I agree, if its an instant heal. My thoughts were more towards applying an aoe heal over time, that doesn't stack.

It'd be a handy tool, but restrictions on the number you can carry would make you use it wisely, and you couldn't just spam them to effectively give your guys hundreds of hitpoints. It'd be good to lay one down before a charge, or to quick heal everyone up before more incoming arrive.
