Are these things available locally? Never really noticed them.

all these recharge kits are a waste of time...as long as you have to recharge or "top up" it means your system has a leak...ac systems suppose to be sealed systems using the same 134 gas over and over.....best bet is to fix your leak and never have to worry about topping up again

I bought a kit...from ebay...mine has a gauge on it...15 USD...not a waste of time to me...first of all the gauge lets u know how much pressure is in the system and if it needs topping up..secondly the refill can of gas is only 38 TTD from time to time your ac system will need a top up...or for some reason u might have to regas here is where its a great deal...

Nada, unless there is a leak. Its best to fix the leak instead of constantly add.
God forbid air get into the system (if it is on the suction line) and the compressor starts to compress air and refrigerant. :idea:
