I was gifted one of these by a good friend last Christmas and my dad liked it so well I thought that he was going to claim it! So I did a bit of research on the tritium and joined this last drop. I'm not sure I've ever seen more people complaining about nothing than in this discussion thread (actually, seeing internet comments and conversations over the past two years, that might not be true). But seriously - I joined this drop just like any other and then spent a total of 5 minutes ordering my vials from mixglo.com (I looked at tritiumkeychains, but they seem to be out of red tubes (lol) at the moment). Now all I have to do is wait. I can't believe all of the negative comments when it's been clearly explained several times that the vials cannot be sold within the US. All this complaining about the hassle of having to source them separately - seriously, I was able to join the drop and order the vials in under 10 minutes. Maybe a bit longer if you're really indecisive about which color(s) you want.

Update: for the record, I placed my order for with mixglo.com on April 16 and received my vials today, April 22. Less than a week from order to door. I used the $10 registered mail shipping option. YMMV but I hope this helps anyone who is curious about how long they should expect to wait when ordering from Taiwan. I highly recommend Daniel's product and service! (FYI - one could opt to save a few bucks and use one of the cheaper shipping methods, but given the price of the vials I felt more comfortable spending a bit more for registered mail with tracking. There are also faster shipping options if you're willing to pay for them but I think that a week is entirely reasonable) Oh and the vials are quite bright! (The glow on my hand is not from the vials, but from a light on the back of my PC. I think. Maybe my hand is already irradiated. Will update again if I gain superpowers.)

The promo email I got from Massdrop states: TEC Accessories Isotope Triode Glow Fob: 3x the Tritium for $27.99 That math is flawed. It's over 9000x the tritium!

I have a tritium watch which is my go-to bedtime watch. I found the red vial at 12 o'clock a bit dim so I bought two green ones from FastTech and glued them on either side of the dim red one and now it's perfect. I mention it here because FastTech sells a variety of vials that would fit this item.

What good is this thing without the tritium vials???????? Nice idea but poor thinking of selling this not completed with all the parts. I was ready to hit buy until I seen that it does not include the isotope sticks

It's not that you cannot buy tritium vials, you just cannot buy them from a US based source that is not licensed (a license which is virtually impossible to get for "locators"). There are a number of companies selling tritium from overseas, several are mentioned the the threads below. And BTW, it is not illegal to own tritium vials.

I was looking at fyrfytr's numbers. Key fob in Ti, $40.00. 6 colors of tritium vials $60.00. So I get to ask myself a question, "Would I rather have $100 in my pocket or hanging (in a rather non-negotiable fashion) on my keychain.?" I don't need to ask the audience. I don't need to make a phone call. (50:50 is out because there are only two answers.) I'm keeping my money. It's quite a fascinating item, however. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure could get you one of these.

No Problem. I was really bummed to come to my desicion honestly. I love the idea and presentation if some of these, but it's just not there for the price IMO. If there is a new/brighter one coming as I saw soemone say, I will happily buy one if the price is comparable (+30% for "new tech"), and they are noticeably brighter.

I purchased mine from mixglo in Taiwan. Shipping can be expensive, so make sure you bundle as many markers as you can. I got mine before the CBSA became dicks and I didnt have any problems with duties or inspections... these days, they seem to inspect everything. You won't find them for sale in Canada

Well, this would have been pretty cool, but without the tubes.... Not worth it, for me at least. Ahh, well.

I believe it would be an awesome idea to offer the vials as an add on.

Due to the radioactive nature of tritium, it is classified as a controlled substance. Pretty ridiculous, as other countries such as the UK have no issue with selling it over the counter

Again the government overstepping into something trivial.it's not as if you can buy enough to do anything lethal with it. :-( I guess I'll have to find them else where hopefully not for an arm and a leg.Thank you for the feedback

Will 22.5mm tubes work or do they need to be exactly 23?

I get mine from mixglo.com. I've done a few orders there and they've always done a good job packing and shipping quickly.
