The Aspod is ideal if you need to carry ANY aspirin-sized tablet with you. Would highly recommend to anyone with the above need.

I am so very grateful for Aspods generous after sales service. So, now I can add to my previous praise what an excellent after sales customer service you give [and that is getting so rare these days]. Once again thank you!

I think the ASPOD is brilliant! You never know when you might need to use it. If the Aspod had been around 20 years ago we could possibly have saved a gentleman who had a heart attack outside our shop, who knows?
