Please check your product's manual for use and suitability.
NOTE: Not suitable for use with the Celestron Lithium (LiFePO4) Powertank Pro (it's power out socket is deeper than usual).

We accept no responsibility for equipment damaged as a result of using an incorrect cable, incorrect power orientation or connection without a suitable fuse.
Most people would probably wonder why on earth you need to spend £17 on a 1m power cable. But this cable is worth for a few reasons I'll discuss below. (1) The main selling point to me was the flexibility of the cable in cold temperatures, and I found this out the other night. The cable for one of my power supplies had gone very stiff at about 0°C, yet this cable remained nice and flexible, completely unaffected by the cold. This prevents any cabling snagging and improves the lifetime of the cable with no splitting of the casing over time.(2) The outer coating seems to shine under red light! Maybe "shine" is the wrong word, but the cables are so easy to see under the red light of my headlamp compared to regular black cables. This was a nice surprise, but goes to show that the manufacturer thought about this.I bought this cable to connect the cooler of my ASI533 C-Pro to my ASI Air Pro and the connection is nice and snug. Its worked great over the past couple of months so no complaints. In the near future, I'll be adding a mini-pc and Pegasus Power Box to my setup so I'll definitely consider more of these cables if I need them!
Seems like a quality made cable, unfortunately though they are unusable with Celestron PowerTanks as the DC connections are too short to sit securely inside the PowerTank's DC port and it just falls out at the slightest touch.
We explicitly mention this on our product page:NOTE: Not suitable for use with the Celestron Lithium (LiFePO4) Powertank Pro (it's power out socket is deeper than usual). These cables are not suitable for that purpose, if you wish to return the cable for a refund please get in touch.
This is a brilliant cable to replace my power cable for my AzGti mount, the silicone rubber casing ensures no knots or snagging. It oozes quality and double insisted around the jack plug joins, real nice accessory for your setups.
I purchased this cable for my powerbox...you can tell as soon as you open the sealed packet they come in these are well made...I would highly recommend Lynx products as they just ooze quality
Quality cable. Used in sub zero temperatures and remained completely flexible. Jacks are well fitted and shrouded and fit sockets extremely well with a satisfying click.
These rubber orange cables are excellent. I need a few more to fully replace the stock ones that came with my Pegasus pocket powerbox, not that there's anything wrong with the stock ones but these ones are perfect. All lynx astro cables I've bought have been outstanding quality and easy to deal with.
This is a really nice Cable, it was meant to replace the Standard DC Cable, which came with the Celestron Lithium 7.2 Ah LiFePO4 Powertank (smaller model). The supplied cable tends to stiffen with the cold at night, and can be arkward. After discussing compatabilty with FLO, I decided to give it a try.However, after some effort and fiddling. I found the cable's Plug itself is just not compatible with my Nexstar SLT Mount. At the Power Tank Socket, there is no problem, the Socket has a compression hump/spring which moves back to accommodate the plug as it is pushed in, at the Telescope's Mount, this DC Socket is a slightly different design for some bizarre reason, and the front of the Cable's Plug snag's on the internal compression cutaway, preventing the already shorter shaft length of the Lynx Plug, from Fully locating into the DC Socket. I can only comment on my current SLT Mount which was purchased 5months ago. I was really disappointed about this, as the Lynx Cable is a first class product, and more visable in the dark. I have now read some postings on the Internet regarding Celestron's DC Sockets, so do some research, as it's worth your while being aware of possible problems. I cannot fault FLO for their complete understanding and refunding the purchase cost. 10/10 for true customer service at its best.
One of the biggest banes of my astro life is tangling of stiff plastic cables. All these Lynx silicone cables are a joy to handle, They retain all their flexibility in freezing conditions and, as far as I am concerned, are worth every penny. I also have Lynx cables for my mounts, and dew controllers.
