If you are unwilling to take dinner from onboard catering, wait till Guntur. Usually arrives around 10.15 and you will have 20 minutes to get Idli and Vada with spicy chutney.

Expected time to reach Guntur is 12 am midnight. See the timetable. Guntur's halting time has dropped down to the half of 20 minutes, i.e, 10 min. The 10:15 PM arrival is not in Guntur, it's Bapatla's departure.

These are really old rakes of 90s. So not all SL coaches have points for charging near your seats. But there will be one near the toilet/exit.
Charging points In 3AC/2AC are to the main berths and not near the Side Berths

At Gudur Junction, you can get good idllis and dosas. Usually the train halts for about 2-3 mins.
Beyond Nellore, it will be difficult to get a bottle of water or any food.
on-board catering not great!

Also,...
