Seems very robust, after a couple years in and out of DS pockets it hasn't broken, I have it in with the halcyon wet notes so it's protected somewhat by the cover.

cost about $4

Ah yes but Cameron they are so cheap only because they are subsidised by the Mexican government. It's cheaper to provide lots of pencils than improve the reliability of the electricity grid...

You'll find candles are very very cheap there too....

Cheers guys I ended up finding some Staedtler wopex ones. They are made from recycled cups I think. Seem to be working pretty well so far. $1 each
