Power your telescope anywhere with the PowerTank Lithium LT, our smallest and lightest lithium-ion power pack. This handy device is a must-have for your telescope and accessories, camping gear, emergency kit, and more.
Stable Power Designed for Telescopes
The PowerTank Lithium LT is built with Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide [LiNiMnCoO2] or NMC technology, which delivers a steady charge over long periods and requires less maintenance than a traditional sealed lead-acid battery.
Unlike other lithium-ion power packs in this price range, the PowerTank Lithium LT was designed for astronomers by astronomers—specifically for the unique needs of computerized telescopes.
The NMC chemistry used by the PowerTank Lithium LT offers far more advantages than the commonly used Lithium Cobalt Oxide batteries found on the market today. Besides having a longer shelf life and three times the number of charge cycles than LiCoO2 chemistry, our NMC battery offers overcharge and over-discharge protection and can withstand temperatures 100o F (60o C) higher than LiCoO2 batteries making the NMC less likely to experience thermal runaway.
Use in the Field
The power pack’s extremely portable form factor means it can go anywhere from a remote dark sky location for astroimaging to a weekend of camping. When it’s powering your telescope, use the included 2” straps to secure the unit to your tripod leg where it is out of the way. Besides the power cable to charge your telescope, no other cables are needed.
