I got the insert too, but it doesn't seem to be the hydrostatic one. The sale starts the 1st of August.

I've been using a couple of the pill type autos for about 5 years in rain and spray etc. and never had a problem with accidental inflation, used to worry about it also, had visions of being trapped in the head with an inflated one .

How long will an inflatable stay inflated? Thinking about virtually any rubber/plastic inflatable material, it gets all deViagra'd within several hours of inflation. So I'm wondering what the "floating life" of these things are.

Anyone know?
