More product information
The iOptron PowerWeight 7 pound (3.2 kg) counterweight/rechargeable 12VDC battery pack is designed to power iOptron’s go-to mounts such as the CEM60, iEQ45, iEQ30, and ZEQ25. Available counterweight shaft diameter adapters let you use it with the Mini Tower II and Mini Tower Pro mounts, as well.

You can use the 8 amp hour capacity 12VDC PowerWeight battery pack in place of your traditional counterweight, or as an additional counterweight to balance heavier payloads than your mount's standard counterweight can handle. A supplied short coiled cord connects the PowerWeight output to your mount's DC input. This eliminates the chance of your getting tangled in a long dangling cable connecting your mount to an external battery pack that is sitting on the ground.

Inside the rechargeable PowerWeight are 6 heavy duty spiral wound valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) battery cells. An indicator light on the supplied battery charger shows you the battery charging status. A red light means that the battery is recharging. The light changes to green when the charge is complete. The charging process should automatically stop when the battery is full. The battery does not have a memory effect. 

There are two sockets on the PowerTank. Either socket can be used for drawing power in the field or recharging the battery. When powering your mount from one socket, the second socket can be used to power another device.
The iOptron PowerWeight's battery provides an output of 12VDC/8Ah. The input/output sockets are center positive. It is recharged using the supplied 100~240V AC adapter. 

The PowerWeight weighs 7 pounds (3.2 kg) and measures approximately 5.5” (140mm) in diameter and 4.33” tall (10 mm. Its working temperature range is from -58° F (-50º C) to140° F (60º C). The PowerWeight has a limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship of 90 days from date of purchase.
