For us it makes sense to gather together several bottles and make a pilgrimage to the dive shop. Normally we take at least four 12 litre bottles and sometimes up to a dozen. It takes the dive shop a while to fill 12 bottles so we find a place for lunch and pick them up a couple of hours later. Makes a proper day out.
Yes. 12L is max for 300 bar for portable. I've just had this very discussion with a supplier.
