Not only is it the right choice for setting up and powering your scope, but it can also be used as an emergency roadside accessory, because it includes an emergency light, and booster terminals for starting weak or dead car batteries.

Our expert comment:

The 12V cigarette lighter adapter has the correct plug for Skywatcher and Celestron telescopes. A cable with a different plug is required for Meade instruments, available from us as product number 10477. A connection cable for Celestron, Orion, LXD80 and Skywatcher is included. It is located in a compartment in the PowerTank.

Please note that current production no longer includes battery terminals/jumper cables.

Please consider the following advice to improve the lifetime of your battery:

  • Never discharge your battery completely. Turn off your mount before. So you can protect your mount from overvoltage.
  • Do not store the battery, when it is empty.
  • Do not charge the battery too long. Turn off your charging station as soon as the battery is fully loaded.
