Sterilize Water in an Emergency with SteriPEN Adventurer

Steripenadventurer Steri-Advent-Glass

If you're looking for the ultimate emergency device, we think the SteriPen Adventurer is a great choice for home and travel. Lighter, faster and half the size of its predecessor (the Classic), the new SteriPEN Adventurer uses UV light to sterilize water in under a minute. This will help to ensure safe drinking water where ever you are and also make having a large supply of water not as necessary (though for hurricane season we recommend it.)

Simply fill a 16 oz. or 32 oz. glass, plastic, ceramic or metal container with clear water, push the activation button once for 32 oz. or twice for 16 oz., dip it in the container and stir slightly to agitate the water. Ultraviolet light is invisible to the human eye, but a visible blue light indicates that the SteriPen Adventurer is working and shuts off as soon as a full dose has been delivered. The SteriPen Adventurer purifies 16 oz. of water in 48 seconds and 32 oz. in 90 seconds! The UV light breaks down the DNA of viruses, bacteria and cysts, rendering them harmless. Because the penetration of UV light can be limited by discoloration, solids and debris, it is important that clear, unfrozen water be used.

I can speak with experience on this... I travel quite a bit to various parts of the world. On one multi-country trip I became extremely ill from (I believe) contaiminated water. After that, I tried a variety of pumps, carbon filters, and chemical treatments. I finally settled on steripen because it is so easy to pack and use. I've upgraded from the steripen classic to the steripen adventurer, and also got the steripen solar charger.

It's a great little unit that takes up no room at all and I take everywhere I go. My sister uses a steripen for hiking/backpacking and camping. With the steripen adventurer I am ready if there is a problem with our local water supply plus I can brush my teeth when I travel overseas and know I won't get sick!
