Batteries, Power Stations, Solar Panels, Power Hubs, Meters & Cables
Below are my preferred options for power sources (batteries, power stations, powerbanks) solar panels and other power accessories. The ones marked with anasterisk are the ones I have used and highly recommend. The others are what I believe to be excellent alternatives to consider.

For a lightweight and compact battery and modest power needs, say 24W or 2A over 3 hours you might consider a TalentCell power bank. These can be easily attached to the telescope or mount. Some people use one for the mount and a second one for everything else: *TalentCell 83.2Wh LiFePO4 - 83.2Wh / 6.5Ah at 12V This is currently the only TalentCell power bank that I recommend since it is the only true 12V battery keeping the voltage above 12V for ~95% of capacity. See my discussion and review in the Blog section Nov 2023
For larger power requirements and/or longer run times you should choose either a portable power station if you need both DC and AC or USB power, or a stand alone LiFePO4 battery for DC alone :
