Acceptable but certainly could be improved.

My first qualm about these tablets is that they are quite brittle and if you happen to carry the tube in your sports bag (as I do) the last 2 or 3 in the tube have a very good chance to end up in little pieces, if not dust.
The 2nd, and significantly more important dissatisfaction is their composition - they contain an artificial sweetener. Why does the manufacturer of such rather specialised sports supplements thinks people engaged in sustained/strainfull physical activity care so little about what they are ingesting as to put such a controversial substance in them is far beyond my comprehension. If the taste of the un-sweetened electrolytes would be too unpleasant why not use fructose or some other non-controversial sweetening substance, as the modicum of caloric input from the later would be absolutely inconsequential to anyone putting themselves through a pace that is requiring supplementing their electrolytes anyway. You will not see too many athletes using "Lite" (artificially sweetened) beverages, these being much more frequently seen accompanying a super-giga-big-burger on the tray of people with a lesser interest in physical activity :-)
