I find the i5 and i7s power hungry if you are using batteries . Consider the M series processors or a celeron. 

Try the latte panda alpha running win 10 pro
More than adequate . Powers off a usb c PD or if u want a 12 v supply.  Relatively cheap too . 

For those who love to tinker this will work too.... has a aduino and gpio ports

Hi
BTW, if you are using an Intel NUC, 19V is not necessary. They work just fine at 12V as per specs.
My NUC is an i5 with SSD, and thurnderbird 3 to 10G Base T adapter. It works reliably with no issues.
Might save a little space and battery power.
