    Battery Backup - $160 (take off $20 if purchased with pump)

    nope, I think lap is just dreaming right now. hahaha. BTW I just got in on a used pair for a great price. No group buy for me haha. Damm I am spending too much money though.

    You and me both. For an economic crisis, we BARers sure know how to spend!

    Well, supposedly there's some other things under development right now and they're not releasing any other info.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they do decide to make a bigger pump though. The new controllable Tunzes push way more water.

    Does anyone know if there is pricing for the WWD driver upgrade? Thinking about upgrading from mp40 to mp40w.

    130 for 20 to 40w. not sure about 40 to 40w.

    Not to derail or dissuade people from the group buy, but AFAIK $360 is the wholesale price for the md40w, so if someone is selling at cost I'd worry what's in it for them, as this isn't just a "good price to save shipping" as no stores "legally" can sell this product for the prices offered.

    That being said, as word gets around on this (it has been almost a month I know :D) EcoTech might put the kibosh on selling to whomever is arrranging it.

    Not to say I wouldn't jump in on it if I felt completely confident that there are no shenanigans going on :)

    I heard that the retailers pay $300 each for 10+ units.

    I got mine and love it. I also got a receipt for it listing retail pricing ;)

    Oh is that where you ended up getting your vortech from? :D

    Still selling them under MSRP people better keep quiet about where they got them from or EcoTech might stop selling them pumps at wholesale.
