Anyone tried the lenovo M14 usb screen?

Looks fancy, but I worry about power consumption and compatibility:

Has anyone tried this with a gemini?

not sure the Gemini would have the power to support it over USB c?

According to the video it is the opposite: the monitor will charge the Gemini when plugged in.

In terms of cabling, presumably you would need:

The Gemini connected to:
1)  The Gemini proprietary Male USB-c to Female HDMI cable,
connected to:
2)  A Male HDMI to Male USB-c cable,
connected to the M14.

Is that correct?
