TerryMcK Posted May 15, 2021 Share Posted May 15, 2021 (edited) I’ve just ordered one of these power supplies for when we finally get back to being allowed to get out portable again. It should be fine for a night of imaging. It seems to have enough in reserve to power a modest rig like mine. I won’t have the laptop on all the time and will setup the PI to be the total controller with Kstars and EKOS running locally rather than on an external device. That way the power supply will only be powering the rig, dew heaters and PI. The Jackery 500 seems to have a lot of good reviews and doesn’t break the bank. I know some people say lithium doesn’t work too good in very cold temperatures but it never really gets like Canadian winter temperatures in my area. I was unable to source one of the Beaudens 240Wh Power Stations that Paul reviewed recently as they, like most things, appear to be out of stock with unknown dates of possible restock.
