I bought this machine to make non-alcoholic versions of daiquiris and margaritias and discovred that this is one heck of a slush maker as well! The consistency of the drinks that this machine makes is like a frozen coke consistency and the machine works very quickly and easily. The machine is also very easy to clean after use. I am able to get three full batches of drinks from one batch of ice from my refrigerator's automatic ice maker. The automatic feature shaves ice and blends perfectly. This is the third "smoothie" type machine that I have had and the only one that works like it is supposed to. The battery charges well and so far I have made 15 batches of drinks without a recharge.

This will definitely be nice on hot summer nights on the deck!

In the search for a good 12 volt blender for the boat (there isn't any), I come across the Margaritaville Explorer. While more than I wanted to spend, it has lived up to it's expectations.

You simply pour the mix, for 1 to 3 drinks, in the picture, put the ice up top, turn the knob to how many drinks you want, and push the button. It does the rest for you. A perfectly blended margarita.

This machine is loud, but not a bunch louder than any other quality blender.

Also, if you don't put in enough mix, the blender/mixer may not pull down the ice on the top requiring you to spoon mix it. This is not a problem if you mix properly.

I've made 7 pitchers over the course of 4 days so far with no re-charge and it is just as powerful on the 7th pitcher as on the 1st.

For the price, the should have included the optional carrying case.

This machine far exceeded my highest expectation. A few months ago I was given the plug-powered version as a gift and was blown away by its quality. Then I found out that Margaritaville made this battery-powered version! I knew I just had to have it for my pontoon boat and travel... it did not disappoint. It had just as much ice crushing power as the other and I couldn't be happier. I just wish I had it at the beginning of summer! A must have for any "tiki bar" enthusiast like myself. I highly recommend.

I took my battery operated Margaritaville machine to the beach in Destin, Florida this summer. I also use it on my pontoon boat when electricity is not available. While I love the portability the battery operated machine, you definitely need at least two batteries if you plan on making more than 2 or 3 batches. I find the battery life to be very poor which forced me to buy a backup. Also, additional batteries are EXTREMELY overpriced. It cost me around $100 to get a backup battery - that's crazy, but I didn't reel I had much of a choice. Lastly, it would be wonderful to have the option to plug it in when electricity is available. I hate the fact that I have to charge batteries at home or I my camper to make a drink. The idea behind the machine is great, but there is a lot of room for improvement considering the price I paid. I like mine in certain situations, but I'd have a hard time recommending to others.

We've had our Margaritaville Explorer since our bridal shower in 2011. It was AMAZING! Best gift ever. We used it all summer and even took it to the Outer Banks for our family vacation and out on the beach with us while we were there. After about a year of using it fairly frequently our battery just stopped holding a charge. We couldn't even get through one drink cycle.

So I bought a new battery from Jarden (Margaritaville's parent company) and that wasn't cheap. After over $100 including tax and shipping, our battery arrived. After 3 months of having it and 2 full days of use, it wouldn't hold a charge for a full drink cycle. It worked as it should for ONE charge cycle and then never again.

I emailed Jarden and they sent me a new battery. It arrived towards the end of summer, so we used it once or twice and then recently pulled it out one night when I made Mexican food and wanted Margaritas with dinner. The battery wouldn't work even through one full drink cycle. Is this the wrong battery!? Nope. None of the three would work, even though they all showed a full charge on the charger. We've done EVERYTHING they tell you to do to take care of the batteries. We don't store it in the machine, we don't store it in the charger, don't leave it on the charger after it's charged fully, etc.

I contacted them about the issue and said that it was unacceptable that we've now paid close to $500 for something that doesn't work, especially since there's no way to use it without a battery. What was their response? "Sorry, you're out of warranty."

Absolutely unacceptable. We absolutely loved this product and would have continued to rave about it and the company if they had actually stood by their product and realized that the problem was not with us. I can't recommend this to anyone.

We love this thing! We have brought out on the boat and camping in the summer and to tailgate parties all year long. The battery lasts and lasts. The battery life does suffer a little in the cold (but the it was freezing temps out before the football game). It is also an attention getter, lot's of people stop to ask about it. The option to manually bend and chop is great to be able personalize your drinks. It is so simple to use it is great.

The only thing that would make it better would be the option to also plug it in. (Just when the temps drop at football games and the battery gets cold -but remember it was like 14 degrees outside, and it still worked).

Not sure if you really need the salt and lime kit but the carry bag is a definite plus - makes it so mobile you really get more out of it. All the parts (blender, battery, charger, salt and lime kits, and depending on how much liquid your packing you can even get that in there.

We usually have stuff to make margaritas and daiquiris - traditional mix and strawberry mix, rum, and tequila - and you are good to go, of course you can also use to make other drinks and even virgin drinks
