HI. I have not tried this but am looking at getting 19V battery backed external power supply from BIXPower (see URL below)
You may also want to try DELL AC adaptor 130W, 19.5 V at 6 amps. Part number OVJCH5 $30. They make a 65W one for $12. Power cord fits both.
Hope this helps. Of course "Please follow my advice at your own risk, no endorsements of any manufacture implied"
Thanks for the link.
As a wish list item for th future NUC7i8???, can the power supply have a power on LED and a small battery backup option ?
The NUC does not have to run for hours, just tolerate the occasional light flicker, power cord pulled/kicked out.
(sigh) Stuff happens.
Yea - the power brick is almost as big as the NUC. Need to shrink the brick with a super capacitor that only charges at start and end of each AC cycle so it only uses 25V. It cuts off at 25V till the line voltage drops to 25 again. Send that power a voltage regulator. At 80 to 100 Farads, they store a lot of power - but only at 2.7 V or so. They are just light weight.
Yes - a portable UPS. Though I have not tried, the BiXPower looks like a solution. Maybe as a birthday or Christmas present.
As for size, I just want enough power to let the NUC tolerate small power blips or have enough power to go to sleep in case of a longer outage.

NOTE: the DELL power brick connector is too large. They use a much smaller power connector
Yes, get a spare from INTEL.
May INTEL use a straight connector for the next generation so the cord come straight out instead of crossing behind the fan outlet or cables.
May INTEL add a power indicator led.
Battery backup seems optional at best. Would like to have the option for power outages, being on the go or SteamPunk wooden case with power and NUC inside.
IMO, please a small head Phillips screwdriver to open the bottom panel and the word "charger" under the front USB connector that can be used for charging.
Rear HDMI connector is fine.
Wireless Logitec keyboard booted just fine after Win-10 Pro loaded. No driver install needed. May the same be true for you.

I have passed your suggestions to my upper level. They would be taken in consideration for future NUC models.
Just remember, the fan takes out the hot air from the case.
To be fair - the part about using a straight connector was not my idea. It is OEFVet. I support and like the idea. Space behind the NUC is not an issue.
The 90 degree power connector is not that helpfull. The NUC can not be put that close to a wall because of other connectors and the fan outlet needing space to exhaust air from.
