Coming Soon to a Street Corner Near You

I've written before about the neat cultures around the world that fix electronic goods instead of throwing them out. This article from StreetUse discusses Ugandan cell phone charging booths. It interesting and ominous at the same time - didn't know Ugandans use a car battery to power their house there. With all the tech giants targeting the third world, I wonder if they took this into account - will the OLPC run off a car battery?
