Carried everywhere your keys go, NukAlert's 24/7 constant radiation monitoring, alerts you if you are being exposed to dangerous levels of radiation. the NukAlert is a compact key chain attachable radiation Monitor & alarm. Monitoring is always on, using a built in long-life (ten+ year) battery. The devices range encompasses higher emergency radiation levels. There are 10 easily recognizable 'chirping' alarms. The NukAlert has a Patent-Pending 'State of the Art' Detector Technology that has been verified by independent National Radiological Laboratory. Each NukAlert is individually tested for radiation detection accuracy. Package includes an instruction manual with personal nuclear survival strategies. It Meets the FCC and European Community requirements for Electromagnetic Compatibility, emissions and susceptibility. it has also, passed EMP immunity tests and meets the MIL-STD-461D, RS105 standard. its has a 2 year warranty plus a 10 year prorated warranty. NukAlert is made in U.S.A. SPECIFICATIONS: * Detects Gamma & X-ray radiation: 20 keV to 2+ MeV * Detection Range: 100 mR/hr to 5,000 R/hr * Sensitivity: 100 mR/hr to 50 R/hr indicated in 10 ranges * Proportional Increasing Chirp Rate: 50 R/hr to 5,000 R/hr * Indication: Repeating groups of rapid countable chirps * Operational indicator: faint "ticking" = operating OK. * Alarm loudness: ~ 61 dBA (speaking volume) * Durability: Functional after 6' drop or submersion to 6' * Battery: Operational Life Expectancy @ room temp: - Non-alarming (normal operation) - 10 to 15 years - Alarming continuously at single chirp level - 3 years - Alarming continuously at highest alarm level - 3 months - See NEW Battery Replacement Program * Detector: Patented CdS photo resistor coupled to a rare earth phosphor scintillator # Accuracy: Within +/- 1 chirp # Response Time: Dose rate dependent: * ~3 - 4 min. @100mr/hr * seconds @ R/hr ranges

The number of chirps gradually decreased until stopping after more than 1 hour. Since the xray dose was momentary I had expected it to stop much sooner. In a real radiation situation I think its constant chirping could give a false impression that you're still surrounded by radiation even if you might have vacated the source area.
Another problem is that it measures radiation in Roentgen units, which I later learned is a legacy unit of energy. The problem with this is that because most reports of radiation I hear or read about is in Sieverts, I'm now learning that I must convert from Roentgen to Rad, which is the dose equivalent, then from Rad to Gray, which is the SI equivalent, then from Gray to Sieverts. What further complicates this is that because some of these scales are affected by dry air versus soft tissue, there is no standard method of conversion. Basically I want to know what n mSv = n R, and that x number of chirps = n mSv so that I understand what's going on in my environment & share information that is meaningful to others.
When comparing this to the K8, I chose NukAlert because it reports detection of DANGEROUS LEVELS of radiation whereas the K8 detects only very low levels. The table on the back of the device helps determine what the exact situation is.
