Default Faucet to Corny adapter, anyone use one?

I just ordered one of these for portable kegging, and wondered if anyone has used one before. I got thinking, and wondered how it would work with no line resistance?

I think you just need to dial down the pressure really low (a few psi) and it's not designed for long term serving.

yes, you need to set your regulator down to 1-4 psi. they are only for serving the keg at a party, not for long term dispensing, or else you would lose carbonation.

Great, like I said it's only for portable kegging. I hate picnic faucets they make such a mess. I run a JACPAC setup for C02, like BM's rolling kegerator.

I use 2 of the mixers from this thread for my picnic tap and they work great:
