Still exempt as far as I've heard. Even if they aren't it isn't worth testing one as unless you know someone who does tests cheap a new bottle isn't more than a couple of quid extra.

As long as it's pi marked then you're cool

The cylinder may be marked for 5 years, but the chances are it would be aluminium (of the right grade) and valid for 10

But due to the capacity at only 13ci it is still exempt. So if condition looks good whenever it's used then you're fine
