RIBase
I had a few of the units, found they went of in the smallest shower.

Shame though if they have gone under....

I really liked the idea and bought a few when they came out, but gradually lost confidence in them.

The last straw was when one of them activated while sat on the dashboard, this picture was taken when the baloon was at its fullest

Its a shame, they were really neat and easy to carry.
