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.
