Sicce Syncra Nano: in depth review


Sicce Syncra Nano

Sicce has presented the small Sicce Syncra Nano in the last days of last year, we are here today to present our review and our measurations.

As always we have measured maximum height, output, power consumption and this time also the noise, that will be a standard measuration for the future.

The new Sicce Syncra Nano is really small, it seems almost incredible that it works and is not a game, it’s pretty much a fascinating exercise in style.

One of the striking characteristics is the ability to use this small pump both as movement pump that as normal pump. The pump is in fact watertight and therefore is suitable for outdoor aquarium installation. If internal installed, it is possible to use the command to choke the flow, thus obtaining a minimum of 40 (140) and a maximum of 110 gph (400 l/h) of flow rate.

Sicce also indicates the pump as extremely quiet, among its best features.

We can say that Sicce Syncra Nano moves 143 litres of water for every watt consumed, to compare it to the small Hydor Pico 600.115, with 600 l/h output and 7 watt of power consumption, that can move only 86 litres for every watt consumed, maybe thanks to his greater maximum height (140 cm).

With a price of 20,33 euro it has an economic efficiency of 20 litres for euro.

 

The construction

In the following picture it’s possible to see all the accessories sold together with the pump, useful to use it in his Double-Face mode, internal-external.

Inside the box we can find the pump, the four plastic suckers and their support, one o-ring, and two different caps for the pump. One with flow adjustment, to use in conjunction with fluidized bed for example, or when it is used like recirculating pump, and the other cap is the usual cap we usually see.

When we place a small 2 Euro coin side by side with the pump… it’s incredible how tiny is the pump. And look at the next picture…

The tiny rotor… and it’s so tiny we can ask if it will last… and I’ve to admit that during my test I’ve had no complaints at all.

Here the pump with one of the two small cap, right to use with a filter, as I did.

What do you think about the Sicce Syncra Nano?
Final Thoughts

We liked the Sicce Syncra Nano because it was very reliable, an all around pump as we can use also like recirculating pump, very quiet and very very close to the declared values from Sicce.
