Balloon Time Helium Kit for £16.00 @ direct.asda.com

30
Found 22nd Dec 2013
Usually priced @ £22 ..u can grab a saving of £6.
as Asda are selling these for £16.
I remember last year this time many Hukders found it for a meagre £5 in some stores but I have not seen them under £20 recently.

I would say if you are not in a rush..prefer clicking n collecting as My own local instore price was still £22 and they werent matching the online price.
So not Sure if at all any instore purchases will be matched up.

Good maths

The wrong figure was written down it should say £22 so really the math is correct lol

Good price but the reviews say you only get about 18 balloons filled with it not 30. Either way it's still a good deal

Is there any expiry date on these? I only blow up the odd balloon throughout the year, so would need it to last a good few year's for the money.

Love these, so handy i just order my balloon off eBay or often find balloons reduced, then always got helium if i need it. Dont think expiry date my last one i had well over a year. Hot!

Can I just say something about helium? It's an element which we can't make, so it's a finite resource and it is needed in things like MRIs. Should we really be putting it in balloons?

Anything that makes me sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks hot!

Perfect, need this for a christening. Thank you

Yes we should put it in balloons

Good price. But I can't help thinking in the future our kids aren't going to believe we wasted such a precious resource to inflate balloons

"We're going to be looking back and thinking, I can't believe people just used to fill up their balloons with it, when it's so precious and unique," quote from Peter Wothers, Cambridge University chemist as per bbc.co.uk/new…034

It is particularly for babies that we need to retain helium stocks, as what if that baby grows up to need an MRI scan in later life?

buy loads and loads of these because helium is on the decline. think of it as an investment.

Remember these only fill half the amount of balloons quoted on the box if you inflate the balloons to the usual 11" size ( a chart hidden on the side of the box will tell you this) . If it includes balloons they will be cheap 9" size that look awful and only float about 5-6 hours - only really suitable for kids parties.

Oh and most balloon helium is what is recovered from MRI scanner use. For MRI scanners it has to be 100% pure technical helium. Balloon quality helium is not 100% pure and no good for most technical uses.

even though it's the second most abundant element in the universe

just ordered 2, I have no intentions of blowing up balloons with it just to inhale as much as possible and sound like the BEE GEE'S !!!

I ROCK ........................:)

The Bee Gee's what?

i would assume everyone is powering their cars, and houses with solar and wind energy then.

Good find OP - I paid £25 for this @ Tescos (needed for that shark deal earlier). Heat added.

oos

Don't worry, people, controlled nuclear fusion to generate electricity is just around the corner and we'll have all the helium we'll ever need (and some more) ...

'There actually is plenty of helium on Earth. In fact, it’s the second most abundant element in the universe, after hydrogen. But it’s a byproduct of natural gas production, so when natural gas prices are at historic lows, as they’ve been, production of both gases declines.'

Yes. As the BBC article explains:

"In the universe as a whole, it is one of the commonest elements, second only to hydrogen in its abundance. On Earth it is relatively rare, and one of the few elements that escapes gravity and leaks away into space."

I fear for the future of humanity when out most precious element is wasted in kids balloons and idiots making squeaky voices. Google 'helium shortage'.
