Balloon Time® Standard Helium Tank is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 139.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK, let's get realistic about what this is People seem to have an incorrect idea of what this product is and what it can do. I've purchased 4 of these, about to purchase a 5th. So I've used enough of them to see what's what. First, the tank does contain enough helium for many balloons. "Many" depends on how big you fill them. Foil balloons have a maximum volume, else they pop - rubber balloons are obviously variable. I'd count on getting about 15-20 balloons per tank, though I admittedly have never counted. This may be less than the 30 specified, obviously, and works out to about $1/balloon (less if you use a coupon, which are commonly available). If you don't fill the balloons up enough, they will not float. Or, they might float, but will not float with strings / ribbons attached. This is just physics, and not the fault of the helium / balloon makers. It may take a bit of experimentation, and you will probably have to fill rubber balloons more than you expect to get good performance. My advice is don't be stingy with the helium, even if you risk getting fewer balloons out of it. Those with non-floaty balloons obviously didn't fill them up big enough, but that's hardly the fault of the tank maker. It can take a bit of practice to fill the balloons without leaking helium during the process. It isn't rocket science, and after the first couple you'll get the hang of it. I suspect those saying the tanks are only good for a few balloons are somehow leaking a lot of helium during filling. Helium is slippery stuff. So after filling, ALL balloons will leak helium. Rubber ones are faster, foil ones slower. If you don't tie / seal them correctly, they will leak very fast and lead to disappointing results. I've not had any unusual problems with this, so it's obviously possible to make it work. Foil balloons are more suited for helium. You fill them until full - RIGHT full, like bursting at the seams full - and that's it. They should not leak too fast, and will probably float for 3-4 days. After that, they are still somewhat inflated but will no longer float. Be sure you know how to seal the inlet and attach a string before you begin, else you might leak a bunch before you get it closed up. Rubber balloons will ALL leak helium through the rubber surface. If you buy "helium quality" balloons, they leak slower. "Helium quality" balloons will last a day, TOPS. I KNOW because I've done 6 birthdays using these tanks. THAT'S JUST THE WAY THE BALLOONS ARE, and it's not the fault of this manufacturer. So DON'T fill them until JUST BEFORE you want to use them. Of course, if you buy any balloons at a party shop, they can / will fill them for you. It's even (usually) free for foil balloons. This isn't necessarily handy if the party is not that day, as even foil balloons might deflate in the meantime. Situations like this, or when you can't get to a store, are where this tank is handy, as you can wait to the day of and do the balloons just before their use for maximum effect. Once upon a time, there was a 50-balloon tank that may have been a better value, but this 30-count tank is typically enough for 1 to 1.5 parties. If you don't like that, your options seem to be to somehow find the 50-count tank, visit the party store 2 hours before the party to get balloons filled, spring for a $250 industrial tank of helium, weighing 35 lbs, that needs a $150 regulator to operate, or pay a not-inexpensive service to visit your location and fill 'em up. So, this is what this is - a decent way to be able to fill a reasonable quantity of helium balloons wherever you are. But as it's not filled with magic pixie dust, don't expect rubber balloons to last more than overnight no matter what. And the per-balloon cost IS rather high, which is the price of convenience. If it's not worth the cost, don't whine about it - instead, don't plan on floating balloons for that next camping trip. Based on this, I'm rating it 4 stars simply because of the relatively high per-balloon cost (which I wish was a bit less), and the fact the 50-count tank seemingly isn't available any more. But after 4 tanks, I can confidently say the tank DOES WORK, and it DOES DO what it says on the tin. So for those in need, grab a coupon before buying, fill them big, and enjoy the results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is terrible The helium tank doesn’t fill that many balloons. After the few balloons are filled start deflating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So amazing We had trouble opening the valve but once we did it filled 5 large aluminum balloon and about 15 latex ones. My event was 10 days ago and I still have some balloons kicking!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 25 Balloons that Faded Fast As most people have written, this is not worth the money. It ends up costing about $1 per balloon (for the very smallest of them to boot!) and they end up deflated within a few hours. You are better off paying a vendor to blow up your balloons or renting a real helium tank. (I blew up the balloons at 10am and they were toast by 5pm!) Sad I spent the money, but lesson learned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! After reading reviews in this tank I almost didn't buy it and I'm so glad I I! It filled all the helium balloons I had- which were huge!