Lighter, faster and half the size of its predecessor (the Classic), the new SteriPEN Adventurer uses UV light to sterilize sketchy water in under a minute. Ensuring safe drinking water where ever your travels take you, I would not have survived without it on my recent travels to countries like Cambodia and Laos.

Just press the button and place the lamp end in the water and stir. If you prematurely take the lamp out of the water, the purifier will warn you with a red light that the water is not ready to drink. There is no need for chemicals or harsh treatments that leave your water tasting like metal. Using the same sterilization technique as hospitals, the Adventurer can purify 16 ounces of water in 48 seconds, killing bacteria and viruses related to Dysentary, E. Coli, Salmonella, Cholera, Typhoid Fever and Giardia, among others—ailments could ruin your trip or even worse.

A must have for summer travels, the Adventurer SteriPEN is available at Amazon for $130.
