Woah, I missed a lot, forgot to bookmark this one. I appreciate you all for bringing up very valid concerns.
I'll look at running a lead test soon, the most accessible locally are intended for paint testing. There's the 3m Lead Check which is proprietary, and the Resene lead test (Sodium Sulfide). Sodium Sulfide sounds a better option. I don't think I have the capability to run a quantitative test.
@rodanco those sellers usually have hundreds of products. They make one or two pages then copy and paste for all the other products. Seems like they just didn't care check the info was correct.
Could also be false advertising, these tags are for animals and FDX-A, FDX-B,ISO 11784/85 are a big part of that industry.
I'd stay away from those standards because there is very little DIY equipment available, and you need a reader that can deal with the encryption. 125khz or 13.56mhz will give you the most versatility.
Unless of course your goal is to get chipped and have a vet scan you...then everything I said is pointless.
Best is to always question the seller and get the info directly. Later I will post my story and trouble so far regarding that.
I can't see your photo btw.
Purchase date: 3 May 2018
Test date: 7 Aug 2018
Tested with Resene Lead-Based Paint Test Kit (Sodium Sulphide, hydrated 40-45 gms/L)
After an hour there was no visible color change. The test paint sample from the kit did turn dark black.
Added bonus I now know my very old flat isn't painted with lead paint.
it will be a cool project.
Maybe open a new thread for it to keep all the ideas together.
Have you ever seen just the IC chips for sale, without antennas or pcb?
@rodanco I mean only the little black microchip with nothing else. So far I've only seen the same as you, so if we wanted to make our own circuits we would have to take apart tags or cards.
Also tried looking for capsule antennas but couldn't find the correct type.
