two relevant mapped entities using a different tagging: An identical(?) NIO station, and some sort of e-bike battery swap. They use
For the NIO station I observed, using
amenity=charging_station feels a bit off to me, since it is not at all possible to charge an electric car there. Also, the well established practices of tagging sockets, output power etc. that is documented on Tag:amenity=charging_station - OpenStreetMap Wiki, will probably never be relevant for this kind of facility. Conversely, when swappable batteries become standardized we might want to describe those, but that will be relevant to stations where you plug in to charge.
Did I miss something? Maybe many NIO stations have been already tagged in a way I did not discover? Or maybe some good arguments for overloading
amenity=charging_station with something that is not quite charging?
