I have found a few old Kickstart projects, such as this, which consist of a case (not on-topic), containing a Real Time Clock and battery power for the Pi.

Some have a few extra features, such as a display, extra USB ports, or solar power panel, etc.

Does anyone know of anything with at least the capabilities of the referenced project? (or even where I can buy one of those)

    Did you check adafruit? I haven’t browsed for pi stuff in a few years (I own like 6 pi’s in different models,I just haven’t needed anything for a few years) but they used to carry interesting things like that....

  • Not battery, but RTC, there are now a bunch of them on eBay. No point linking,as they die quickly, but seller autoaccessori-online has many. Again, with RTC, but not battery

The PiJuice HAT includes a battery solution for the Pi, and has a built-in RTC. There's additional features/add-ons available as well.

  • Pricier than five !!! Pi Zero Ws - but it's just what I asked for and I know of no alternatives. Thanks you very much.
