  • When I use VirtualBox to run Windows I usually experience lag/slow graphic animations. Will the program to access LattePanda Alpha work without any lag (so just like a native Windows experience as with a HDMI cable)?
Umm, I guess the VirtualBox may works well on Alpha, but not exactly, we will test it and update here.

  • Does the cable also allow internet sharing?
No, it just for display sharing.

  • How hot does it become while small playing games with only the passive heatsink?
We are still evaluating for this part .

  • How long can it last on e.g. a 20000mah powerbank on average use?
Not exactly, we are using the 12V/2A type-C power supply!

  • What type of battery or powerbank should I use so that Windows can calculate the battery percentage?
Sounds like a good idea, we will try to check it out!

Thanks in advance.
