- Salinity & Temperature Digital Pocket Tester - IceCap
Test your aquariums water temperature and salinity within seconds with the IceCap Digital Pocket Tester!
Utilizing electronic conductivity, the IceCap Digital Pocket Tester can instantly display your aquariums specific gravity or salinity of natural or artificial seawater. With the built-in temperature sensing probe, you can also know the temperature of the water. Integrating salinity and temperature into a single testing device, lets it use automatic temperature compensation features, giving you the true salinity of your water at any temperature.

Useless By JohnJohnny on 5/17/2019JohnJohnny wouldn't recommend this product to a friendRecalibrated the tester. Worked for a couple of weeks. Reading at 1.021 when the refractometer read 1.025.
Don't trust it. Don't use it anymore. Waste of money/
Game changer!!! By Jaime on 3/28/2019Jaime would recommend this product to a friendI’ve been using this pen for 8 months and have had nothing but success. I use two little fishies calibration solution that is 35ppm and the pen always reads accurately. I’ve never had any issues and love this product A++
IceCap SALINITY & TEMPERATURE DIGITAL POCKET TESTER By Doody on 3/26/2019Doody wouldn't recommend this product to a friendNot accurate. Waste of money. Not worth screwing up your corals for this. Use a refractometer.
Junk. Not accurate By John on 3/21/2019John wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWorked for a day. The reading was way off. Not accurate at all.
It’s in the trash By Hart on 3/3/2019Hart wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI never could get consistent readings. Coralvue was helpful, sent me a new one but even using their calibration process, which isn’t that easy, it would drift every reading. It’s been a long time since I felt I truly wasted money in this hobby... I just couldn’t trust it even a little bit after calibration and I tossed it today as I never got it to read calibration solution correctly, 2 brands of standard which read 35ppt on refractometer. Really a bummer.
Too many user errors. By Shawn on 2/24/2019Shawn would recommend this product to a friendI think a love of people dunk the pen in the tank and their readings are way off. You NEED to fill the little cup, get it full and the readings are way way more accurate than dipping in your tank. There is too much electrical interference to just dip into tank. I get way different readings if i just put it into tank vs the full cup. I think most people need to just read the direction. Based on conductivity so if you are putting it in a tank with lots of pumps it will be very skewed.
Very Easy and Accurate By Charles on 1/25/2019Charles would recommend this product to a friendSo I freaked out like I have seen in several bad reviews about the low reading. I was so sure my tank was 1.026 and the IceCap was reading 1.022. After nearly returning it I read (go figure) their factory reset instructions. After a few simple tests, I put the tip back in my tank and go figure 1.026 exactly. Temperature was also on point at 78.8. This is going to make testing just that much simpler, but I will still occasionally check with my refractometer to be sure.
Not Happy By stintdar on 1/21/2019stintdar wouldn't recommend this product to a friendUsed my first pen for a month, but found it not in line with my Apex or refractometer, I then watched the CoralVue Video's which show how to calibrate it and found that it would not calibrate. So i sent it in under warranty for $11.00 shipping and they replaced it saying it wouldn't calibrate. Got the new pen and i noticed that the values between SG and PPT to be way off, I would think the thing could do the correct math. Meaning that 1.025 = 35 ppt, but know it does not. In conclusion don't waste your money. After the original purchase and return shipping charges it cost me $76 dollars. Should have bought the Hanna for a few more bucks. By the way I didn't buy at BRS but my local AFS who recommended it but wouldn't replace it or exchange it.
Easy to use, however not accurate By Raphael on 1/12/2019Raphael wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWhile this is very easy to use. Accuracy and the inability to calibrate is the only downside. I found it to give readings 2 ppt higher than the actual salinity.
works for me By Joshua on 11/11/2018Joshua would recommend this product to a friendThis tested accurate as I had recent ICP test with low salinity. Always good to have backup refractometer or something else.
Great unti so far. By Rogueaquariums on 11/10/2018Rogueaquariums would recommend this product to a friendI just purchased the salinity pen two months ago and it is working just fine. I would however recommend that you test it against your refractometer to make sure that there is no issue with the accuracy of the pen. After using the pen make sure you dip it in RO water and wipe it off before using it again before you perform another test.
Not accurate By zip70 on 10/26/2018zip70 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendthis tester is not accurate. can not recalibrate at all
