I just got a shiny new aluminum 5 lb one, and I'm not swapping it either. I wouldn't worry about fill time. I can't imagine it takes that long. To find a place that fills I just went to google maps in my area and searched for "gas service" and started calling. Within 5-10 minutes I had a list of half a dozen local places with prices that would fill it while you wait. The most convenient one was also the cheapest, so I got lucky. Expect to pay about $4-5 extra for a fill vs exchange. Every place I called charged extra for a fill vs. exchange.
