Bought this earlier than needed, so I could route the wiring behind and under my New 90 gal. Haven't had a power outage in a couple of years, and new I was on borrowed time. Sure enough, Typical michigan storm = no power. I was able to hook it up in a matter of seconds. After I found the flashlight anyways! Worked great. Would have given it five stars, but one of the jacks, just doesn't fit well. I think it will have to be taped in place for my final assembly on the 90.
You need this By Richard on 11/4/2013

You just spent good money on EcoTech pumps, because you know they will keep your corals happy. But when the power goes out, this will save your bacon!!! Your fish and corals lives depend on it... Be warned, it's HEAVY... Plan where you want to place it in advance.
Great piece of mind, expensive but worth the price. By Jim on 9/15/2013

Great piece of mind, expensive but worth the price. I actually bought an equivalently priced ups and it would only give my 90 min of backup power because or the power inverter. I put that on my PC and got this for my display. The added bonus is that you don't loose your night mode setting when the power goes out.

Well living in michigan and with the power always going out during snow storms and such it has worked like a champ and this unit is years old . When i bought it they came with a mickey mouse plug for recharging it and it went bad in year two but with the great customer service i have come accustom to using Ecotechs stuff like mp10-mp40 eco units to mp20’s upgraded i have never had any issues other that the plug which they upgraded and replaced mine without issue or added cost awesome CS. period will buy more from this company..

Took less than a month for us to a 5 hour outage. I have these on 3 tanks and all life survived. Probably the best accessory for the vortech pumps
Backup first impressions...impressed By Daniel on 7/18/2013

This thing is solid. Nice solid lead acid battery. Much larger and heavier than expected. Reminds me of the Braile-auto battery in my car. No doubt this can power a pump for a few days, as the other powers my car. We should thank theses guys for free shipping. A lithium-ion version would be cool. 15 year life-span with no degradation anyone???

Backups should be part of any system and if you own a Vor-Tech it's crazy not too have this piece of mind. The ability to daisy chain multiple backups is nice.

This thing was a breeze to hook up and is very well built. Not cheap, but good batteries never are. Of course what in this hobby is cheap. Actually looking forward to the next power outage !

Does exactly what it is suppose to do. Not sure how anyone runs a vortech without it (or some kind of backup). 2-3days of sure flow gives great peace of mind. Thanks!

The last thing you want with thousands invested in your reef is a power outage. It's simple peace of mind... No reef should be with out one! - Just be warned, it's bigger and heaver then then any photo can do it justice. Mount it securely... and happy reefing!

If you live in the midwest like I do, these are a must. Once power is lost these little babies kick in and power your Vortechs at 25% power for many hours.
