So this dosimeter is for the detection of high radiation, after the fact.
Having said that I would recommend this for anyone that lives near a reactor, get a packet of these for an emergency. They will help the medical personal treat you for radiation sickness. Keep them protected from any radiation before use.
However, it appears that some of my credit cards in my wallet that were behind the sticker have been wipped. Since the machines can't read the magnetic strip even through the "Plastic Bag around the strip" trick.
Since the sticker doesn't have a "Fit" gauge there is no way of knowing if it hasn't been thermally compromised but even then it should have changed colour. And no it's been in my wallet so no UV exposure (once again if it was exposed to UV it would have changed color...believe me I know from many scary experiences of what not to do with those things and where not to leave them).
As a previous reviewer noted,
"This dosimeter works at a very high range.",
This is true. It is also meant to give an accumulative reading over the life of the device.
"...50% of people die is 500 Rem or 500 Rads."
This sticker is not just for instant readings. It is used as an accumulator device. 500 RADS in a short period of time can be a terrible thing. 500 RADS over the course of a year does not mean that 50% have been given a death sentence.
Having said that, it is prudent to check your RADSticker on a regular basis. You could be exposed to a moderate dose without knowing. Since you check your RADSticker on a regular basis, you are ready with the baseline reading in case of a radiological event.
This gives you the knowledge to share with medical staff if you feel that you have been exposed to a high rate over a short period of time.
Buy one for the spouse and kids. I do not have a spouse or kids, If I did I would make a picture locket and place my picture inside and the RADSticker on the back of the picture.
P.S. I have purchased several of these awesome devices to send to my circle of goto people.
