22 oz may be mis-leading

  • By A Customer from Happy Valley on Friday, April 27, 2012
  • Pros: That is relatively low compression, so it is unlikely to explode in the cockpit.
  • Cons: That is relatively low compression, so there really isn't much in the can.
  • Review: [This review was originally written for the 22 ounce can that was replaced with this 10 liter] The "22 ounce can" actually weighs about 4.3 ounces. The can's Contents lists the weight as "Net Wt 7 grams". It is so light, you won't have to worry about your weight and balance calculation.

    "22 ounces" seems to refer to fluid ounces, the size of the can, not the amount of O2 in the can.

    The can is labeled "6 litres"(sic).
    A liter is about 33.8 fluid ounces...half of that 2-liter soda bottle in the frig.
    So how much O2 is in the can?
    Well, it claims to be 6 liters of O2 compressed into a container that is around 2/3 of a liter.

    The advertising literature claims there are 120+ squirts in the can. A normally healthy adult is taking around 10-20 breaths a minute. So best case scenario, you get about a 10 minute supply of O2.

boost oxygen

  • By A Customer from seattle,wa on Monday, June 25, 2012
  • Pros:
  • Cons: too big and bulky, not confident about low air pressure in bottle
  • Review: [This review was originally written for the 22 ounce can that was replaced with this 10 liter] I have compared this product to oxygen 4 energy (a 4 liter slim bottle). Boost seems to have low air pressure and the mask provides for suction of external air. VErsus the competition, you get a blast under higher pressure so you know you are getting everything from the bottle.

    the mask does not align with your mouth opening

    Boost is cheaper but not sure I get the same result

Don't try to fly Southwest with these

  • By Kitty from Melbourne, FL on Thursday, February 13, 2014
  • Review: [This review was originally written for the 22 ounce can that was replaced with this 10 liter] Please be aware that the airline will not let you check these in your luggage or carry them on the plane! They consider them compressed oxygen. if you need them while out skiing, you will have to ship them to your destination. It was a good thing that I called Southwest to ask where to pack them or I would have lost an entire case of these.
