Does the Meade 606004 have an internal input power regulator for solar panel recharge? What is the input connector type/size for charging? Is there a selector for the type of input for charging; ie, solar, AC line, or 12 VDC?
Asked by: Stephen
Plug the supplied AC Power Charger to a standard 110V outlet and into the Charge Input Port located on the back of your LXPS 18. An LED will light up around the Charge Input Port when charging, and the Status Display will show the charge status of the battery. If you do not have access to an AC outlet, you can use the Cigarette Lighter Car Charger to charge the LXPS 18 from your car. The Telescope Power Cable barrel connector is center positive, with a 5.5mm outside diameter and 2.5mm inside diameter. They do not mention any ability to charge it using a solar panel.

Will this unit power a alien bee strobe light?

Will this unit power a alien bee strobe light?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Meade LXPS 18 Lithium Portable Power Supply would not be compatible for use with Paul C. Buff AlienBees strobe lights. Meade designed the LXPS 18 for use with their telescopes, which all of their telescopes would use relatively similar power requirements. According to the unit's instruction manual, the unit provides 100W of continuous output, and 150W of peak output, and uses a modified sine wave output. Strobe lighting equipment require a pure sine wave output to reduce the occurrence of damage to the lighting equipment.​ If you are looking for a power inverter designed for use with strobe lighting, I would instead recommend the Photogenic Ion Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System, B&H # PHION, the Interfit Nomad Portable Battery Pack, B&H # INNOM100, or the Hensel Power Max L Lithium Mobile Power Supply (120VAC), B&H # HEPML120, as power inverters designed for use with strobe lighting in mind.
