Celestron 18768 overview

  • 1Description

Employing a more environmentally-friendly battery chemistry than previous iterations of the PowerTank line, Celestron's PowerTank Lithium Pro Power Supply gives you the power required to run your motorized Celestron mount with the added capability of charging small electronics, such as smartphones, tablets, and cameras.

Its Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery has an impressive capacity of 159Wh that will power most Celestron mounts for up to 17 continuous hours. Two USB ports are ideal for small electronics, while a more powerful car/vehicle port can power larger devices. An integrated white LED flashlight with two output settings gives you the illumination you need to get to your observation point and to help you during set-up. A separate red LED light allows you to perform tasks like swapping eyepieces or attaching filters without affecting your night-adjusted vision.

The PowerTank has a compact form factor at 8.75x6x4" and weighs in at 4.5 pounds. A strap is included so you can attach it to a tripod leg, but if you want to leave it on the ground it has an IP65-rating making it dustproof and water-resistant.

    PowerTank Lithium Pro Power Supply is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tank review After receiving the power tank I charged it for about 12 hours and then took it ou to the observatory . easy hook-up the the AVX mount and the tank attached easily to the leg of the tripod. Added a multi 12 volt adaptor and it has worked well every since not losing hardly any charge :)
