Charging points are present in Side Berths of the Sleeper coaches of 12834/3. I had 8 SU but remained in 7 SL as the SL pax wanted to sleep on the 6 UB which was empty.. I kept my phone charging throughout the journey. Tight security was there (observed till TATA as I got off there.)

Well, let us rate this per my recent experience....from Barddhaman to Kolkata....on 23rd January, 2018....
Cleanliness: 3/5
O.B.H.S. was present and they did clean the overloaded dustbin after the train departed from Barddhaman. They also cleaned all the dirt from the floor with a mop. But, the bad part was that there was no water in taps.

Punctuality: 2/5
This is probably the weak link. The train is still jostling for priority on its route (got delayed by 2:45 hrs. between Guwahati and Goalpara Town on this run). The Wednesday slot means that it will have a tiff with Agartala HumSafar on every run. Thus, if you want a punctual run, you may have to think twice before choosing this train. But, if you are looking for an afternoon arriving overnight train from Guwahati other than the present ones, then this train is the one.
Food: N/A
As my journey was from Barddhaman to Kolkata, so naturally I did not have the pleasure of getting any catering services from the train. But, by the looks of it, there was no On-Board Catering Available. Just rely on vendors for food (like I had a luchi and aloo dam lunch box).
Ticket Availability: 4/5 (for Reservation)
You should get tickets for this train if you book little in advance, but be assured that the crowd is on the rise, so booking few weeks in advance is ok for the time being.
Railfanning: 5/5
A good train for railfanning.
Safety: 2/5
This is an issue with this train. Did not see a single R.P.F. taking rounds.
