For an alternative monitor with in-built battery.....
Take a look at this device which has a 7 hour battery life AND supports Samsung DeX for DeX on the Go.

Here's the native Android Q desktop mode on a USB-C laptop dock created from a @GetPiTop Pi Top V2.
Here is Outlook Mobile on desktop mode - much better - could replace a laptop in many cases.
It's possible to make one of these from a Pi-Top V2 - you can have it now rather than waiting for one of the kickstarter or Indegogo crowdfunded devices to become available.
More details here:
From mid-May 2018, you will be able to use your Samsung S8, S9 or Note 8 series device as a laptop using Mirabook.
Specs include 13.3" 1080 IPS, keyboard, trackpad, up to 10 hour battery life, 2 x USB, HDMI out and 2 hour recharge.
No, we actually supply these devices (not the 2007 devices you describe). We have both Android smartphones as well as mini-routers.
These are primarily designed for public sector and more security conscious private sector (regulated etc.). The enable public Wi-Fi connections to be remediated (i.e. the splash screen/captive portal) on a low cost, separate device which then shares its connection to one or more (up to 10) corporate laptop/tablet/smartphones etc.
Since the corporate device can apply a much stronger security policy (i.e. closed firewall, VPN etc.), it means that there is less risk since they simply PN through the device once the public Wi-Fi is unlocked.
As the devices NAT connections and have an in-built firewall, they provide additional protection to connected end-points.
There are ways of mitigating some of this - for example, a low cost Android device which enables a user to connect to public Wi-Fi, enter details into any landing page (captive portal) and then share the connection to their main device (s) over Wi-Fi. This allows a stronger security policy on the main device (laptop, tablet, hybrid, phablet etc.) which protects that device from malware infection etc.
Whilst there is potential for the low cost device to be compromised, this is the whole point of it - i.e. it's sacrificial, if necessary.
Good practice might also be to use a credit card with a low balance/credit to minimise theft etc.
We supply an alternative Stick PC which runs Windows 8.1 Professional/Enterprise and unlike the Compute Stick, has 2 x USB ports and an audio socket - the latter makes it ideal for voice and video (USB webcam) using Skype for Business/Lync, WebEx etc.
This device can be AD joined/managed and is targeted at businesses wanting to provide a low cost home/flexible working solution which is secure for data at rest (BitLocker PIN + TPM - the device has a TPM using Intel Platform Technology) and can leverage existing investments in VPN etc. used for Windows 8.1 laptop & tablet remote working deployments.
Able to run standard Office task such as email, Word, PowerPoint etc, as well as Intranet/Internet apps/content, these are effectively Hybrid BYO where a user's own monitor, keyboard and mouse are used together with their wired (via USB dongle) or wireless broadband.
Well if pulsed microwaves are so safe, why has:
1. WHO elevated Mobile Phone emissions to probably cancer causing - we've been told for yiers that they are safe......
2. European Coucil have passed resolution 1815 requiring member states to minimise exposure to EM - this is a precautionary measure due to the mounting evidence that EM does in fact cause issues from symtoms such as sleep disturbance to actually causing harm
3. Current guidance for shool children is to use mobile phones in an emergency only - why if pulsed microwaves are so safe?
4. Other European countries have lower EM radiation exposure levels than the UK/international standards
5. Studies in Germany showed that large percentages of a research group had a range of symptoms when radition levels were increased to well below the internationally 'safe' levels - these are based on warming of tissue samples rather than the effects on a living organism
6. Scientific studies have show pulsed microwaves interfere with cellular membranes which results in inability to absorb certain salts
7. Why do you think the bees are disappearing?
8. Have you noticed how we see hardly any birds anymore?
Clearly there is too much money in the industry (in the same way that the likes of MMR which contains Mercury is 'so safe' - the pharma companies would loose too much money.......) - therefore any bit of scientific study ahowing any evidence of any harm, however small, will naturally be undermined by the industry........it's like cigarettes!
It's all down to electromagnetic radiation/smog - it's on the increase.........
Well the best thing to do is to award the contract to one of the IT Consutlancies/Providers who keep screwing up - you know who they are.....
That way not only will it suffer massive delays, it will prove to be unworkable when introduced so that there will be no option but to scrap it!
