    Hello chaps,

    Does anyone know where I could get my hands on the K-2 Viper
    150w here in SA ???

    The Sunpod sounds awesome but just a tad bit pricey ????

    I prefer the clip on feature the viper has ???

    Wantitall doesn't keep stock here or anything. They basically import on your behalf... (basically so you can shop at online shops overseas that don't ship here).

    Don't think you will find any of those in SA.

    That price is mental. You can get an amazing light unit made locally for that price.

    Just to give you an idea - my AquaMedic OceanLight was in that region - and I got 2 x 150 watt metal halides, and 2 x 54 watt actinic T5's....(1.2 metre unit)...

    Those are AWESOME units. I got one of those too! ;)
    THOSE units are very good value for money - one x 150 watt METAL HALIDE, with 2 x 24 watt T5's...
    Cost: +-R1700
