Product Description

While this fully solid state universal AC to DC power supply has the high power output needed to operate the Losmandy Gemini 2 go-to drive system only. It weighs only one pound, including cables (a 6' detachable power supply to household AC cable and a permanently-attached 4' power supply to 5.5mm center positive female plug for connection to your Gemini 2).

The AC power input can range from 110 to 240 VAC at 50-60Hz. The ACDC power supply draws 2 amps. Its DC power output is a nominal 15 VDC with a maximum 4.3 amp capacity.

Like all AC to DC adapters, this Losmandy adapter includes a lawyer-mandated warning not to use the adapter outdoors (where it might get wet). We have yet to hear of anyone turning themselves into toast because they used their adapter outdoors and got dew on it, but the scope and adapter manufacturers (and we) feel more comfortable exonerating ourselves from any possible liability in advance. Don't say we didn't warn you.

A little common sense might be in order when using the adapter. If used with an extension cord outdoors to reach your household power, do not use the adapter where the adapter/extension cord interface can accidentally be dragged into a swimming pool or puddle of standing water. Do not lay the adapter/cord interface on dew-soaked grass that might short out the adapter or on grass where dew might be expected to form as the evening progresses. Damage to you, the adapter, and/or your telescope that is not covered by your AC adapter and telescope warranties can occur in such a case.

Placing the adapter/extension cord interface on a hard piece of insulating material (cardboard, an old rubber bathmat, etc.), putting the adapter /cord interface inside a plastic sandwich bag and zipping it shut with only the cables coming through the mouth of the bag, or suspending the adapter and cord from the telescope tripod so that the adapter can't come in contact with dew-soaked grass might help alleviate the concerns of the ultra-cautious.
