Jeff from CoralVue got back to me and said the following:

“We haven't tested it, but I presume it is compatible. Maxspect Gyre pumps work. It seems logical the Reef Wave would be, too, since it's made by Maxspect.

I tried looking at pictures online, but I am having difficulty finding any that show the power supply and cables. And Red Sea didn't include the voltage of the pump in their product descriptions online.

But you should be able to answer these questions if you have the pump with you. If the answers to these two questions are yes, then the pump will be compatible.

Question 1: Is the pump 24V?
Question 2: Does the pump have a detachable power supply brick?

If you answered yes to both, congratulations! You've found your batter backup solution. :)

Sounds like it should work. I know the Reefwave has a detachable power brick. Any chance someone could take a quick pic of the input cables/connectors?

I forgot to mention in the text: start at ~42 seconds and up the quality as high as it'll go (1440p).
Hi reefomatix, were yo able to connect the Reefwave to the Icecap backup after all?? I’m also in the same situation looking for a backup for Reefwave 45.

I currently don't have a ReefWave, but it's on my short list of pumps/wavemakers I'm considering for my tank upgrade. If someone can confirm the size of the plug is 5.5mm I'm 99% positive it'll work. I'll be sure to update you if I decide to purchase it.

Awesome I’ll measure the reefwave plug once i get home. Thanks!
I forgot I submitted a question to Bulk Reef Supply, so I just found it in my email. It's supported according to them:
Your question about Battery Backup v2.0 - IceCap has been answered.

Your Question: Is this compatible with the Red Sea ReefWave 25 and 45? Thanks!

Answer: Hey there,
Thank you for reaching out to us! Yes, it is compatible. The Reefwave was made by Maxspect for Red Sea!

Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!
