External Battery for Intel NUC

  mp-leen 12:37 13 Feb 2019

Hi, I recently bought an Intel NUC (NUC8i5BEK). I am planning to use an external battery pack (Poweradd Pilot Pro2) to power it when necessity arises. I would have 2 questions if somebody can gently help:

  • Does this set up work? Has anybody tried it before? The NUC will also need to provide energy to the external screen which is solely connected with a USB-C (Asus MB16AC, no independent power).

  • The NUC has a USB 3.1 port in front which is defined as "charging". If I connect the external battery pack to it (with a USB cable), would this be sufficient to power the NUC?

Thank you!
