Can I use the 12 gram cartridges in my Innovations Ultraflate that are sold in Wal Mart, Kmart? The neck looks much slimmer than the threaded 16 gram cartridges I've always used.

Mine take both kinds of cartridges, but some models do not. If they fit, then the cheap-mart cartridges are the way to go. The ones that take unthreaded will have a threaded plastic holder around the cartridge that pushes the cartridge into the nossle as it pierces the top.

The ones at the store are 12g cartridges, just big enough to fill a 700c tire to about 95psi. It'll get you home ok. But they don't screw on so you need to have the co pump that can hold it's own cartridge. I prefer them due to price. TTFN

If your Kmart is like mine, they never have anything. Try a sporting goods store that stocks air guns/rifles. Big 5 stocks them behind the counter in packages of five for under $6.00 (12 gram). Kmart is probably cheaper, but in a pinch this is a good source...
