SteriPEN Handheld Emergency Water Purifier – Review



Steripen is a “must have” for any 72 hour kit, go bag or emergency kit. In almost any emergency, having an available supply of safe, clean water is a top priority.

It’s the perfect tool to insure you and your family have safe drinking water in an emergency. The SteriPEN uses ultraviolet light to purify water so there is no chemical taste, odor or risky side-effects. I’ve tried a number of purifiers and while most work as promised in purifying the water, the taste is often times so bad the water is virtually undrinkable.

SteriPENs are validated by the most extensive library of testing of any portable water treatment method. Multiple laboratories have proven that it’s ultra-violet light eliminates viruses, bacteria, and protozoa to keep your drinking water safe in an emergency. In fact, every unit is tested before packaging to insure that it exceeds the UV output standard to keep your family safe.

SteriPEN is easy to use in baby bottles, a glass in your hotel room or restaurant, or commercial water bottles and it will protect your pet’s water as well. Most people are not aware that pets won’t drink chemically treated water. With a SteriPEN, you’re carrying hundreds of gallons of pure water in your pocket, purse , glove box, or emergency kit.

It weighs just 8 ounces with four AA, disposable batteries and will purify 16 ounces of water in 48 seconds, or 32 ounces in 90 seconds. The ultraviolet light (UV)  actually destroys the DNA of microorganisms, making  them unable to reproduce and cause illness. It’s effective against outdoor microbes like giardia and cryptosporidium; pathogens that cause diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis, and Legionnaire’s Disease; household germs such as bird flu, E. coli, and salmonella; staph and strep; and natural-disaster risks like botulism, cholera, smallpox, and typhoid.

No pumping, no chemicals, no test strips, no timekeeping, no lubricating, and no replacement filters are required. All that is required is to push the water purifier’s button (once for 32 ounces, twice for 16 ounces), place the pen-like lamp in clear water, and stir until an indicator light turns green. Water has no aftertaste after being purified.

It’s simple to use, easy to store and could save your life in an emergency.
