Saw these today. Looked different then the other mini keg systems I've seen.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/261192265196

Any experiences with them? Says co2 is refillable but not info on what cartridge type.

Looks interesting. The description says you would have to reorder regulator and cartridge assembly from the keg manufacturer which makes me a little leery. It looks like you would fill through the bung and prime with sugar, then use the CO2 to maintain pressure and dispense. I would love more info on these. Seems pretty cheap if the cartridges are reasonable.

I have one myself bought from ebay.. came with keg, co2 hand charger, and picnic faucet. You can force carb just as you would your regular keg (or at least I do) it works great very potable works good with small batches. I love that little guy, plan on getting another...

Ok there called a draft king by Huber out of Germany. No info on what the co2 cartridge looks like. I'm tempted to order one to check it out. 45 for 4 or 1 for 18....hmmmm

hmm, this looks like a 1 use thing for breweries, I don't see replacement cartridges offered.

If it's the Huber, they moved the tap to the bottom.

That looks like it would take a regular CO2 cartridge maybe...
