    Still some of the best lights you can get, and now even better with the wifi link.

    Can't say who has off hand. It's not typically a stock item for shops. But if it's in Gauteng we can get it there same day or next day. Durban is next day and Cape Town 2-3 days.

    Is this special on the Gen1 or Gen2? Called VIP pets and they said it is the Gen1, but that does not come with the new TIR lenses or the water resistant fan...

    It is the Gen 1. They have been specially manufactured with the new fans & TIR lenses.

    Any Major differences between the Gen1 and Gen2? I'm planing on using it on my 60x60x50 cube.

    G2 has upgraded LED panels. You also get a little more par out of them compared to the G1. But the G1 outfitted with TIR lenses comes close to the G2's performance (in terms of par). Here's some more info:

    Radion XR30w G2 Upgrade - EcoTech Marine | EcoTech Marine

    G2 is better, but if you're looking for value then the G1 is the better option.

    Thanks. Specs don't look that far off for the G1 with the TIR Lens compared to the G2, so just confirmed my order with VIP Pets:)

    OK, my bad
    But the Gen 1 with TIR lenses is basically the same as GEN 2.
    Got the Gen 1 units myself. And done the TIR lens upgrade. It is a big difference.

    Yes, definitely makes a very big difference on par readings. We were quite surprised when we did our first upgrade & used the meter to check out the difference.

    Ash, thanks for your business :)

    Are these units eligible for the upgrade path to Pro units at a later date?
