The best view of the night sky is in places away from artificial lighting. Unfortunately, there is no plug there. However, you don't have to go without the convenience of a GoTo mount! With the Omegon Pro Powerbank, you can operate your telescope mount throughout the night.
A LiFePO4 (lithium iron phosphate) battery is installed in the Pro Powerbank. LiFePO4 has significant advantages over regular lithium-ion batteries and outdated lead-acid batteries!
Unlike outdated lead-acid batteries, the power bank is smaller and lighter. You also don't have to worry about accidentally damaging the battery by charging it irregularly or discharging it completely. Also, a LiFePO4 battery does not contain any toxic heavy metals!
Compared to other lithium-ion batteries, LiFePO4 batteries are more robust and reliable:
During discharge, the voltage is much more stable around 12V
Dramatically reduced risk of ignition and explosion.
Long service life, even years without use have no negative effects.
Stable performance even after hundreds of charging cycles.
The Omegon Pro Powerbank is available in two sizes:
Omegon Pro Powerbank 48k: 154Wh capacity (13Ah @12V). If you want to use a medium or large telescope mount all night long with few electronic accessories, this is the power bank for you.
Omegon Pro Powerbank 96k: 307Wh capacity (26Ah @12V). If, in addition to a mount, you also use a lot of accessories, such as anti-dew heaters, a thermoelectrically cooled astronomical camera, a mini PC, etc., then this larger power bank is recommended. (In this case, we also recommend a power distributor, for example PegasusAstro)
The LEDs indicate the current charging status of the power bank. It can be easily charged with the included power adapter.
Built-in short circuit, overcharge, deep discharge and overcharge protection not only protects the power bank itself, but also the connected cradle.
All mounts or devices can be connected with a cigarette lighter cable.
