Sonic scrubber

I just bought a sonic scrubber and some accessory brushes from Drs Foster and Grant.
There is also a website devoted to the product. http://www.sonicscrubbers.com
It is a small, water-proof, battery-operated hand held scrubbing brush that resembles a toothbrush to a certain degree. It does take much of the arm-work out of scrubbing algae off the sides of the fish tank. I found it can get closer to the gravel than the other scrubbers I've used and helps with the fatigue that sets in with the manual types.
Nice product.
Anyone else have one??

neither have I seen them in any of the stores I frequent out and about.
I got mine through dr foster and grant website.
Since the original post, I've had more opportunity to use it. The fish, especially the oscar, do not like being in its vicinity as it does generate a lot of noise.

it is no louder than an electlric toothbrush. what it sounds like to them is open to conjecture. the oscar is the only fish that really dislikes it. however, his tank tends to algae up a little quicker. this is not like it is a daily task.
