I just found out that it won't be possible to use SlimPort and USB devices at the same time.
Video and USB are switch at the connector.

mouses generally have a lower consumption than Keyboards, for obvious reasons.
What obvious reasons? Personal experience with three different sets of wireless mice+keyboard combos suggest different to me.
But if a step up transformer would do, then maybe a cell wouldn't be needed, right? A college kid could build one from components from his labs.

Do we know if it outputs any kind of voltage right now? I would be willing to try the step us with some flash memory over the next few weeks but don't know what kinds of changes we would need to make in the kernel.

USB mouses consumption is lower than keyboards due the size of the circuits, usually keyboards uses a larger micro-controller, some of them with macro capability and other stuff even have external memory

Based on my actual and previews USB Keyboard and Mouse set, usually the keyboard consumes near to 500mA and the mouse near 120mA

for the step-up question, yes, if the phone spits out something trough the USB_VCC, a cell will not be needed. its cheap to built a step-up circuit, if the guy have a protoboard the sky is the limit! but i don't think he can do one as tiny like pololu does

the size of the circuit itself is ridiculous:



and its cheap, i ordered 2 to play a lil bit with it and see what i can do, but since i don't live in the US i don't know how long till it arrives.

For what i was reading in this topic, some one said that the phone output on the USB_VCC is the same output of the battery, 3.7~3.8V

But that step-up booster works in a range starting from 0.8V to the max output (5V)

To OP, are you planning to develop a kernel and maintain it or just the develop the OTG functions?

For the auto-enabling OTG support, maybe make an app to manually enable it? Or we could persuade Stickmount's developers to incorporate an "enable OTG" button.
I like the idea. Might be a little niche for a hardware company to develop it though. It might not be as elegant as a OTG cable with a battery imbedded, but I'm sure you could just connect an external battery via micro USB to the Y cable and thus you have something portable without the need for a power outlet. Please correct me if I am wrong on this, I've never tested it myself.

Just for demonstration:

But for me is it kind of useless without SlimPort.

Damned expensive watches. A quick Google shows one worth $77000, and yes, I didn't forget the decimal point.
