    Agree.  Currently working on 4 Intel NUC boxes (Haswell) for full battery operation, only 1 for my flex.  Using a fast SATA SSD makes it a very responsive box, the on-order PCIe SSD devices with 2GB read enters the unknown arena where I/O response may exceed CPU capabilities.

    The NUCs are rated for 12-19V but do not specify a tolerance.  Just now getting into testing how low the voltage can go before failure.

    There are many very cheap voltage boost boards available (1" square) that can go on a cable with limited cooling and probably less EMI suppression.  That, if necessary, is the next step.
