    Perfect astronomy flashlight:

    A red flashlight is one of the most beneficial accessories you can own for all astronomy observers and their guests, no matter the level your night-sky observations may be. The PowerTank Glow is the perfect astronomy flashlight as this will not compromise your vision at night with its red LED flashlight. This flashlight has three brightness levels that allows you to adjust the brightness depending on how dark your observing site is. When your flashlight needs power, no need to change out your batteries like traditional flashlights, just recharge the PowerTank Glow.

    The perfect power solution for SkyPortal and other planetarium apps:

    Explore the Solar System with your phone or tablet without draining your battery. With hours of continuous use, planetarium apps like Celestron's SkyPortal can drain your smartphone's battery. What's more, your phone may not be at 100% when you begin observing. Those worries become a thing of the past with PowerTank Glow 5000. This compact power bank delivers a full charge to mobile devices with its 5000 mAh capacity, so you can use your smartphone confidently to scan the skies, capture images through the eyepiece, and share the experience with friends on social media.

    High quality lithium battery technology you can trust:

    The power bank has an output port for charging 5V DC devices, including smartphones and tablets. The input port is used to recharge the internal lithium-ion battery. The battery has a minimum of 500x charge cycles, so it can serve your astronomy needs for years to come. The input/output ports have integrated covers to protect them when they are not in use. The PowerTank Glow 5000 has overcharge protection, so the battery cannot be damaged if inadvertently left recharging for an extended period.

    Easy to use in the field:

    The PowerTank Glow 5000 has a single button that controls all its functions. Short presses of the button turn the red flashlight on, cycle through the three brightness levels starting with the dimmest, and then turn the flashlight off. Pressing and holding the button turns device charging on and off.

    The flashlight can be used while the output port is charging an external device. Four red battery indicator LEDs indicate the battery charge status, while a green LED indicates when the PowerTank Glow 5000 is providing power to a device.

    Image Note: The smartphones, eyepieces, and telescope tripod are shown for use examples only and are not included.

    Too Bright!

    This is a great idea, a red flashlight that is rechargeable and that can recharge other things. But one would think that a maker of telescopes like Celestron would know that the dimmest setting should be DIM. Even though it is red, a bright red flashlight is still bright. So, I use it to walk from the house to the observatory but not in the observatory. In the observatory, I use the Rigel Starlite which has a rheostat that allows one to make it very dim.
