The Celestron 12 Volt 7-amp Hours Power Tank is not just another 12 Volt power supply! It has all kinds of thoughtful features that will make your observing sessions more pleasurable.

It is a 7-Amp hours battery, which should be enough to run most telescopes for quite a while before recharging is necessary.
