Ecotech Vortech Icecap Battery Backup
Battery backup modules are one of the best investments any serious hobbyist can purchase.
The IceCap Battery backup system is compatible for most 12-24 volt DC powered pumps. Most notably the MaxSpect Gyre 230 and Gyre 250 pumps, along with the IceCap 1K and 3K Gyres.
Power outages will happen every now and then, and unless your system has a generator as a backup, the next best thing is a battery backup for your powerheads. After a power outage within as little as 2 hours dissolved oxygen levels can start to deplete, which will usually result in loss of valuable fish and corals. By keeping water moving and encouraging gas exchange at the surface of the aquarium, days can go by without needing to worry about depleting oxygen levels in the tank. The battery backup will be able to automatically turn on when power is lost to the pumps.
- No more loud battery powered air stones
- Connect multiple for longer run times
- Provides power for up to 2 pumps
- Compatible with most 12 - 24 volt DC pumps
- Automatic operation
The IceCap battery backup works with almost all DC powered pumps, however, if you have a MaxSpect Gyre pump running on an IceCap Gyre Interface Module, the module will automatically detect when power is lost, and decrease the overall speed of the pump to 30% to lengthen battery life.
