Battery/AC amps: Identify? Discuss? Compare?

Hey, look what I found - a boatload of travel amps, most of which can be battery powered:

An impressive list that even includes the natural wood Mountain amp I referenced earlier (that eBay link is gone now).

I have the Marshall MG2CFX. C batteries, 6.5" speaker. There's a Peavey Vypyr competitor coming out too. These are all modeling amps with headphone out & CD/MP3 in. I only got the Marshall 'cause I needed SOMETHING and MF was blowing it out cheap that day. Otherwise, I'd test them all.

Another update:

Quite a few new candidates have appeared on the scene since 2012! I recently got wind of the portable Blackstar FLY amplifier, and I took the bait. I think maybe that one's special enough to Parker players to deserve its own thread in the forum ...

I have had a lot of success with a Roland Mobile Cube. It won't compete with a real drummer unless he's using brushes but it is solid for coffee shop gigs with no drummer. I wouldn't call it a rock amp but it is stereo and i feed it with a gr55 or directly with the fly stereo cable with the piezo going clean in and the mags getting the guitar in. 6 AA batteries last over 5 hours for me.

I've had the Roland Micro (I should have kept it.)
Sold it and bought a Vox mini3.
Both are good battery amps.
The Roland is a bit larger but both have essentially the same layout, battery life(~20-30 hrs) and tone.
The Vox has that more British sound since their amp models follow their original amp lines.
I'm tempted to buy a Roland again.
Cheers!
