Titanium Glow Fob

Titanium Glow Fob

The bad news is that this Titanium Glow Fob is not fitted with a vial of tritium, and therefore does not glow without help, shine brighter the darker it gets, and have a half-life of 12.3 years. The hand-made glow pellet inside this 6AI-4V titanium housing needs some daytime or light bulb charging to achieve its brilliant blue-green glow. But I think overall, its non-tritium-ness dings the Glow Fob only a few cool points. It will still get the seek-and-find job done in the dark, and once exposed to light can hold its blaze for up to 12 hours.

Plus, the analogous tritium versions of the keychain I've showed you over the years (e.g., here and here) keep getting sold out or discontinued.

The Titanium Glow Fob is 1.58" long and weighs just 0.16 ounce. Its glow tube is filled with strontium aluminate powder mixed with resin. The keychain comes packaged in a foam-lined case and has an affixed 7/16" diameter split ring, plus a snap clip for attachment to bags, zippers, and other items.
