Yep, I've got 3 of them and they work as advertised. During the winter I keep a few extra kegs in an old canning closet just outside the front door and I use those for dispensing.
I've never been there, but I love your place. I used to let my beer storage room get into the 40s in the winter so all my kegs were able to be on tap. I don't want the wine getting that cold, though, so now I keep it at 55 which is not too bad for stouts and milds.
That "tap-it" kit kinda scares me. There is no regulator on these chargers and they can put out a LOT of pressure particularly if that growler was full. I'd hate to see a glass growler shatter. I know that I've pinged out the bottom of a 5 litre mini-keg with my charger.
For more control and portability, I bought a "jak pak" which is basically a portable system for pneumatic tools. It hooks to a paintball tank and has gauges so you can control the pressure. Of course, I can't get full paintball tanks in the City or any of the near-in northern suburbs so I've never used the darn thing, but there you go.
