It also has Achilles heel limitation applied to its unkillable.
That could work, instead of a Gadget Limitation.

I donít feel this works as a wash; you can strap it to yourself, in which case itís no different from a typical Breakable Gadget, but you also have the option of leaving it somewhere safe, strapping it to a more competent ally, etc. Having additional options is by definition less limiting. How much less limiting, however, Iím not certain of.

Well, unless the original intent was that all Gadgets that lacked Stealable work this way, but I donít think thatís implied by the text and examples...
