power point. Claims to make 16.2kg of ice in 24hrs, although it would need to be emptied of ice and topped up with water
many times in a day.
That was my plan as well. However, if you read the reviews
on these appliances
you'll find that they don't last long. Having experience with similar Chinese devices which never work
well, then stop working, I determined that the need for ice is less than my level of frustration constantly trying to make them work
I also found that common models are branded in all manners- from no-name to recognized brand names- and the price
varies accordingly. So if you do elect to buy one, search Amazon, Ebay, etc to find the best price
for the same device. For example, the specimen you linked is marketed in USA by Igloo and many Igloo models are also branded by two or three others.
