    Default Power tank for Meade LX200GPS?



    Hello! I have the Meade LX200GPS 12” and was curious what people use as a power tank for this beast as I’d imagine it needs to be pretty beefy of a power tank?

    Will this one power the LX200 please, or do you have suggestions?

    Thanks much!
    Hope your day is going well!

    Many of us including myself have used one of those with good results.

    The key is to keep it charged. Don't let it sit around uncharged for long periods of time.

    Also once charged don't leave it plugged in indefintaly.
