I purchased this on Sunday. Arrived Wednesday. I installed it and tested it, it came almost fully charged. About 3 hours later my power went out twice for about 30 minutes each time. I didn't want to spend the money, but i'm very glad I did.
Much larger and heavier than I was expecting...

I have had ongoing construction around my apartment for weeks that causes infuriating temporary power outages. The vortech battery back-up has been perfect. Wicked easy to set up and has been 100% reliable so far.
A good idea By Nick on 2/9/2016

If you have vortech pump/s be smart and get a backup battery or two, 100% worth it!

I just got my battery backup working and generally i am satisified. literature did not initially tell me i had to also buy the companion pump which i di also the backup only runs the pump at minimum speed to conserve the battery. i wuld have rather had it adjustable
Worth the price By Andrew on 7/1/2015

This is a no brainer purchase. So is the battery powered bubbler. When you add up the cost of the livestock we purchase for our tanks, this is some of the cheapest insurance. Very easy to set up to your Vortech powerhead .

Had a power outage the day after I installed it. It works perfectly, I have it hooked up to MP tens, hopefully 36 hours is long enough. When you have this much invested in the hobby it's essential

When the weather turns, my battery back-up gives me piece of mind that I'll have time for my tank to service. Ecotech has an amazing support team for their products. Their very good with their warranty on their products. Ill be buying more ecotech products in the future.

I live in central Florida and we have a lot of power outages. I have one of these on both of my tanks to run my vortechs and they work flawlessly.

Learned my lesson about having a battery backup the hard way. Would recommend everyone with a Vortech buy one of these.
Excellent customer support from both BRS and EcoTech By Alex on 7/19/2014

Experienced a recent power outage so I decided to bite the bullet and get one of these to back up one of the 3 MP40s running on our system. We decided it was better to have 1 running longer than to have 2 run half the amount of time. It was very straight forward and easy to install. We mounted everything, plugged it all in and waited for it to charge. The power brick indicated full charge so we yanked the power to the pump to try it out... no luck. It came with 2 cables so we tried the other one and it worked. The cables have a small fuse, so we swapped the fuse from good cable to bad and tried again. It turns out it was just a bad cable. Emailed BRS and they offered to replace the whole thing. I didn't want to return everything so I contacted EcoTech and a new cable was shipped out the next day.
