I had mine regassed two months ago. It needed 315 grams (meaning it was almost empty). Before regassing it didn't blow cold at all. After regassing it began working as expected, although not as efficient as in the larger Suzuki I had before the Cactus - but I suspect it's because the system in the Cactus is much smaller. The Suzuki held almost 800 grams in total, whereas the Cactus is at about 350 grams total if I remember correctly.

Interestingly the system became noisy from the aircon pipes after only a few days. That is an indication that the system isn't pressurized as it should be - meaning there's a leak or a problem with the dry filter. I too suspect that my mechanic didn't do a full vacuum for long enough and didn't leak test it properly. But thankfully it does still cool fine.
