    The first one of these that I purchased started malfunctioning after 6 months of very occasional use - not good when you're out in the backcountry and need to purify water. Hopefully the replacement I got won't do the same ...

    Used it on two extended trips. I'm still going strong. No apparent shortcomings of product. Glad that I purchased it as I am a camel when it comes to water consumption on lengthy treks. Made my outings far more enjoyable.

    I bought this from STP at least 6 months ago and never used it until this week, when I broke it out to test it in advance of an upcoming trip. Well, even after reading the instructions, following them to a T, and even having a friend try it, I could not get it to work. Even after the prescribed 90 seconds of fast cranking (which is harder than it sounds) the green lights showing the water was purified did not come on. I have returned it to SteriPen.

    As reported in other reviews, it takes some work to get to purification level, but it can be done! The trick is to keep going for 90 seconds no matter what, set a timer so that you go the whole way, and like magic it releases and is done at exactly 90 seconds. I am a 66 year old woman and was able to do it once I learned the trick. My only complaint is that the regular water bottle top leaks like crazy. I am going to write to steripen about it and see if I can get a new top or bottle replacement.

    This is a very cool and seemingly effective device. The drawback is that it is hard to turn. If one's arm gets tired before the process is complete it is beneficial to have someone to hand it off too.

    Got this for emergency situations where power and clean water are not available. Comes with a pre-filter so that you can filter non-clear water prior to sterilizing. Great price at STP.

    We just got back from Greece and Turkey. I purchased wide mouth water bottles for $1 and we used tap water the whole trip. It was easy and we didn't get sick. I figure we broke even on this trip so the next one we will be saving money. Very easy to use.
