that's some pretty hazardous stuff. these things are banned from many countries.. how much tritium is in this? I heard large amount of tritium causes bone cancer and other health risks.. radioactive stuff i tell ya..

pretty crazy stuff if you accidently broke it and touched it.. or ingest or inhale..

From wiki:

Tritium is relatively similar to hydrogen, which makes it bind to OH as Tritiated water (HTO), and that it can make organic bonds (OBT) easily. The HTO and the OBT are easily ingested by drinking, through organic or water-containing foodstuffs. As tritium is not a strong beta emitter, it is not dangerous externally, but it is a radiation hazard when inhaled, ingested via food, water, or absorbed through the skin.

Time to dig up this thread.

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.777

8 LED Phone Line Powered Lamp - Many telcos are still required to send active power down phone lines so that the old "rotary" style phones will be able to ring the mechanical bell. It degrades the signal no worse than having a rotary phone in your house. Free light!

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.15823

Rechargeable Digital Pin-hole Spy Camera + USB Drive Disguised as Working Pen (2GB) - Yeah, James Bond baby.

http://www.dealextreme.com/search.dx/se ... use%20feet

Teflon mouse feet replacements. A seriously good upgrade for any serious gamer (carefully use superglue to make the permanent) cheap too.

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.13147

If they actually made this compatible with Canadian outlets, I'd be buying boxes of them... Unfortunately they are not compatible, but maybe someday....

Soo much good stuff, that would otherwise be impossible to find or horrendously expensive locally. Why can't we make 1/10th of this stuff in Canada?

You're just a simple adapter away. It won't be pretty, but it would work.

Oh, I picked this one up. Comes in a nice box too. :razz:
Pretty cool for the price and it's not much more dangerous than the red ones.

So can I get one? Those things sound awesome, but radiation poisoning in a few decades doesn't really seem worth it :|

Why is it dangerous? Can you burn someone's retina with this? Does anyone know how long the Spy Pen last on continuous record? I can't imagine the battery to be too good one these.
