Take to check out and see price
There were a lot of cycle shops that stopped selling Vista products (owners of the Bell brand) because they sell assault rifles and support the NRA in the states. Wonder if the Bell brand is a bit toxic nowadays. Bell tyres are made by Chen Shin which are fairly low end tyres so would imagine the inner tubes will be another low end supplier. If your buying 26" inner tubes you might as well go with the poundland ones which will probably be equal quality but poundland don't do 700c inner tubes. I've found the poundland inner tubes to be very good if a little heavy although I have no idea if Poundland keep to the same manufacturer. It could change frequently.

I will never buy an item which affects safety in pound land. I normally get them from wiggle or decathlon

How can an bicycle inner tube affect safety? the worst that can happen is a slow puncture

Used one of these in an emergency on a 200k ride and it's still in there 5 months later

Or a fast puncture after a bump when going downhill at 25 miles an hour. You'd lose control. That is how it affects safety.

Well said.

All inner tubes are prone puncture but I prefer not to risk it with very cheap ones.

Considering the high volume, low margin poundland business versus the much higher margin bicycle shops operate on I don't see how you can judge the quality. Many of the budget cycle shop brand inner tubes could be the same factories as the poundland tubes. Also many bicycle shops sell latex tubes which are the most dangerous and weakest tubes because many cyclists are obsessed about bicycle weight. There are a few forum threads about inner tube quality and the poundland one's don't seem to get much attention they just seem to work albeit slightly heavier than some. Wilkinsons, Lidl, Halfords, Decathlon, Planet X and even Continental are criticised.

It's a mute point anyway as it's extremely unlikely these Bell branded inner tubes would be better than Poundland one's. The Bell brand seems to be licensed to go on fairly low quality stuff and this is Walmart we are talking about here and their long history of low quality bicycle products.

That revelation has left me feeling rather deflated!

Flip side is if weight did matter then you would go tubeless (along side other pros beyond weight) and not be looking at this deal either

Bell is a US brand and their products are generally pretty good and not the cheapest.

Walmart in the US is full of tat branded 'Bell' and the quality for much of it is quite poor but I guess there is a difference between actual Bell products and where the brand is licensed by another company possibly walmart themselves. They just slap it on to any low end generic chinese product. I have no problem with cheap chinese products as long as they remain cheap but often such licensing means they go up in price with no actual advantage for the end user.

They be coming - schwalbe quote their fastest tyre as tubeless- other than running mtb at lower pressure all other pros are the same - just limited tyre choices at present.
I’m ghetto tubeless on one of my MTB and have had about 2 punctures in 6 years ... literally full of thorns and glass .... I’m just interested to see how they work with the high pressures ... think they will need a different thicker fluid
