Less than three seconds.
ARE YOU ALLOWED TO TRAVEL WITH THE AIRBAG AND THE CARTRIDGES?
Absolutely no problem. the IATA ( International Air Transport Association) declares cartridges with less than 200 bars as not dangerours.

AS THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT CARTRIDGES, DOES IT MATTER IN WHICH POSITION EACH CARTRIDGE IS INSTALLED?
Each cartridge has its own screw thread size, meaning it will only fit in its intended spot.
