Personal CO detectors/monitors/alarms

Question, How many folks here use a personal CO detector, and if so, what brand and what did you pay for it and where did you purchase it? (I know the rule about talking price, but I don't think anyone here is selling personal CO detectors, so it doesn't apply)

If you do work with fired appliances and you don't own one, why not?

Mine is a Rattler by Industrial Scientific. It cost $200 from WW Graingers, and is guaranteed for 2 years. It starts alarming at 35 ppm. It clips on my belt. <a href="http://www.indsci.com/T40/">http://www.indsci.com/T40/</a>

Let's see, thats $200.00 divided by 730 days of protection, that means it costs me $0.27 per day.... I consider that a worthwhile investment.

And it HAS gone off numerous times when I wouldn't have normally considered myself to be in jeopardy. Like walking the isles of Home Despot, in a casino near an open hearth gas log fire place, in my mother in laws kitchen (oven).

What's yours?

It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.
