The Tunze Turbelle Safety Connector allows for a safe connection of your Tunze powerheads to most 12v batteries. It contains a 4 Amp fuse and permits normal operation with the Tunze power supply units. In case of a power failure, it will automatically switch over to a battery or another direct-current source in the instance of a power outage. Run times will vary based on the size of the backup battery.
Will this safety connector work w/any programmable tunze pump or does it have to be only the 6105 programmable pump?
Question by: Darren Fernandez on Feb 9, 2022, 7:13 PM
Great question! This battery back up connection will work with any programmable Tunze Pump.

Will this work with Vortech battery backups and Tunze pumps?
Question by: RAAAAARGHHH! on Nov 17, 2017, 2:49 PM
Tunze pumps are a great choice, but they are not compatible with the Ecotech Battery Backup. Tunze pumps use the Tunze safety connector and then can be connected to a standard 12V battery that you can find at your local battery center or hardware store. That and a cheap trickle charger can actually cost less than the battery backup from Ecotech.

Will the Tunze Turbelle Stream Controllable 6105 Pump connect to a ICECAP battery back up ?
Question by: FLSharkvictim on Nov 19, 2016, 1:55 PM
Great question! Unfortunately this pump will not work with the ICECAP battery backup. I would recommend a UPS style battery backup. :-)

What should I use to connect the safety connector to a battery?
Question by: Mary Sokoloski on Jun 19, 2016, 7:11 PM
To connect to the battery many people have used battery clamps in a smaller size which have been modified to clamp onto the battery as well as the other end cut to connect to the safety connector.

Hello, will this work with ecotech MP10 ?
Question by: Jason on Feb 2, 2016, 8:46 PM
The connector is designed for use with Tunze pumps. unfortunately the Ecotech pumps are not recommended for use with the Connector. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor on Feb 24, 2016, 5:03 PM
How many Tunze pumps can be used on one safety connector? When on battery mode, do the pumps reduce power to save battery life?
Question by: Samich Saweeng Batta on Feb 2, 2016, 1:28 PM
One safety connector can attach to a Tunze pump. The 4 amp fuse keeps the power consistent and does not run a power saving mode. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
