eBay has an adapter to refill portable butane bottles for $8.00 with free shipping.
I'd about given up finding one of these and threw away a lot of empty bottles a few years ago. It only took two days to get here from California, over 1000 miles away. eBay is great for finding things, and shipping cost are affordable, and I don't have to sign up for prime like amazon to get affordable shipping.
I'm going to be looking in trash cans for empty bottles when I go camping this year.
YouTube has videos that show how to fill the bottles, and has videos for doing almost everything.

Half the cost? I'm pretty sure it's much less than that.
A quick on-line check shows that 1 lb tanks are going for $3-$4 these days.
I just had a 20 lb tank filled for under $10. Even the more expensive Blue
Rhino style exchanges are much cheaper than "half the cost" on a per pound
I've had a refill adapter for 10+ years. You don't get anywhere near a full
1 lb refill, so you have to do it more often than you might like, but it
does cut down on the cost considerably.
