    Celestron 12V 17AH Power Tank DC Power Supply

    Celestron 17AH PowerTank The Celestron Power Tank is not just another 12V power supply! It has all kinds of thoughtful features that will make your observing sessions more pleasurable. First of all, we like the built-in handle and, for a 17AH battery pack, it's compact size. Hauling a DC battery around can be a real pain, and we can tell that forethought went into the Power Tank's design. This model is a 17-amp hour battery, for even more power out in the field.

    The Celestron Power Tank has two 12V output cigarette lighter ports. They have a cover built in so that dirt and moisture stay out when the port is not in use. There are three 5mm pin-jack outlets for operating accessories (1 amp max)...a 3V, a 6V and a 9V. The 12v 17amp Power Tank has a built-in flashlight with a red filter cap. It will come in handy during after-dark set-ups!

    There is an 800,000 candle-power halogen emergency spotlight built into the Power Tank as well. It is certainly not for star parties, but if you leave the Power Tank in your car or someplace accessible in your home, the bright spotlight could be a lifesaver. Since this battery is rechargeable, Celestron has also included a 110V AC recharger. A DC power cord is included, meant exclusively for Celestron telescopes. If you plan to use this power source on a Meade scope, you will still need a #607 (or equivalent) DC power cord.

    The 17Ah PowerTank also includes a built-in AM-FM radio (just in case you get lonely on a long observing run), as well as built-in jumper cables...a nice thing to have if you over-taxed your car battery during the night! Finally, there is a built-in circuit breaker in the unit, and separate on-off switches for the battery and flashlights. We think you'll like the Celestron Power Tank!

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • Does this power Skywatcher EQ6 synscan mounts. The car harger plug in says 12V/10Amp. Is 10 amp output too much for that mount and burn it?

      This will work for the EQ6 and NEQ6 mounts. The 10amp listing is just the peak allowable, and the mount will only draw as much amperage as necessary to run the motors and computer.

    • Can you recharge this power tank in countries with a 2 pin plug?

      Yes, despite what the manual says, the current Power Tanks come with an auto-switching 100-240V 50/60Hz charger with replaceable plug adapters. You would just need to have the correct plug adapter or convertor for your region and then you could recharge

    • Will this power a laptop and a CGEM mount?

      This power supply will not power a CGEM and a Laptop at the same time. This only has one plug to power a Takahashi mount.

    • Will this power a laptop and a CGEM mount?

      This will be able to charge devices through the USB and cigarette lighter ports. It is very unlikely that this will power a laptop.
