A flat discharge curve to 90% DoD, light weight and theoretical long life Offset this against high initial cost and the fact that the support electronics in the battery bank may fail well before the cells. I use twin 40Ah AGM deep cycle batteries. Light enough to carry singly, good service life, spill proof and you can run them down a fair bit without going below 12v. Connect in parallel for all night performance, missus I ended up opting for a Celestron LiNiMnCoO2 😂 I know what a long name. It’s just called the LT for short. It’s selling point is that it maintains its voltage throughout the discharge cycle. I use it for my EQ mount whilst I use another Orion Dynamo pro for all my dew heaters etc. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
