Hi,

I use a Duracell Ultra Deep Cycle battery like the one shown below.  I have this one, 20Ah as well as a 10Ah.  Both were purchased for the 2017 eclipse.  Have been using them every since.  I now use the smaller battery for telescope control and the larger one with an inverter to power my laptop.  The laptop uses more kWh that the mount.   I use my automotive battery charger which has a setting for this kind of battery.  Can run all night with no problems.

I'm back at square one, the guy who claimed he had a Maxoak K2 was full of excrement.

 

The 26AH gel deep cycle is too heavy for my liking.
