      Must for outdoor sky watchers

      By Abutalib

      from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

      Comments about Celestron Power Tank (12-Volt, 7-Amp Power Supply, 110/220V):

      This product is a must for anyone using his or she's telescope outside home or in a remote location.
      full of versatile options. i used it so far for two continues hours as i bought it new few days ago. The light ( need charging didn't light up )
      that's a very good star . i used it for my Meade LS8 .
      It's torch light is so handy and powerful to light up the dark night while walking to your location or even during emergency .
      Two USB ports ready to charge any compatible device plus two cigarette lighter input plugs .
      Compact power tank. easy to operate . it's plastic appears well made unlike some other unbranded mobile power supply.
      very useful.

          Used to power our Celestron 8SE telescope. It has enough power for 2-3 full nights of viewing without a recharge. I love the USB connectors. We will use it in our storm shelter this Fall and next spring for keeping our mobile devices charged when we loose power.

            Comments about Celestron Power Tank (12-Volt, 7-Amp Power Supply, 110/220V):

            I'm not a power user (excuse the pun) but this bargain of a power supply is working well for me.
            I like that I can use this to charge USB devices, see in the dark, signal for help, power my telescope and jump start my car if I need it.
            I've read that you can power a NexStar SE telescope mount for about 7 hours with this thing. I don't know about that since I haven't done an all night star gazing, but I'm sure it's plenty of power for what I enjoy doing.
            The directions said to charge it overnight before the first use but it was already fully charged. I also read not to overcharge it so I just started using it. So far, so good.

              Provides plenty of power to my Celestron CPC 800 computerized "GoTo" telescope. Has 2 DC power outlets, a powerful LED spotlight, built-in flashlight with red lens cover, carrying handle and shoulder strap, and can even be used to assist start a vehicle (but not when battery is completely dead).

                The power tank has worked reliably and eliminated the need for replacing batteries for the telescope and accessories. I can get two or three nights out of it before recharging. The other nifty feature is that one can jump an automobile if need be! All in all a great tool for a telescope power supply. The RED flashlight is handy, although a bit bright. Used the powertank to charge our cell phones when power was lost in the house The charge holds up well and I have found it to be trouble free.

                    We were having problems with our Celestron NexStar telescope. We wondered if the problem was inadequate power. We ordered this power tank. The tank works great and it fixed the problems we were having with the telescope.

                          This is a must have for computerized telescopes. Without this running my 6SE would have been very costly, as it requires 8 AA batteries. They have to be alkaline (@ 1.5v each), rechargeable batteries (@ 1.2v each) are not powerful enough (total 12v required for 6SE). I use AA even when I am using this power tank. If for any reason the power tank gets disconnected I do not lose any of my settings or sky-alignment. The scope only uses batteries when power tank is not connected.I did find the charging lights on this to be very misleading. Fully charged light comes on within two hours of charging, whereas charging can take up to 15 hours. However, I let it charge for 15 hours despite the misleading lights and in operation there have been no issues. I get many hours of viewing on a single charge.

                              We just received this and will use this with our Celestron telescope. It is necessary for operation away from house power because operation with AA cells is not reliable for more than several hours use. This unit adds reliability and eliminates battery changing.

                              The unit came with a defective adapter cord plug, but Celestron readily agreed to replace it.

                              I would recommend this.

                                Runs the Orion Sirius mount all night long.
                                2 lights - one with LEDs and one with regular bulb, which has a red filter on a strap. Very convinient for camping also.

                                  I use the power tank as the power supply for my Meade 10" telescope. It is especially useful when I have a large crowd looking through the scope because I can position it under the tripod. When I run a power line from my car there is always the danger of someone tripping over it. The large light is useful at the end of the observing session when I generally scan the ground looking for stuff that I may have left behind. The Power Tank is a handsome, solid, and well thought out product.

                                    This is a versatile and very inexpensive power tank. I was able to use it out of the box with only a few hours charge and it worked well for about 6 hours of stargazing and never lost charge. Absolutely a must have for anyone who does astrophotography.

                                      Used with a Meade LX90 - light is very bright and seems like a solid power source.

                                        Since i charged up my scope, i use it 4 times for approximately 3 hours each, and the scope still runs smoothly. With rechargable battery i get 3hrs smooth running before battery starts dying on me. Besides eyepieces best accessory for your scope.
                                        I like that it not only power but have all the other features that are quite useful, flashlights etc.

                                        Easy to use, charges quickly, powers my scope for many evenings of use before it needs a re-charge.
