The legal amount of tritium varies greatly from contry to contry. But with the amount of tritium released by Fukushima Japan should lower the legal limit in other products.

I would guess that you could purchase these items, should you really need them, from another source such as Alibaba.com

Could you also please stop the excess flow of tritium thats flowing into the seas surrounding Japan killing the wildlife and us?

the legally allowable limit of 1 billion becquerels

I think there's something missing from that statement. I'm assuming it should be rated to something (per liter, per tonne, per cubic meter, etc.) Does anyone know?

What is the tritium used for in those products? Night glow? Power? Hair removal?

Go to amazon.co.jp and search for tritium... you'll see a lot of watches.

The fun in Japan is slowly being taken away.
