I saw this thing on the manufacturer's homepage and really like it for obvious reasons. (Yeah, it's a cop-out for mixing drinks, but who cares?) Does anyone have one of these, or have you used one somewhere? I'm just curious about how reliable/effective it is, and how long the batteries last. Unless it's a piece of crap, I think I'm gonna buy one and give it a paint job.
