When empty, the disposable helium tank can be easily placed in your household recyclable waste.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn’t keep balloons afloat Bought this super excited for my partners birthday. Had a whole 2 packs of balloons (bought from 2 different shops). I used the helium to blow all of these up the previous night (around 10pm) ready for the morning! I wake up ready to get them to surprise my parter and they had ALL blown down!! Sadly some of these were rubber ones where you tie the balloon so I couldn’t un-do these, I did however manage to re blow the foil ones back up. Sadly again by the end of the day they were all deflated :( I thought at first it was the type of balloons but considering I bought from 2 different retailers and 2 types of balloons I’ve concluded it must be the helium. Super super disappointed, will not be purchasing again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Used can?!? I’ve purchased many helium canisters from HC in the past & never had a problem. However, I really regret not checking the valve at the time of purchase. The valve on my canister would not open AT ALL and my husband had to use strong pliers to get it undone. It blew up the first numbered helium balloon well but then nothing after that. I was gutted as it was late at night & we were inflating my daughter’s 13th balloons. The rest we had to fill with normal air & hang instead. We were so upset. I think we must’ve been given a return item. As much as this wasn’t a pleasant experience, it wouldn’t stop me from purchasing this item again. I would just highly recommend you check the valve before you leave the store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth an penny I bought a tank a few months ago and I tried to use it after a few weeks of purchase, it completely didn't work. I thought maybe the tank became faulty because I let it sit for a few weeks before use. I bought a 2nd tank on a Wednesday. On Saturday I had a party very excited, I blew the ballons closer to the time of arrival for my guests. Not even the smallest balloon floated in air. I was very disappointed and embarrassed because i had to explain to each guest. I will never purchase again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Easy to use but poor value I was initially pleased with this product however it fell short of my expectations. It was easy to use but the capacity was nowhere near what was predicted. On my daughters birthday this product filled up 2 slightly larger balloons and only 11 standard ones. Leaving us with no time to purchase another canister so our decoration display was diminished to some degree. This product was not to our expectations and incredibly poor value for money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy This product does not contain enough gas concentration for foil balloons to float. Complete disappointment. The tank I had must be faulty as this cannot be sold in such a poor state as it does not do what it says on the box. Don’t waste your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your time. I bought this to blow up some balloons for my daughters 4th birthday. The box came damaged and only managed to blow up in 4 balloons before running out. Emailed hobbycraft as not happy, had one reply and nothing since. Not worth the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit flat The balloons didn’t stay up for long at all- maybe 7 hours max? So we prepped the decorations in the morning and by the time we wanted them for the tables they were coming down!
