About this product

Model:  lynxastro_pwr_skyw-mnt_cig

Premium quality, super flexible, cold resistant silicone 2 or 5 metre replacement power leads with Cigar Lighter plug or M8 Ring Tongues to 2.1mm centre-positive DC Jack.

For use with Skywatcher SupaTrak, AZ GoTo, EQ3-2, EQ5, HEQ5 & NEQ6 series mounts. Also suitable for ZWO cooled cameras and other astronomy accessories that require a 2.1mm center positive, 12v power supply.

Lynx Astro power cables remain soft and flexible, even in the sub-zero temperatures often experienced by astronomers.

Each lead is individually tested for electrical continuity, shorts and power load during manufacture. 


  • Over-spec' 12 amp rated silicone cable remains soft and flexible, even at sub-zero temperatures, so is less likely to twist and tangle like cheap alternatives.
  • High quality cigar-lighter plug with red power indicator and cable-restraint to prevent damage. 
  • Cigar-lighter plug rated to 5 amp, fitted with a 5 amp fast-blow fuse.
  • Cables with ring-tongues are fitted with M8 Ring Tongues (fit over M6 and M8 connector posts)
  • 2.1mm Jacks have over-long heat-shrink sleeving applied for additional protection against dew and damp
  • Every lead individually tested for electrical continuity, shorts and power load during manufacture. 

Please check your product's manual for use and suitability. 

Please note: Cables ending in ring-tongues are unfused, please ensure your PSU has a suitable fuse or circuit breaker to protect your mounts electronics. We accept no responsibility for equipment damaged as a result of using an incorrect cable, incorrect power orientation or connection without a suitable fuse.

Money well spent

There is no comparison between these and the cheap cables that come with the mount. Easy to coil, snug fittings, well made and resilient. Expensive, yes but definitely worth it. As always FLOs service was second to none

These are well-made with quality components. Brought this for my ASI1600MM and will purchase another ready for the ZWO (AEF). As ever, superb service from FLO.

Lucky Mistake!

I originally went to order the cable with the cigarette lighter style end, but by mistake I ordered the cable with the ring tongue ends. Thankfully my power pack has connectors on the back to accept these, and I'm now delighted as this now provides a really positive connection with no chance of losing the connection as sometimes happened with my old cable with the cigarette lighter style end. Brilliantly made cable with good connectors on both ends. Works brilliantly, and I'm so grateful to First Light optics for their really fast service and delivery.

Lynx Astro Silicone Power Cable for Sky-Watcher Mounts

I bought this cable to power my ASIAir Pro from a 12V supply that has a car cigarette socket as th Air is not supplied with such a cable.
Does the trick perfectly.
Faultless build quality.

Very robust with good current rating
Thursday, 25 June 2020  | 

Got this as a replacement cable for an IOptron CEM40 which also has a compatible power jack. Iím going to get another one as Iíve just discovered my Asiair Pro, which also has the 2.1 jack, needs a higher current draw now Iím powering dew heaters from it.

Not a tangled mess
Monday, 9 March 2020  | 

It was nice to not spend ten minutes unpicking wire. Normal cables are black and do not store well. This is not black and its similar to a good quality microphone cable, it just does not tangle up. On personal use note, I wish I'd bought the longer one now, 2m in my case was too short.
