We’re exposed to background radiation every day of our lives. And while some level of radiation is natural, higher concentrations can be the result of poorly shielded electronic equipment, X-rays, CT scans or even air travel.
Beyond the substantial threat of nuclear meltdowns, disasters and fallout, this excess background radiation can add up over the years and contribute to substantial health issues.
Fortunately, there’s now a practical solution you can take everywhere to monitor and measure your exposure—the MIRA Safety Geiger-1 radiation detector.
Only slightly larger than a ballpoint pen, the Geiger-1 is a fully-featured handheld dosimeter that offers the same reliability as a professional-grade Geiger counter at a fraction of the price and without the bulky size. It’s built from an impact-resistant polymer with an easy-to-read LCD screen and two buttons, making it one of the simplest and most user-friendly dosimeters on the market today.
With a customizable radiation threshold, tone and light settings, it’s easy to personalize but designed for practical use right out of the box. At the press of a button, you can read either background radiation or the device’s accumulated dose.
Best of all, the Geiger-1 Geiger counter tucks easily into a pocket, purse or backpack so it will always be ready when you need it—providing you with a potentially life-saving tool that makes you more aware of your environment and ready to face a range of twenty-first century threats. The first step toward protecting yourself from background radiation is identifying it with a reliable radiation meter.
The Geiger-1 uses two LR44 alkaline button (watch) batteries, making it easy and affordable to operate for every member of your family. Battery changes take just a few seconds before you’re back on the go.
The Geiger-1 Geiger counter is one of the most revolutionary dosimeters on the market today, a perfect choice for anyone who lives within 2-300 miles of a nuclear power plant or anyone who’d feel more comfortable with an added layer of protection for your loved ones.
It’s a perfect addition for bug-out bags and disaster prep, since it’s compact, reliable, durable, and it runs on batteries that are long-lasting and easy to find.
So, grab a Geiger-1 dosimeter / Geiger counter and start learning more about your environment today!
