BioLet Compost Toilets

Does anyone have a BioLet Toilet or have any thoughts of one? I have been researching on the line and they look real good. Thanks in advance for any information.

Dmarina,
Why do they look real good?

Is this right?
"Average continuous 24 hour power consumption: 50 watts
250 Watts max
25 Watt fan (runs continuously)
225 Watt heaters (thermostatically controlled)"

Doesn't that work out to 100 Amp-hours a day? Seems like a lot of electricity and not very "green" especially when there are others out there that will function with just a solar fan.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
