    Back in the olden days of ~ 10 years ago I think was the definitive source of available plugs, bring-your-own charger. I think ChargePoint publishes to PlugShare and still uses PlugShare to generate their maps. And then there's the alternative fuel data center where you can submit stations,

    What is the most definitive database of chargers these days?

    I ask because I keep stumbling on chargers that are not published on any maps, that I would use if I'd known they were there. A whole EV lot in Boston's cruise port district. The ChargePoint chargers at my husband's office which are not "employee only" but you have to know they're there. The Tesla destination chargers and 4 extra outlets for non-Tesla guests at my hotel last weekend. The Electric Vehicle parking at my doctor's office, with 2 outlets, BYO EVSE. Can I submit these to a database even though they're not mine?

    I use Plugshare because it is user maintained and vendor independent. ChargePoint isn't bad but I was burned by a charger that is not publicly available.
