EcoTech Marine Releases New Battery Backup
In the quest to continually raise the bar for product excellence and customer experience, EcoTech Marine is pleased to announce the release of the all new EcoTech Marine Battery Backup™. Thanks to our loyal and rapidly expanding customer base, EcoTech Marine continues to grow its product line.

Expanding our product line and in-sourcing our production and quality control is a natural step for us to take and one we hope is embraced by the reefing community. After an extensive period of engineering, the new EcoTech Marine Battery Backup is now shipping. "By bringing the Battery Backup accessory in-house, we can now better control the availability and final quality of this critical piece of reef tank insurance," said Tim Marks, President of EcoTech Marine. "We thank IceCap for their support over the years and are pleased to take this critical step forward."

By adding the an EcoTech Marine Battery Backup, your tank’s flow will continue unaltered for up to 60 hours after the power goes out (30 hours for two pumps). Add a second battery backup to double the run time.

The Battery Backup also now comes with two spare cables, instead of just one allowing you to backup multiple VorTech propeller pumps or link batteries together for more run time. Additionally, we are utilizing a more powerful charger which allows for longer run-time.

Remember, it might take a typhoon to destroy a natural reef, but for our captive reefs it only takes a power outage.


Included in package:
1 Power supply for charging
2 Fused Battery Backup cables
Compatible with all models and generations of VorTech Propeller Pumps and Vectra Centrifugal Pumps.  Note: Vectra Centrifugal pumps require the use of a Vectra Battery Backup Booster which is sold separately.

Solid performance with 2 MP40s Aug 18, 2020
I live in the city and rarely have power outages, but this kept my MP40s going when the storm knock out the power for a short time.
I don't know if they saved any live stock - nothing was even stressed - but it sure saved my nerves knowing it was there doing it's job.
4 stars, not 5 because the case is closed by pop rivets, not screws so replacing the battery when it ages will be a little bit harder.
By the way - this is way heavier than I thought it would be so plan ahead for mounting.
