Just got mine today, might update after a few uses today.

I bought this and had it come in the same day as my Celestron SE4 because reviews said the batteries didn't last much longer then maybe 30 minutes and with it needing like 8, this was a much needed investment. Ive seen some people say the following, "the adapter in the picture is not the one you get" and that the cord or prong outlet holder thing isn't tight so you have to tape it down. As of right now on mine, it looks exactly like the image (a little bulky for an adapter maybe), the cord does not feel loose at all (yet), and the prong holder thingy just needs to be snapped in (you have to use slightly more then average force to get it in place). Again, I may update this after some use if I remember to.

Works perfect. If you have a Computerized telescope, you will need this baby and none of the Scope makers include this in the packaging when you buy a telescope. Great accessory.

This worked but after a year it has stopped working for no apparent reason. It was stored for about 6 months and when I plugged it back in it no longer worked. Unfortunately I have to buy another one or throw out the mount.

Pricey, but works. The big advantage is that the cables on both ends are fairly long, allowing the adapter to sit on the ground when the telescope is in use.

The other point to note is that Celestron will void the warranty if you are using a non-Celestron power adapter. The enforceability of this policy is another story, but I'd rather pay $10 more and have peace of mind rather than headaches with possible blown servo motors.

The piece that attached to the outlet does not stay in place it keeps falling off at the slightest movement.

Works well, but really should be included with every 5,6 and 8SE NexStar telescope. Using the batteries is not an option.

Not worth a dime. Got this and it would barely stay together, but got it to work. Second time using it, it kept falling apart and completely dropped power. Hope it didn't ruin my telescope, but Celestron will be responsible. Is there a warranty on this POS?

It works but plug has a tendency to fall out of the jack. Looks to be about 1 mm too small in diameter. Strange that this could happen on what is essentially an industry-standard size.
The wire IS nicely long.
Overall, an embarassment for Celestron.

Just what I needed to replace all the money I have wasted on batteries. Should of purchase this little jewel a long time ago. It works great with my celestron c8.The movement of the scope is much faster and the digital display is much brighter. I think every one needs this accessory in there kit.

It is working for my Celestron Advanced VX mount, even though it does not have the retaining nut to help hold the male power connector into the female power port. However, initially the Adv. VX mount's female power port was loose and I had to unscrew the plastic cover with the power circuit board under it and tighten the input fitting onto the plastic carefully with needle nose pliers.
