For its small size and reasonable price, this power tank has plenty. Goes all night and then some with my 6se.

Best Accessory for My Nexstar SE6

While I have some good accessories for my Nexstar SE6, the best accessory yet is the Celestron Powertank Lithium LT power pack. I charged it once in October 2020 when I received it and, after using the telescope weekly since then, three of the five battery indicator LED's are still on. What a great alternative to alkaline batteries!

Nice battery

Battery works like it should, bought for an lx90, little did i know the cable would not fit, had to order parts from radio shack and make my own cable, it works but my lx 90 still can't put all of the objects in the eyepiece, still trying to get the scope to work like it used to.

Excellent Power Source for Celestron 6SE

This power supply has proven to be an excellent choice for my new Celestron 6SE. I have used the telescope for many weeks now, usually up to 2 hours per week, and the battery level is still at maximum. This is a far superior solution to feeding the 'scope with environmentally damaging alkaline batteries.

Perfect!

Not too big with plenty of power. Love that it works for my telescope as well as my electronics. Charges super fast with plenty of power to spare.

Great option for powering my scope and drive!

My new Celestron 8 EdgeHD scope with German EQ mount (CEAVX8EHD) came with only a cord for a cigarette lighter to power it. After a lot of research, I settled upon Celestron's Lithium LT PowerTank, and it's everything I'd hoped for! It's light, compact, easy to use, and gives many hours of usage per charge. So far, I've done two four-hour sessions, and it's still showing 75% charge. It supplies 3 amps at 12 volts, giving my eq mount all the juice it needs, and its advanced lithium battery technology beats lead-acid hands down. Can't wait to take the package out for some dark sky viewing! Strapping it solidly on the tripod leg is tricky, but can be done. The instructions were vague, so take some time to experiment on the best way to lace the strap through the buckle to attach the velcro tightly.

Nice improvement over non lithium models

I have really enjoyed this battery. I photographed all night and still had power to spare for my AVX Celestron mount.
