Lifecord – kill cord

Has anyone pre-ordered one of the Lifecord units?

I was tempted, but at about £92

I think its a good step forward, but still very expensive with the new technology.

I don’t think this tech offers much on a traditional kill cord, when used as intended. It rather put £92 in my tank.

I can see the advantage, of a reminder - Kind of like a seat belt beeping alert on some cars.

But have to agree at over £90, I can find better things to spend my money on and it doesn't float....

Ah. Thank you.
Interesting but I think I'll stick with the normal types.
