They both do the same job Kevin, so go for the cheapest
Mamod sell there tablets for £5.50 and Wilesco sell there's for £4.99
(Both can be bought cheaper on ebay though)

Just in a plain wrapper, the seller also does 80, for them really big steaming jobs!

Buy in bulk, its cheaper.

80 tablets cost £17, post free.
