    I apologize if this is already posted on here, but this is the one I have been using for the last 18, months, its been very reliable and has good reviews. Price is much better than the old cans and it includes added safety devices that fit in with the PLB.

    I keep mine on my waist strap next to the tank, not sure it's been opened for the last 20-30 dives, guess I should check it....I'm using a ACR PLB, been using these for land and sea for the past 15 years.

    It's available on Amazon since earlier this year.

    This appears to be the same canister and holder as reported earlier in this thread, but this is a bit more expensive.

    Okay, thanks for that, I thought I saw it but wasn't sure, but yeah, thats the one I have. I didn't look at the listing so I was comparing an older price I think.
