I had visited Khairat last Friday.  There has been battery issues and it was more of my usual urge to get out of the city. 

On reaching there with help of the teacher Surve we started charging batteries using SMPS.

(DBF (Digital Bridge Foundation) and HBCSE (Homi Bhabha Center for Science Education ) have worked to get these XO batteries charged using SMPS with some more electronics . The details of doing that would be but up on the  wiki soon by one of the volunteers who has been working on it. )

Some of the pics :-

SMPS = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply

Is this correct?
