Explore Scientific USB Power Bank Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery and Red LED Flashlight
With the new Explore Scientific USB Power Bank with Red LED Flashlight, you will have power to spare for your telescope mount, smart devices, cameras, or other equipment in the field. This reliable rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery has a capacity of 8300 mAh with an output of 12 V that connects to a supplied power cord with spring-loaded power plugs. The cord has 5.5 mm x 2.5 mm to 5.5 mm x 2.1 mm connectors. The USB Power Bank Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery and Red LED Flashlight from Explore Scientific has a 5 V output from the USB port which can power your personal communication or tablet devices with a standard (user-supplied) USB cable. Now that's convenient! The typical full charge time is 5 to 6 hours, if it has been fully discharged. Comes complete with a 110 V - 220 V AC to DC wall plug charger and a power cord with spring-loaded power plugs.
Suppose you use this Explore Scientific USB Power Bank with Red LED Flashlight to power your mount. If you're using the Explore Scientific PMC-Eight GOTO system (iEXOS 100 and EXOS 2), with a draw of 0.45 amps (0.6 amps when slewing) you can expect about 15 hours of running time. For the Explore Scientific/ Losmandy G11 which draws about 35 percent more, you could expect to have a running time of about 11 hours. That is quite a substantial operating capability when relying only on this Explore Scientific USB Power Bank.
The soft deep red glow from the LEDs lets you see under dark starlit skies without ruining your night vision as you make adjustments to your equipment, read star charts, or anything else you need to do while preserving your dark vision eye adaptation.
Being slightly smaller than a building brick and weighing only 1.4 pounds, this Explore Scientific USB Power Bank Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery and Red LED Flashlight is easy to carry to your observing site, or store. The rugged rubber covering protects the battery from minor impacts and seals the red LED flashlight on/off switch from dirt and moisture. The five level indicator shows the remaining power. The unit is turned on or off with a toggle switch. A convenient 2-point attachment point allows you to hang the battery near your equipment for convenient operation even in the dark.
