Default Skater horn?

I'm looking at getting a horn to alert oblivious drivers that they are about to do something stupid like pull out out of driveway in the path of a skater doing 30+.

It might also be useful if I were to repeat New York 100K as encouragement to recreational cyclist to clear a path.

I actually purchased an aerosol horn a few months back but the canister arrived empty. I gather that is a common problem with these kinds of horns. Even if you can avoid self discharge, you only get a handful of blasts before the gas runs out. It may not work when I need it and it certainly won't do for the 19 laps of New York 100K.

A small, electric Bicycle Horn looks like a more practical solution but there any non-obvious practical considerations to work out. All the ones I have found and mean to be bar-mounted and often have a remote activator.

Has anyone here used a horn while skating? Which one? How did you carry it?
