- 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.

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
Don't trust it By JJ on 9/27/2018JJ wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought this product in June '18, at first it was great and read accurately. From what I can tell the accuracy faded slowly over time. By the end of September my corals were looking very stressed, I tested with a refractometer and the salinity was 1.035. The tester was reading the tank at 1.021. If you are using this product, I highly recommend you check accuracy against a calibration solution often.
Ice cap By Robert on 9/19/2018Robert wouldn't recommend this product to a friendwell i purchased a Ice cap salinity/temp tester, using call fluid, my refractometer reads 35.0 apex reads 35.1, and the ice cap reads 32.2 way off in my opinion!
Very Inaccurate By Ramon on 8/13/2018Ramon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIt is very inaccurate when using the included cup or when placing the tip in calm water (off by .005). It is much more accurate when placed in high flow. For a while it was spot on when testing high flow areas, however, after a few months of use it has recently been drifting. I noticed my corals were looking stressed and couldn’t figure out why. When I recently had to add a suspiciously large amount of salt to my freshly mixed saltwater batch, I decided to verify with my refractometer. My Icecape was showing 1.022 when in fact the salinity was 1.029! So I checked my tank and it was at 1.031! No wonder my corals were stressed. I loved using this thing because it made life so easy for me. But I just can’t trust it anymore.
accurate but eats batteries By Angelo on 8/11/2018Angelo would recommend this product to a friendI found meter to be very accurate but exchanged as batteries were being drained while in off position. However replacement seems to be fine, checked very accurate. works best when you take against Milwaukee and hand held device and appeared to be very accurate. Extremely easy to use, smart looking device that read temperature as well as salinity.
Oustanding Product! By Salty Dog on 7/29/2018Salty Dog would recommend this product to a friendPurchased this instrument for my wife because she has problems using our refractometer. Comparatively speaking, I found the product to be spot on and extremely easy to use when dipping directly in tank. So much so, I find myself using it more and more instead of our refractometer. Outstanding product!
Don't waste your money By lou on 7/21/2018lou wouldn't recommend this product to a friendNot accurate, don't waste your money. It's not even close. I kept testing low salinity and gradually increased it, but it still registered low. Eventually I decided to test with my refractometer, the salinity was as high as 1.035. My corals were so stressed!
I like it By Sunfixer on 7/6/2018Sunfixer would recommend this product to a friendIt seems to be accurate enough for my needs. I calibrated my old refractometer and they matched exactly in my three tanks. I don't care much about temperature measurement as a I use a traceable thermometer I bought from BRS
Excellent By Michael on 6/27/2018Michael would recommend this product to a friendI am totally satisfied with this unit. Dip the tip in the water and within a couple os seconds you have your specific gravity! Click the button to display SG in different units and also the temp. It beeps when the SG is locked in after dipping into the water. Rinse under tap water, wipe dry and you’re done.
