We have answered all the most frequently asked questions about our Kingii, the smallest flotation device in the world. Remember that better understanding the device you are wearing is important for your safety and that of others. Find out everything you need to know and start having fun!
The Kingii (ken-gee) is named after the frilled-neck lizard, or the Chlamydosaurus kingii. The frilled-neck lizard has a large frill around it’s neck that expands when it’s in trouble – much like our Kingii can inflate when you find yourself in an emergency situation in the water. Our mascot Kingii George helps remind you about water safety and drowning awareness.
Each Kingii wearable purchased comes with one Kingii CO2 Cylinder. Additional Kingii CO2 Cylinders are available for purchase.
The Kingii wearable is small but packs a big punch! At just 4.9 ounces, the Kingii can be worn without interfering with your favorite water activity.
With NATO wristband that will perfectly fit everybody.
Currently, the Kingii is available in a “One size fits most“ version. The wristband can be adjusted easily.
The Kingii was designed to be suitable for any kind of water sport. Whether it be swimming, surfing, snorkeling, fishing, or stand up paddling, the Kingii is the perfect companion for you!
The Kingii Wearable contains a Cartridge with 12 grams of pressurized, non-flammable CO2 gas. In air travel it is regarded as hazardous material.
However, based on a ruling of the IATA, the international trade association of the world‘s airlines, you are allowed to carry four such cartridges with you on an airplane in carry-on and checked luggage with approval of the aircraft operator (Table 2.3A, Subsection 2.3 from the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulation).
Since not all of the ground personnel may be aware of these official regulations, we recommend that you download and print this document and take it with you on your journey.
Kingii is not a Personal Flotation Device (PFD) and cannot replace a life-vest, but it is a recreational water-device. We recommend wearing Kingii as an additional backup device together with an authorized PFD.
Grazie al suo design discreto e durevole Kingii è perfetto per ogni persona, adulti e bambini!
The Kingii Wearable is tested and proven to provide buoyancy to an adult in excess of 130 kg.
For your own safety we do not recommend to use different CO2 Cylinder as the performance of the Kingii may suffer due to loss of pressure or similar.
