I can't comment on the Wipperman as I've not personally used one. I do however use a lot of SRAM and Shimano chains.
I prefer Sram for my mtn bike, but have used a Powerlink on a Shimano chain without ANY problems. Sure their website says it's not compatible, but that's probably a CYA situation.
Also, I keep 2 extra links in my Camelback. If you snap a link on the trail, you can just insert another Powerlink as a quick fix.
