- Battery Backup - IceCap
The IceCap Battery backup system is compatible for most 12-24 volt DC powered pumps. Most notably the MaxSpect Gyre 130 and Gyre 150 pumps
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
Battery backup modules are one of the best investments any serious hobbyist can purchase.
The IceCap battery backup works with almost all DC powered pumps, however if you have a MaxSpect Gyre pump running on a 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.

Every reefer should have one By Dave on 12/13/2016Dave would recommend this product to a friendI am in the process of automating my tank. To protect my livestock the Ice Cap backup battery is essential.
why would anyone be without this life saver? By charles on 3/15/2016charles would recommend this product to a friendThis is a little insurance that any reefer should have. Its nice to know that during a power outage my tank circulation will still be maintained.

This can be connected directly to the Gyre without the need for the Ice Cap Module. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Can I use this battery with IceCap 3K Gyre in order to prevent a power outage? Thank you in advance.
The 3K Gyre is compatible with the Ice Cap battery backup and when connected will maintain water flow in the event of a power outage.
According to CoralVue (Maxspect distributor), the IceCap Battery Backup will work with all Gyre models, including the new XF250.
Have a great day!
Without the interface module the intensity of the pump will not change. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Battery Backup will turn on however it will not enter power saving mode and simply run the pump at full force until the battery dies.
