After seeing a friends portable unit working, I bought one from EBay for $105 w/ shipping.

They cycle in 8-10 mins. after the 1st batch and 12 bullet shaped (3/4-1" or so dia.) cubes ea time. I'll use it w/ dock power mostly, but I also have a sm generator along w/ Solar and Wind w/ an inverter if out. It came in today and cycled 4 batches in 45-50 mins.

that 12 volt unit above only uses 4 amps but $ 985.00?? yikes
