    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • How long would a fully charged pack last with normal slewing and tracking ? Cheers. Tony

      That would depend on the mount, the outside air temperature, and the time spent slewing vs. tracking, but with most iOptron mounts you would generally get between 6-10 hours of use with this battery.

    • Is it possible to buy just the power cable curly cords? What is the part number.

      Stefan, yes you can buy the power cable! The part number is IO-9999 and the price is $29.95.

    • Will this fit on an LXD-75 mount?

      Technically, the Powerweight will fit on the LXD75 mount counterweight shaft, but iOptron and Meade use different power connections, so you cannot power that mount with this power supply.

    • Will this power my Celestron AVX mount?

      Yes, as Celestron and iOptron share the same power connection and polarity. The AVX can pull almost 3 amps at full slew, so it may last a few hours but you may need more power for a trip out that is longer than one night.
