Brighter Satellite Freshwater PLUS in the works?

Just read a review of the Satellite Freshwater LED PLUS dated June of last year where the reviewer mentioned he had heard a higher intensity version was in the works. Has that higher intensity version come out since then or has it not hit the store shelves yet?

I'm about to buy a couple of these, but if a brighter version is coming out soon I'll hold out till it hits.

Check out the Ecoxotic E series, it is Current's sister company. I don't have one but from what I have read it's all the bells and whistles of the Sat+ with a more plant geared light output. Plus you might get away with only one.

Yes it has. It's the Ecoxotic E-Series mentioned above. I'm getting higher PAR with one than I had with 2 Satellite LED+'s, and my tank is more open on top. It also has a much better controller. The 2 LED+'s I had better coverage, which was the only trade off. I much prefer the single Ecoxotic.
