    I have the med Engel too. Been using it about a year now. One set batteries last the three 8-10 hour days that my trips have been. Very minimal minnow loss. Not knocking cheaper styrofoam buckets, but I don't worry about breaks, cracks, or leaks with the Engel.

    I have 2 Engels the small one and the large one. If Iím fishing all day I carry both of them I put 2 lbs of minnows in the big one and put it in the back of the boat and keep the small one up front with me . I use an oxygen system and run a line to each cooler. I canít stand to hear a pump running . I donít loose any minnow and they are so lively they act like they are on steroids It is nice sometime not to have to fool with minnows and catch fish.

    I'am not a fan of that version. It slosh's too much water out. The magnum version or even the Engel version is better all the way around. What I ended up doing was taking an old Yeti Roadie, and route my bubbler line through the drain plug. Seals good, and will keep minnows, goldfish, or bream alive all day depending on what I am fishing for.

    I look at it as a Buy Once Cry Once deal.

    I use a cat litter bucket lids seals good enough water don't splash out its the square bucket drill a hole in the lid for the aerator hose then I took an air cut-off tool cut a little slot in the ridge around the bucket wide enough for the little clip on the air pump works great and its cheap think its the Tidy cat littler anyway its a yellow square bucket plus wouldn't be hard to insulate it if you wanted to

    Another happy Engel cooler/bait tank user. I have the 30qt and use it as cooler or holding minnows when crappie fishing.
