Anyone had one & tested it ( on purpose or by accident ? )

In the same position, got two delivered, look well made but no way of telling until too late. Do you know if we use it whether we can recharge them?

Think they are one hit wonder - partly why I get two . when i get really bored & its really cold in Jan / Feb I might clip it to a weight & drop it off the local bridge into 10ft of river water. If it works I'll put the other one on the portable plotter.

I'm still not convinced my lifejacket will inflate if needed ( never having had to try ) might try the same with that !

I thought that had been cured now? When OI read a test in a boat mag they said it took ages to inflate as well.............
