Greate Product beats buying batteries

Used it for over 7 hours and it worked great. Battery still had charge even though it was cold.

I ordered this and when I opened it up to put it on the charger it started not working. The unit itself didn't hold enough charge to use my telescope, then the small flashlight on top quit working. Nothing that adjusting the bulb didn't fix. That is why I marked this unit as poor construction.

I have since then gotten a replacement and so far that works great. I like how the flashlight part tilts down. It now has more than enough juice to power my telescope. So even with the first one being faulty I am pleased with this and feel it is still a must if you need power for your telescope. Sure better than going through batteries.

        Bought this because I bought the Celestron Nexstar 5 SE. It charges in less than a day, it provides the needed power to drive the telescope mount motor, and is not overly heavy or cumbersome. It includes a car lighter charger which doubles to power the telescope. My version is not as pictured, it has USB charging ports instead of the pictured ports -- I find this much more useful.

            Customer Q & A

            1 - 5 of 8
                1   2      

            Q1: Does this recharge from power supply in the house and if so is the plug a 3 pin for UK use and how long does it last with the main light on with telescope plugged in?

            A: The PowerTank for use in the UK may require a US to Euro adapter depending on your setup in your home. These adapters are very inexpensive. The PowerTank will power a telescope for 30+ hours. The light will dramatically reduce this, but you would not want the light on while observing. This unit is fantastic for using your telescope where a cord is not convenient. It also saves so much money on batteries!

            Q2: Do I need a car (cigarette lighter) adapter to connect this to my Celestron Nexstar 4, or is the AC adapter listed for the telescope? Sorry, but the description is a bit confusing...

            A: The Power Tank comes with everything you need to power the NexStar series telescopes. The Car Adapter is included with the power tank.

            Q3: How many hours does the battery or the power tank last?

            A: It will depend on the scope that is being used and the draw the telescope has. Most of the basic GOTO telescopes will operate for 30+ hours on the PowerTank.

            Q4: Is the AC adapter rated for 220V ?

            A: The AC adapter is 110 Volts.

            Q5: I have misplaced the AC 15V charging adapter. Can I order a replacement adapter?

            A: Replacement parts are available directly from Celestron. Here's the URL of their customer support page so you can make arrangements. Just paste the URL into your browser's address window: http://www.celestron.com/support/sup-req.php
