The new Lithium Phosphate (LiFePO4) portable power pack from Celestron keeps your telescopes, mounts smartphones, tablets, GPS, cameras and other USB-powered devices powered and charged. The ideal outdoor portable-charging solution for all electronic gear.
Lithium Powertank Features:

  • Portable power pack for your computerised GOTO telescope using Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) chemistry.

  • Plug fits Celestron, Skywatcher, iOptron and most other mounts too!

  • Smaller, lighter, safer, and easier to maintain than lithium-ion and sealed lead acid designs.

  • Up to 2000 charge cycles - 4x times more than lithium-ion & 7x more than sealed lead-acid designs.

  • Un-recharged shelf life of up to 10 years - 3x better than lithium-ion and 10 times better than sealed lead-acid designs.

  • Environmentally friendly - Does not use toxic heavy metals.

  • 86.4 Wh equivalent to approximately 7.2Ah when running at 12v.

The Lithium Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery chemistry has significant advantages over other battery chemistries:

  • Battery performance of the PowerTank Lithium degrades at a much slower pace than other chemistries.

  • LiFePO4 has an un-recharged shelf life of 10 years compared to 3 years for the Lithium Ion and 6-9 months for a Sealed Lead-Acid battery.

  • LiFePO4 can be charged and discharged 2000 times compared to only 500 for a Lithium Ion battery and 300 for sealed lead-acid designs.  

  • LiFePO4 uses phosphates instead of environmentally hazardous elements like cobalt or lead commonly found in other rechargeable batteries.

  • Can withstand higher temperatures than lithium-ion designs and will not be a fire danger if accidentally punctured.

  • This combined with its rugged design make it the perfect outdoor power supply.
