The Celestron Power Tank portable power source is a must-have accessory for any astronomer. Compatible with all Celestron computerized telescopes, the Power Tank also works with Meade telescopes when used with an adapter. The smaller of two Power Tank models, the Celestron Power Tank 7 contains a rechargeable, 7 amp-hour battery to provide long-lasting power in a lightweight, grab-and-go package. This unit features two onboard 12V cigarette lighter ports and two USB ports that you can use to charge smartphones, tablets, and other devices.
The Power Tank includes two onboard flashlights, a small red safety light that preserves night vision while stargazing and a bright white LED spotlight that makes cleanup easy. At the end of your observing session, plug Power Tank into your car's cigarette lighter socket or a regular AC outlet to recharge.

Q1: 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.
Q2: 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!
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: I have a Celestron C 10 N reflector telescope - which has never seen use as we are preparing a permanent place for its use. Will the Power Tank 12V Power Supply work with it. Do I need an adapter?
A: The Power Tank power supply will work just fine with the C10N GT telescope; no adapter will be needed.
Q5: I have a Meade DS114, which has a 15V electronic drive motor. Is there an adapter that will allow me to use the Power Tank as a power source?
A: The Power Tank should serve very well. The Meade folks assure us that the DS-114's electronics will do just fine with a 12-volt power supply.
Q6: 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
Q7: If I have a Celestron 130 NexStar SLT do I need to get the #607 power cord because I already bought this product and it does not come with that power cord, do I need to get it?
A: You don't need the Meade #607 power cord if you have a Celestron telescope. Instead, you'll want the Car Battery Adapter for all Nexstars. Here's the URL; just paste it into your browser's address window: http://telescopes.com/products/celestron-car-battery-adapter-for-all-nexstars-12047.html.
Q8: Is the AC adapter rated for 220V ?
A: The AC adapter is 110 Volts.
