Works well. Bought to power a dew strip and it works really well. Leads are long enough it it holds the cigarette adapter nice and securely. (06/06/2020) Steve - Kent

works perfectly Bought two of these, one for dew heater and one for my EQ6-R mount The cables are very long giving lots of flexibility (3m-4m) (07/05/2019) Shaun - Wokingham

Power supply Phoned Harrison's for advise on providing power to my new EQ6 mount and this is the power supply suggested. Works perfectly I couldn't be more pleased. (03/08/2018) B Mears - Gosport
Unlimited Power When you are out in your backyard, slewing (for alignment, observing deepsky objects etc) and your battery run's out of power very quickly. Luckily, the Universal Mains comes to the rescue. It's compatible with majority of the mounts out there. Highly recommended. Very good customer service. (21/06/2018) Deepak - London
Good power suply with car type socket. This power supply allows me to connect the AZ-EQ5 using the power cable supplied with the mount. One thing to note is that the 12V lead from the power supply is only about 1.1 metre and so I puchased a longer lead to replace the lead supplied with the telescope.

Great value for money product. Can thoroughly recommend. First class customer service and prompt delivery. (13/10/2017) -
A simple universal solution Problem: power lead required but with different manufacturers of telescope mounts with slightly different plugs - which one to choose? Solution is this universal power supply with a car type cigar socket that allows me to couple up to any of my mounts and use mains power! (25/08/2017) Paul - Lincolnshire
