Power Zedboard from a laptop

Sometimes, I need to work with my Zedboard while being away from a power supply (in a train), I wonder if I could use my laptop to do that. I have a Lenovo T430 with usb 3.0/2.0 ports and an expressCard slot.

Any other solution is welcome as well...

Thanks,
Victor

Take a look at MicroZed

The ZedBoard requires a 12VDC input and I am not aware of a laptop to 12 VDC power solution. You can power a MicroZed board directly from you laptop USB port.

Battery options?

I recently acquired a Zedboard, so buying a micro is not an option at the moment. What about a 12v battery? do you know any brand that fits with Zedboard?
