Rated 1 out of 5 by from None of the balloons stayed! I filled them up at 9pm and by 7am all the balloons had fallen! Super disappointed! My child is going to be so upset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helium tank We bought this helium tank over a year ago. It has filled up several aluminum balloons we reuse for birthday’s. They last at least a week once blown up. We will be buying another one tomorrow as we have just finished all the helium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK, let's get realistic about what this is People seem to have an incorrect idea of what this product is and what it can do. I've purchased 4 of these, about to purchase a 5th. So I've used enough of them to see what's what. First, the tank does contain enough helium for many balloons. "Many" depends on how big you fill them. Foil balloons have a maximum volume, else they pop - rubber balloons are obviously variable. I'd count on getting about 15-20 balloons per tank, though I admittedly have never counted. This may be less than the 30 specified, obviously, and works out to about $1/balloon (less if you use a coupon, which are commonly available). If you don't fill the balloons up enough, they will not float. Or, they might float, but will not float with strings / ribbons attached. This is just physics, and not the fault of the helium / balloon makers. It may take a bit of experimentation, and you will probably have to fill rubber balloons more than you expect to get good performance. My advice is don't be stingy with the helium, even if you risk getting fewer balloons out of it. Those with non-floaty balloons obviously didn't fill them up big enough, but that's hardly the fault of the tank maker. It can take a bit of practice to fill the balloons without leaking helium during the process. It isn't rocket science, and after the first couple you'll get the hang of it. I suspect those saying the tanks are only good for a few balloons are somehow leaking a lot of helium during filling. Helium is slippery stuff. So after filling, ALL balloons will leak helium. Rubber ones are faster, foil ones slower. If you don't tie / seal them correctly, they will leak very fast and lead to disappointing results. I've not had any unusual problems with this, so it's obviously possible to make it work. Foil balloons are more suited for helium. You fill them until full - RIGHT full, like bursting at the seams full - and that's it. They should not leak too fast, and will probably float for 3-4 days. After that, they are still somewhat inflated but will no longer float. Be sure you know how to seal the inlet and attach a string before you begin, else you might leak a bunch before you get it closed up. Rubber balloons will ALL leak helium through the rubber surface. If you buy "helium quality" balloons, they leak slower. "Helium quality" balloons will last a day, TOPS. I KNOW because I've done 6 birthdays using these tanks. THAT'S JUST THE WAY THE BALLOONS ARE, and it's not the fault of this manufacturer. So DON'T fill them until JUST BEFORE you want to use them. Of course, if you buy any balloons at a party shop, they can / will fill them for you. It's even (usually) free for foil balloons. This isn't necessarily handy if the party is not that day, as even foil balloons might deflate in the meantime. Situations like this, or when you can't get to a store, are where this tank is handy, as you can wait to the day of and do the balloons just before their use for maximum effect. Once upon a time, there was a 50-balloon tank that may have been a better value, but this 30-count tank is typically enough for 1 to 1.5 parties. If you don't like that, your options seem to be to somehow find the 50-count tank, visit the party store 2 hours before the party to get balloons filled, spring for a $250 industrial tank of helium, weighing 35 lbs, that needs a $150 regulator to operate, or pay a not-inexpensive service to visit your location and fill 'em up. So, this is what this is - a decent way to be able to fill a reasonable quantity of helium balloons wherever you are. But as it's not filled with magic pixie dust, don't expect rubber balloons to last more than overnight no matter what. And the per-balloon cost IS rather high, which is the price of convenience. If it's not worth the cost, don't whine about it - instead, don't plan on floating balloons for that next camping trip. Based on this, I'm rating it 4 stars simply because of the relatively high per-balloon cost (which I wish was a bit less), and the fact the 50-count tank seemingly isn't available any more. But after 4 tanks, I can confidently say the tank DOES WORK, and it DOES DO what it says on the tin. So for those in need, grab a coupon before buying, fill them big, and enjoy the results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is terrible The helium tank doesn’t fill that many balloons. After the few balloons are filled start deflating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So amazing We had trouble opening the valve but once we did it filled 5 large aluminum balloon and about 15 latex ones. My event was 10 days ago and I still have some balloons kicking!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 25 Balloons that Faded Fast As most people have written, this is not worth the money. It ends up costing about $1 per balloon (for the very smallest of them to boot!) and they end up deflated within a few hours. You are better off paying a vendor to blow up your balloons or renting a real helium tank. (I blew up the balloons at 10am and they were toast by 5pm!) Sad I spent the money, but lesson learned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! After reading reviews in this tank I almost didn't buy it and I'm so glad I I! It filled all the helium balloons I had- which were huge!- plus about a dozen regular rubber ones. It was for a grad party on June 21st, its now July 12th and the helium balloons are still floating;)
