Question How many fills?

How many times can I fill my 280cc bottle to 232bar from a 3ltr 300bar bottle
Thanks in advance for your answers.

At what pressure do you refill?

If you visit my club website you will find a spreadsheet you can download for free.

What is more, it allows for the fact that 300 bar air is not as "useful" as it might seem. Many of the other calculators are too optimistic at 300 bar.

Conor was asking, what is the pressure in the 280cc bottle when you choose to refill it?

If it's empty, you'll get fewer fills than if you top it up when it's only half empty....

The answer is 5.

The 6th fill will take you to about 227 bar, not 232.
