Product description

This 5-12V converter cable transforms a USB-Powerbank into the ideal telescope companion: the 5V that are usual for USB are converted into 12V as required for telescopes. It’s essential to connect the cable to a 2A USB connector: then 600mA are available from the 12V socket. The cable is 80cm long - for flexible positioning of the Powerbank on your telescope.

Note: Because this cable can only supply 600mA, it will only work with small GoTo-mounts. A regular USB-Powerbank will only last for a few hours. The necessary USB-Powerbank is not included in the scope of delivery!

The 12V connector (5.5x2.1 centre-positive) fits most mounts. Caution: unfortunately MEADE mounts require a different connector (5.5x2.5).

The cable is intended to be used with small telescope mounts, for example:

  • Skywatcher AZ-S
  • Skywatcher Star Discovery
  • Skywatcher AZ-GTi
  • Skywatcher AZ-GTe
  • Skywatcher Solarquest AZ
  • Skywatcher AZ Merlin
  • Orion StarSeeker IV
  • Celestron Nexstar SLT
  • Celestron Nexstar GT
  • Celestron Nexstar SE
  • Celestron LCM
  • Celestron SkyProdigy
  • Omegon Push+
  • Omegon Push+ mini

Customer reviews

Works well without adapter plug with an old Meade ETX-90EC

This converter cable functions flawlessly with the Meade ETX-90EC, with no need for the "5.5/2.1 to 5.5/2.5 Adapter Plug" I purchased separately.

As per descriptions, it must be with newer Meade products, that the adapter plug is necessary.
