Quote:I have a ETX80 backpack scope I bought about a month ago. I had one of the first ETX125 1990something and forgot about the rechargeable battery issues, can't use em.I need a light way to power this scope. Could I add 2 more batteries and find a 8 battery holder? I hike in the mountains and would be nice to use it as I was hoping. I just ordered the AC adapter for when I am new 110 but I refuse to by batteries that end up in the recycle bin as trash.

Quote:Get thee to Wal-Mart or Pep Boys or Harbor Freight and pick up an automotive jump start battery. Really doesn't get more perfect for a scope: carrying handle, built in charger, light for when you are ready to disassemble the scope, cigarette style plugs. Most are about 17ah, which will run your mount all night.
