Unlike most other gas switching tubes, the krytron conducts by means of an arc discharge, to handle very high voltages and currents (reaching several kilovolts and several kiloamperes), rather than the low-current glow discharge used in other thyratrons.
I have boxes of resistors, capacitors, transistors, ICs, and vacuum tubes I've picked up over the years in hopes of someday needing them for a repair or a project I never got to.
