*On average 50w at 30% power single pump/single powercell.

In the event of a power outage, is your tank protected?

This product is for any serious aquarium hobbyist that wants to protect his or her investment in the case of a power outage. In 4 - 6 hours of no flow within an aquarium can can cause the death of valuable fish and corals. Extreme weather can strike at anytime, and we can’t always predict the outcome. By adding the an IceCap Battery Backup, your tank’s flow will continue for up to ~35 hours after the power goes out (~17 hours for two pumps). Add a second battery backup to double the run time.

Hook your Maxspect Gyre pump to the IceCap Interface module will automatically detect when main power is lost and will slow the gyre the 30% speed to extend the life of the battery. The module is backwards compatible and will run Gyres already on the market.

Features
  • Power Up to 2 Pumps
  • On average 35hr run time*
    *On average 50w at 30% power single pump/single powercell.
  • Connect 2 Battery Backups together and power one pump for double the backup time
  • Ideal Back Up for most 12-24volt pumps*
  • Includes 3 sizes of adapter fittings

REVIEW
We had a short power outage shortly after installing the Maxspect XF230 and the Ice Cap battery back up. Everything went off except the Gyre pump as expected, the fish and corals must have thought a storm passed, they woke back up after the power came back on.

REVIEW
I bought it as a back up for circulation in a power outage. I have my Maxspect Gyre and a DC return pump hooked to it, It says it will run both for hours. The Gyre works a little, and return pump does not work at all with the power off.