- plus about a dozen regular rubber ones. It was for a grad party on June 21st, its now July 12th and the helium balloons are still floating;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Perfect! I bought two helium tanks because I read they did not fill up as many balloons as advertised. Both tanks works perfect. We ended up filling up around 24 12 inch balloons and 4 large numbered balloons that said 2018. We still had helium left over in one one of the tanks. Its been 9 days since my party and the 2018 numbers are still floating. We popped the smaller balloons. I think the reviews that mention the balloons sinking after a few hours probably used the balloons in the box. We purchased better quality balloons separate. I would recommend and use these tanks again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from balloon helium very pleased to have gotten it so quick and especially at a good price. haven't used it yet, but I'm sure it will work fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for a few minutes. I bought this the day of my party to avoid driving around with 20 balloons in my car, but it only filled about 10 balloons. I thought I'd save money by purchasing this but it was a complete waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less than 1 Star Sooooo disappointed in this, I thought it would fill balloons like at Party City or somewhere else. However, this tank barely had any helium in it, it got through 2 balloons before they just started sinking to the ground. Then the other tank (I bought two of them a huge mistake, but I was naive and desperate) filled up more however, the next morning the balloons were already deflating: I waste $50 on these! I’m currently looking for a way to get my money back on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure what the one star folks did wrong. We purchased one tank for a birthday party for my sister. We filled a huge "6" and "0" mylar balloons as well as over two dozen regular balloons. We used all the ribbon, but still had air left over. All the balloons floated well. We had a great experience and it was super easy to use. We recommend it for any party.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was a great buy and now it’s overpriced We used this product for two of my daughter’s birthday parties. Had I known that it would no longer be discountable and turned into an “everyday value” I would have loaded up on a couple more last year. It’s not worth $25 to me, so we’ll just use regular air and let the balloons sit around the floor this go-round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price. First of all, do not purchase this item without a coupon (preferably a 40 or 50% off coupon). It's not worth $25... but it is worth $15! I've been using these tanks for years for all my kids B-day parties. The balloons last plenty long enough (I always fill right before the party) and couldn't be easier to use. Also, having free ribbon included is a nice touch (I always forget the darn ribbon!!!).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Purchase Filled up balloons for a friend's birthday party and the balloons laid on the floor after a few hours. It also ran out very quickly. Quality of helium is horrible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good value to buy at all!! Only filled 8 of the typical round mylars. 8 was all I got out of this tank. Terrible value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works well Have had this tank for over 2 years. Seems to work as advertised. Have filled up balloons for several parties. We use balloons designed for helium.
Date published: 2017-11-11
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Runs out very fast The tank inflated 12 small balloons and ran out. It would have cost much less than 25$ to get them done at a store. Its obviously defective.
Date published: 2017-09-27
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't but this product This tank is a waste of money! It took us so long to fill up one balloon with air and that's because hardly any air comes out. Save your cash buy another brand
Date published: 2017-07-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly convenient! Don't know what kind of balloons the others used but my foil balloons stayed up for over a month this time... Latex balloons stay up a fair while as well. There is enough helium for at least six 16 inch foil balloons and some latex balloons. Tank is very easy to use and easy to carry around as well. I've been buying it for 3 yrs now for 2 kids birthdays and will continue to buy it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance Tank dispenses air, but the quality is so poor the balloons literally laid on the ground, worse than blowing them up myself. Tank pressure dropped significantly after just 4 or 5 balloons, not enough pressure to fill any further. Bought this tank on sale, but it was still a bad purchase. Either the tanks are too old for Michael's to be selling them, or the helium supplier has a quality problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BUY WITH COUPON I purchased this for my daughter's baby shower and it worked great. The balloons stayed up for the entire 4 hour party. I had plenty of balloons for the party and I was even able to blow up more balloons a month later to take to the hospital when my grandbaby was born.
Date published: 2017-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal I bought this with a 40% off coupon and didn't have high hopes based on the only review I saw. The regular balloons stayed up for about 24 hours and the mylar balloons are still floating 4 days later. I'm beyond happy with this purchase.
Date published: 2017-02-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Balloons barely floated and didn't fill as many Bought the tank for my daughters birthday. Filled less than half the amount that the box said it would. Balloons floated less than 2 hours. Never buying again. VERY DISAPPOINTED
