Celestron Power Tank takes charge

The power tank has worked reliably and eliminated the need for replacable batteries for my telescope and accessories. The bright light has come in handy when being approached by wild animals in remote sites. The red light with the flash option has been useful to look for dropped parts or to let people know where I am. The charge holds up well and I have found it to be trouble free.

Crummy power supply

Lousy quality. Lights did not work when I received the power supply. I elected to fix it myself rather than go through the time and expense of sending it back. Had to dismantle it, fix several bad connections, and re-assemble. Took me an hour. What junk!

really?

not like the one I purchased 10 years ago. half the size. No longer has hand sized clips to clip on an auto battery. usb outlets are probably usefull to recharge cell phone. Small bulb did not work. I had to work quite a while to get it to contact both positive and negative contacts to get it to light. Obviously out sourced to overseas production facility.

Poor Quality Product

By

The power tank has a lot of useful features and potential, but it fails to live up to its potential. After only a handful of charges the tank began dying and began to not hold a charge. Celestron customer support is horrible and they would do nothing about it. If you read the astronomy forums you will find a lot of complaints about these tanks for the same issue. If you need a power supply for your telescope you are much better off buying a battery booster/jumper at an auto parts store. Much cheaper too.

Excellent Product, Good For Many Uses

By

I purchased this power tank to use with my SCT telescope with goto motor. It comes with two power source plugs that accept a cigarette lighter adapter. And adapter is included with the unit that fits Celestron telescopes (it's stored in a compartment on the back side of the unit). It also has a regular flashlight as well as a red light, which is useful in astronomy. I've used this battery outdoors in cold weather observing for hours and never have run out of power. In fact, I go several sessions between charges. The tank is versatile and I've used it to power an air compressor to inflate my car's tires. Somebody said in another review that the tank wouldn't charge, it will, it's just that it takes awhile to fully charge. Given what this unit costs, it is an excellent value.

Your best friend at night.

By

It has enough voltages for all needs. 3Vcc, 6Vcc, 9Vcc, 12Vcc. I use it with my goto, my autoguide camera and I can turn on the flashlight to help me assembly the equipment, check animals or forgotten items after a session. The battery works all night. It is very practical. A great investment.

Engineering needs to rethink some parts

By

I purchased this in March 2008. Just recently the small flashlight stop working, push the button and nothing happens. Contacted Celestron, and of course they would not help since it was out of warranty by 5 months. Found out that when you push the button it engages a plastic gear, and two plastic "catches" engage the gear to rotate the metal contact for power. The two plastic catches broke off-and will never work. This is of poor engineering design, since this part is always used when activating the flashlight.

I like it so far

By

I use this for astronomy to power my telescope. I noticed that I can also power some essential equipment if the power goes out, so it has some great uses.

Reliable and Serves Many Needs

By

I have used this product mostly with my Meade and Vixen mounts. The light comes in handy when setting up and breaking down the equipment. Also great for security in checking around the observing site. I got the power tank in August 2003. It still works just fine.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JOHN D  Celestron makes a larger tank, but I have never had the need for more power or longer use than this one. This tank powers my SCT telescope and I have used it for hours and without recharging taken it out the following evening and used it again. It has connections for different types of adapters.
Shopper  Am I missing a cable? How do I connect this to my celestron SE6?
WILLIAM R  I bought my power tank to run my Meade LS8. I use the accessory cable intended for the power outlet in most cars and trucks from the power tank to the scope. AKA: cigarette lighter socket. This cable came with my Meade scope so I can't speak to Celestron's included accessories. If they have that type of cable in thier product line, you could use one of those to connect to your SE6. They may have a cable that runs from the power outs on the power tank directly to the scope , but I doubt that came with it. I hope this answers your question.
