The best power banks can power our devices in any location. We expect more and more from our electronic devices when we’re out in the field. An astronomer or astrophotographer’s kit bag will feature an array of electronic devices like headlamps, lens heaters, GoTo Mounts and star trackers. Even smartphones are used for star-tracking apps and remote shutters. None of these things hold their charge forever, and no one wants to cut their observation session short because they’ve run out of power.

This is where power banks come into their own. We’ve scouted the market for the power banks that we think are most appropriate for astronomers and astrophotographers.
