Well, FWIIW, I ended up ordering the Chuwi Ubook. About $250 for the Atom 8/256GB isn’t bad. The pen is N-trig type I understand which isn’t perfect but should work well enough. Let’s see how this works out, it’s on the way right now from Banggood.
Yeah, thanks! Many of the larger power banks (20Ah) seem to support >30W out over USB-PD which should definitely work great. I just didn’t want a huge brick to carry with me, the smaller ones are just about small enough that I can carry them in the bag or even in the pocket if I think I’ll need it.
Here’s a test I just ran.

The update is that the original Forsee SSD died and I forgot about it for a while 🙂
But I now tried charging it from 58% with no overclocking and even locked it down to 400Mhz but it still won’t charge. As riceart said, it’s probably just not enough and you need 15V @2A or something. But it does extend the battery life significantly so I’m not…[Read more]

You might be able to find a replacement keyboard on Ebay but I haven’t seen anything. A simple USB/bluetooth keyboard could be a cheap temporary…[Read more]

While it does not the tablet, it is detected properly when I plug it in and it does keep the tablet from discharging. Which is really good enough for me, since all I wanted was to extend the battery life. Also this is at maximum…[Read more]
Probably way too late but this sounds like the typical symptoms of an over-discharged battery where the circuit will refuse to charge it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USiHsce4vbU
The fix is to charge it manually a little bit with a power supply (or replace it, obviously). Could be something else too but this seems to be the most typical issue.
