All 6 rakes of KK exp and SBC-MAS-SBC Mail comprise of coaches manufactured in the last 3-4 years and 98% of reserved coaches (SL,3AC,2AC,1AC) have charging points in each bay as a result. Even the older ones are POHed ones and they too have charging points in each bay. Only around 2 or 3 coaches among the 114 (19*6 rakes) do not have charging points so go ahead and test your luck :)
P.S: SWR does shuffle coaches here and there sometimes and the replacement ones too are newer ones having charging points in each bay.

On the other hand there's SR. TVC Mail. MAQ Mail. Nilagiri. Kaveri. TN. GT. None of the biggies have any traces of charging points. The discussion doesn't even go to the low priority ones.

ICF dishes out so many coaches to SR every month but God knows where those go. Last week I saw Kerala's rake at AGC and some of the SL coaches were new.. was a pleasant surprise.

2626's all six rakes have been revamped in the last 4 years. TVC divn has invested all the fresh roll-out it received in changing it's rakes. While what's left with other trains like Thirukkural, DDN KCVL and the like are old rickety shabby coaches. PGT divn is poor as ever receiving all the rejected ones. BBQ is infamous as the one stealing all that SR gets, but where does the stolen stuff go? Poof.
