Multiple questions: single Click shield? Adding supplemental power? Quickest way to see supported Click boards?

I think the Lin Hall Click board can be modified using a split ferrite toroid to act as a current sensor.  Depends if the sensor is similar to the SS49E.  A 3 bay adapter makes it unnecessarily "klunky".  If just SPI interconnects and voltage a simple board should do it - is there one, like for the Raspberry Pi?

What is the quickest way to see if this and other Click boards are supported in Studio - someone warned me that some are not supported.  Another way is to use a DAC Click board and have the current probe separate.

How do I judge the battery life for something like this?  Is there somewhere to just add an external battery so no worries?  For a data-logging app this thing would be running at least overnight.
