    Default XX14g power supply options



    Guys, I am really not a fan of the power tanks offered by Orion/Celestron. I was hoping you would share with me some good alternatives and personal experience. Thanks!

    I have been using a JNC300XL Jump Starter for the last four years to power my XT12g. Still going go strong.

    Hi Jim,

    I own 3 of these Harbor Freight 3-in-1 Jump Starters because they are very handy to have.
    3-in-1 Portable Power Pack with Jump Starter

    But I got tired of keeping track of all three so this past winter I assembled a marine deep cycle power station. Here's my post on its build.
    Deep Cycle Battery Power Station -- Finished!!

    Cheers and fully powered skies,
