abunda_amazon_reviews This product looked to be exactly what I wanted for the cycling stage of triathlon and HIM/Ironman events. Up front, it does everything they advertise, mostly. It is easy to install in the handlebars, but you will end up using two rubber washers to hold it in place - and they only supply one of each size washer. Even then, some electrical tape around the end will help keep it in place on rougher sections of road. The mechanism is a simple screw type mechanism in use since Roman and Greek times, so there is really no excuse for the notchy and gritty feel to the knob as it is rotated during use, and the occasional binding of the mechanism. Loading and dispensing are complicated by the rough mechanism, which mostly fails to fully eject the last capsule. Since the last capsule is left hanging, it must be pulled out with your fingers. Many capsules of electrolytes consist of a large end slipped over a small end, and that is a problem for this dispenser. When you pull on the last (6th) capsule to remove from the dispenser, if the capsule was inserted large end first, that end will ALWAYS be peeled off by the dispenser, leaving you with a half capsule shell and fingers coated in electrolyte powder! If the capsule was inserted small end first, that end will SOMETIMES be peeled off during the dispensing operation, again leaving electrolyte powder on your hands. This device will work for my application, but it is not worth the $23 I paid (or even the currentl Amazon price of $16). In operation it feels like a throw away $2 toddlers toy, doesn't come with an adequate number of washers, and really fits the worst stereotype image called forth by the "made in China" label. It is so cheaply made that you begin to wonder if the plastics are food grade safe. I feel that $10 would have been more than adequate pricing for something that feels as if it should have come free with a large bottle of SaltStick electrolyte tabs (which are a very good product.) For the price I paid, or even the current price of $16, however, the product should have at least been made with a more precise operation and in a manner that doesn't destroy the final electrolyte capsule. I will continue to use it for events, but I don't have the feeling it will last more than 1 or 2 riding seasons.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 1, 2010;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Works fairly well, but cheap construction;;J.
