Easy to install battery pack gives up to 2700 hours of operation from 2 AA alkaline batteries (not included), almost 10 times longer than the lithium coin cell that comes with the Rigel QuikFinder. No soldering required; just clip a notch as shown and insert battery clip in place of coin cell, and attach battery holder to side of QuikFinder with double sided tape. QuikFinder sold separately.

Most amateur astronomers have heard of or happily use the Rigel QuikFinder. I've used one for years and this battery pack just made it all that much more reliable. I've been at remote locations and had one of those little flat batteries die and not had a backup - but even the smallest ma and pa market carries AA batteries and can get your finder back on the job. A nice addition to a venerable workhorse.
