Powered Paint Roller
The Paint Stick has a paint reservoir built into the handle that fills itself by sucking paint out of the can. A special cover and fill tube fit over a gallon paint can. You set the Paint Stick over the fill tube, drawing the handle backwards to suck paint up into the handle. Then you push the handle in to feed paint automatically to the paint roller. When you're finished painting, you can return extra paint to the can by putting the Paint Stick back onto the fill tube and pushing the handle back in.
The Paint Stick holds enough paint in the handle to cover 60 sq. ft. without stopping. One fill is equal to about 8 trips to a paint tray with a regular roller. The handle also serves as an extension so you won't need a ladder to reach ceilings or tops of walls.
Sells for $29.99. A special roller cleaner is available that connects up to a garden hose to quickly clean the unit out.
