    A Battery backup should be your next investment to protect your reef tank from power loss.


    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 can quickly result in a loss of your valued 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.  With the IceCap Battery Backup, you can rest easy knowing even if you’re not home when the power goes out, the battery backup will turn on automatically and keep your pumps running.


    The IceCap Battery backup system is compatible with most 12-24 volt DC powered pumps, most notably the MaxSpect Gyre and IceCap Gyre pumps, as well as the Reef Octopus Octo Pulse and VarioS pumps.



    • Compatible with most 12-24 volt pumps from brands like Maxspect, IceCap, and Reef Octopus.
    • Turns on immediately after a power failure to protect your aquarium
    • Keeps a single flow pump running ~35 hours after a power loss
    • Connect 2 flow pumps to a single battery backup for ~17 hours of backup operation
    • Connect two battery backups together to double the run time of a single pump to ~70 hours
    • Compact and attractive form factor easily mounts on a wall or aquarium stand
    • Get started immediately: power supply, pump adapters, and user guide are all included in the box


    *Note: This is an average run-time based on 50w at 30% power single pump/single power cell. Depending on the pump and pump controller you are using, the pump may not slow down during a power loss when the battery backup is activated.
