Kit to use Sharper Image 7" TV as External Monitor for IC-7000

Does anybody remember the name/call of the fellow
who put these kits together years ago?  I had the info
several years ago when I bought one of those kits, but
can't remember where I stashed it.

I think I have located and ordered all of the needed pieces
on eBay to build a clone of that kit and that would work
for ANY monitor or TV that has a composite video input.
The 7" size seems to work well for my Field Day Go-Box,
but any monitor up to the width of the 7000 would fit
nicely on top of the rig and have great visibility and similar
resolution.

Does anybody remember what battery to use for the
internal battery of that TV (Model TSI-LCD7PTSD).

I think the TV might be made by Haier. I searched for the model number and found the battery on Amazon a couple of years ago. I don’t remember the model of the battery.

Having said that, I have two of these 7” TVs. I use one without a battery with my deployment case. I power it from a lead I made with powerpoles on one end and use the station power source.

It does attract attention.

I have a small TV that I used when I had my IC-7000. It currently needs a battery. If you are interested you can have it for the price of whatever USPS Priority box cost it takes. 
If interested I can see of I can send you a picture and model number.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/314056349551 is all I use and the resolution is good enough for that size using the simple lead from the 7000. Not heard of the 'sharper' kit though - the 7000 already puts out a standard composite video signal, nor why you would need a battery as you can just use the 12v supply for the rig?

Regarding a battery pack, I would also like to be able to use it as originally intended!
