An excellent traffic cone to ensure your safety when needed. It's highly visible and has a flashing LED light with reflective strips. It's simple to use, inflates from flat pack to full size in only a couple of minutes and deflates just as quickly. Requires 2 x AA batteries (not included).
£5.69 on ebay

I bought one of these and it's rather lovely
Not being sarcastic (well maybe a lil) but what stops it blowing away? Is it somehow weighted down?

yes it is a bit heavy, the base is fairly solid and the cone bit just flops down when deflated.

packed weight is 2.5 kgs, it's less heavy than that though

And the 2 cold voters are explaining where I can get another cheaper?

Oooh errr missus!

Ty for explanation, I guess it takes up less room than a normal cone but wouldnt a warning triangle suffice?

(Heat added for excellent price)

ah but this lights up and flashes once a second, and is far more cheerful than a triangle. It takes about the same room as our triangle actually as it came in a case.

so deal has gone fro +6 to minus 10 without anyone indicating where a cheaper one can be bought. Gee zus
I could imagine how great its gonna be blowing this thing up on the side of the road, in the middle of the night with speeding trucks aproaching. A triangle is much quicker to set up and just as effective.

it has a built in hand pump thingy but i guess if you have small lungs like me it could take a minute or two.

but I still have 2 red triangles in my car anyway, and a blanket and 2 litres of water and some candles, so best be prepared. Think this might be good in the fog or if half buried in snow.

Also good for running around whilst wearing it on your head, without fear of arrest or prosecution

From looking at the picture I thought this was VLC Media Player.....
To me this looks pretty dangerous. Can just see a car whipping by, sucking it out into the road and another car hitting it and crashing.

Off to buy 5....... X)
