The charging port near you is a welcome addition to the arsenal of features that Google Maps has and allows people with Electrical vehicles to figure out how far they are to the next charging port.

The map then will show you all the possible charging stations available near your location near being as closest to your location as possible and allow you to map out which is the closest and supports the same port as the one you use.
