No More Iodine or Chlorine!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rock from Montana on Monday, September 21, 2015
After years of drinking water flavored with iodine or chlorine, I get to drink water that tastes good! Filters work OK, but they are heavy and tend to require a lot of maintenance, cleaning, boiling, etc. This gizmo takes a just a moment and kills everything, protozoa, bacteria, and viruses. They use a commercial version of this technology to sterilize water in hospitals, so no more Legionaire's Disease.

The only drawback is that the manufacturer does not recommend using standard alkaline batteries, as the electronics in the unit make heavy power demands on the batteries. For a long trip, I would recommend rechargeable batteries and one of those solar panels that straps on the top of your pack.

We used a wire mesh coffee filter that fits in the top of a water bottle to filter out the big stuff in the water.

This device is highly recommended for those that want to go into the back of beyond and drink safe water that is not flavored with iodine or chlorine.
