What's the difference between the sunsun 304a and the 304b, or really any of their filters that have both an a and b line?

Well, I have no idea. I would have to search the Internet just like you. I think the B is available in the US, while the A is outside the US? That according to Google searches and Amazon listings.

The 304b includes a 9W UV unit.

Well not too sure about that. I see a 304A with a UV on the web.

Edit... Looks like it is correct that there is no UV light.

Also the 304A has 4 media baskets. The 304B only has 3, to incorporate the UV.
Just found a Youtube video that shows the cap and it appears to be a filler cap where the UV switch goes.


So thanks, you are correct... no UV light.

Obviously a typo. Near the bottom it gets called a 304B.

They’re the same as the APS canisters available in the UK (which I use).

Flux Capacitor!? No way! I've been trying to find one for my delorean for ages. Any idea where I can get a Mr. Fusion in case I need backup power?
