Any recommendations for a tube reservoir?

If you can find an IandH Stealth res, then that's the one! Or an old original EK MULTIOPTION

I'd take a Koolance 80mm tube reservoir and base over either of those anyway. They are so huge it looks awesome.

Actually D5 Vario we are getting are also can run at 8-24v as Strong pump, but only at max 1.42A, while Strong rated 1.7A.

I'm not sure if anybody tested if there are any gains for running D5 Vario at 24v. ??
