I am definitely going to have to get in on this one. :D
Tritium is still missing from my illumination tools collection.

Nice, I thought for sure the market on tritium spheres had dried up since all the threads selling them were years old. Now I'm very much looking forward to finally having a cloud of radioactive hydrogen on my keychain!

...It comes with superpowers, right? :D

By the way, when you get a supply, are you going to post in this thread or just make a new one? Any way we can get a heads-up when they finally come in? I have a birthday in February, you know.

Lol. :D
They forgot the code to unlock the superpowers, you'll have to break it... :whistle: :nana:

I still expect them in week 6, there will be a salesthread for both vials and spheres on CPFMP when they are in, I will probably open the thread Feb. 1st so people can subscribe to it. :)

Tritium works by leeching ions and/or lifeforce from nearby mammals. The subatomic particles are transformed into photons when consumed and excreted by a complex network of pseudo-sentient bioluminescent nanodrones. The light emitted is actually the fecal remnants of Martian-engineered, self-replicating, self-sustaining organisms. Here's an article about it:

sorry newbie question -- how do these tritium vials work ?

Shao is talking about the fancy high-end units that civilians can't really get, so you don't need to worry about them. They would run into the low thousands of dollars to buy anyhow.

The ones you find mentioned here contain Tritium, which is an energetic form of Hydrogen. It loses alpha particles (Tritium is unstable) the particles fly out to the walls of the traser, hit the phosphor, knock lose photons and you see it as a glow. They are completely independent of their enviroment, no batteries, no charging, no nothing, but lose 1/2 their brightness every 12 years.

:welcome:
