Mosa CO2 chargers in iSi whipper

Here in Australia the Mosa CO2 cartridges are much cheaper than the iSi branded ones or the Liss ones. Does anyone have experience using these Mosa chargers in an iSi Gourmet Whip? I've found a few sites saying they are compatible, but these are also sites that are selling them. I just thought it would be prudent to check if anyone has direct experience with using the Mosa in and iSi.

 

Thank you.

Other than not being of pristine Viennese origin, what exactly does that chart tell us about the other types of Nitrous chargers?   If other charger mfgs are shipping adulterated chargers, that chart doesn't say so... but implies that the non-Austrian ones are inferior.  For a commodity chemical, the question is whether what they say they're selling is what they're selling... Why would I need an "EU certified pharmaceutical manufacturer" to wave a seal of approval over my commodity chemical?

I'm not sure that you "need" it, but I've found that the quality of the medical grade cartridges I've used is generally better.

Some that I've used were inconsistently charged.

Others had something flaking off the port end....not what I want in my food.

 

The difference in price was only 3 cents per box of 24....actually....the troubled cartridges cost more due to shipping.

 

I'll stick with the better quality ones.

in diving, for example, you can get gases that may be adulterated with generator or pump  fumes or oil or solvents, etc.

stuff you don't want to breathe, but that in other uses might not matter

 

I feel the same way with gas I'm using in food.

I'd RATHER it be certified as 'pharmaceutical grade'
