Eheim Battery Operated Glass Cleaner

Anyone tried this new? glass cleaner from Eheim? I saw it on today's email ad from Premium Aquatics. It's a battery operated submersible vibrating blade cleaner that the description claims can remove everything from algae to mineral deposits. I currently use floating magnets with and without a blade. They work O.K. but it would be nice to have something that cleans the glass on the first pass. With my current cleaners I have to go back and forth many times to get it clean.

An interesting new product, I wonder how effective it is.

I would be interested in seeing some user feedback regarding this product.

This looks completely stupid but I think I want one. It would be nice if it utilized a replaceable standard utility blade though.

It even had an LED light so you can clean the glass at night without disturbing your fish! What will the Germans think of next?

When I read the title I was thinking of a Roomba type glass cleaner.

I have never had anything that a Magic Eraser or a normal algae scraper was not able to deal with.
