i purchased a 12 volt battery at atwoods a while back for my se mount. i was going to buy another one for a new cg5 i had purchased. atwoods was out so i went to radio shack, they had one for around $40 with tax, i was shocked!!! after i got online and pulled up a dealer that sells these batteries for $7.50 plus tax total about $15. just wonder how some of these companies stay in business. donnie
That's just like saying that I could buy a car down the street for $7000, but at the dealer they sell cars for $40,000. I don't think the '12 volt batteries you are comparing are 'the same thing'.

It's all a scam, a 40 dollar lawnmower battery will run your mount for 3 weeks...just sayin...12 volts is 12 volts.

Excellent! I will have to get a couple of those batteries. My 105ah marine batteries don't run for 40 days at all with the laptop, dew heater camera and mount hooked up to them. I would be happy with a week but 40 days sounds even better. Do you have a link to the product?
You should get some extra batteries anyway. You shouldnt run your mount, dew heater, laptop, and camera on the same battery. At least get a seperate battery for your mount to avoid it shorting out from a voltage spike!

... i ask about the male jack and how to tell if the center is positive or negitive, does anyone know. would appreciate. thanks, donnie
The plug is the male end that goes into the fixed panel side of equipment (female).
The center will be positive if and only if that is what the equipment it goes into requires. You need to find out by looking at your existing power wart, looking in the documentation, or asking people who have the same gear. Most are center positive - some are not.
