4No LED, but nice cable otherwise
By Harry Abramson
I bought this cable to replace the one that came with our CPC 925, which we use with a 20AH field battery. The original power cord failed after two years, developing an intermittent connection where the wire enters the plug housing at the telescope end. This was especially annoying because I always loop the cable thru the fork arm handle to provide extra strain-relief, so the original cable was never yanked or stressed at the point where it failed.

This new cable is made a bit differently, so I won't know if it's better or worse until it's been through a couple of temperature extremes. One difference is the type of cable used. The new one uses something similar to zip cord or speaker wire, while the original had both conductors enclosed in a round outer jacket that was softer and more flexible. The new DC plug is a straight type, rather than the right-angle plug on the original, which I liked. However, the new plug seems beefier and appears to have a much better strain-relief, so we'll see how well it holds up. The cigarette lighter plug is identical on both cables, except the new one lacks the original's red LED power indicator. Unlike the molded plug on the other end, this one can be easily removed & replaced, so I might swap them. I'll plan on updating this review after the new cable completes its first winter of use.

4DC to Light
By Jim Powell
I have a 8 inch SC scope. The Celestron Car Battery Adapter allows me to view for many hours without worry about running out of my base batteries. Now I can take very long photos of the heavens.. This is one great extension for night viewing.
