      Comments about Celestron Power Tank 17 (12-Volt, 17-Ah Power Supply):

      Use this to power my Celestron CPC 9.25 telescope. Works for DAYS!!!
      Unfortunately, Celestron recently redesigned this product - used to have jumper cables built in. Don't know (and can't find out!) why, but I wanted it for other emergency use.
      BRIGHT white light!! I mean REALLY bright!! You could land a jet with this light.
      Detachable red light will blink or be solid on - and it has a magnetic base - cool.
      Redesign replaced older style accessory charger ports with two USB ports - that's handy.
      As for the jumper cables - I'll add my own!
      This thing is pretty heavy!

      I was a problem in airport of Washington,the TSA seized the Power Tank at the airport.
      I could not bring the Power Tank to Colombia.
      The TSA (Transportation Secutrity Admionistration) was left with the Power Tank.
      I recomend to B&H not sell this product to you is to be trasported by air.

      I'm a beginner and the battery lasted through my multiple re-tries and manual adjustments and light source uses no dimming.
